TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDERS CELEBRATE TALK OF A DEAD TREE MEDIA PAY CUT FOR YAEL!!!
Once again on this chilly-ass morning we're reminded that this town's media scene is cold-blooded.
Accordingly . . .
TALK OF A KANSAS CITY STAR PAY CUT FOR COLUMNIST YAEL ABOUHALKAH HAS INSPIRED HOPE AMONG LOCAL POLITICAL DENIZENS THAT THE DAYS OF THIS DEAD TREE MEDIA DUDE CASTING LIGHTNING BOLTS DOWN FROM HIGH UPON HIS IVORY TOWER MIGHT SOON COME TO A END!!!
The word on this media cutback corresponds with ongoing Kansas City Dead Tree Media FAIL and the continuing decline of Sunday newspaper circulation.
Notice that Yaal has abandoned most of his bloggy efforts and mainly dedicates his time toward pushing Mayor Sly's local control effort that nobody wants . . .
Moreover . . . A Kansas City Insider sums up things nicely . . .
"The Star might finally be seeing what everyone else does . . . That guy is out of touch and no longer has any roots or connection to the people in this city. His opinions aren't reflecting the voice of a community, he's just going off on a tangent of his own and the newspaper is seeing that in their numbers."
While we agree that Yael is out of touch and don't really lament this talk of salary slicing given that he's got a stab for TKC whenever this blog gets a mention . . . It's simply Dead Tree Media obsolescence that has determined the career fate of so many seemingly embittered print journalists who spend most of their time complaining on the Internets
virtually indistinguishable from just like bloggers.
