TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY STAR PAYWALL CRUMBLES!!!



More news of yet another DEAD TREE MEDIA scheme in decline . . .

KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS NO LONGER NOTICE THE KANSAS CITY STAR PAYWALL!!!

"Star web site now open to non-payers again. Maybe the pay wall cost them too many readers? As of tonight, I found it accessible. Not sure whether it's a glitch or a policy change..."

Frankly, TKC isn't really concerned with the antics of Dead Tree Media given that KSHB vs. KMBC are fighting for news domination while KCPT and KCUR dominate the analysis and perspective side for the intelligentsia (about two or three dozen locals) ... Watching the Star circle the toilet bowl of history is really nothing more than good fun.

Also . . . For those of us who know how use our browser settings (incognito) that Star's paywall never really applied.

Still . . . It's interesting to see yet another Kansas City Star biz decision turn out horribly wrong.

The Star seems to be more supportive of business interests than common citizen interests. We've just grown apart I guess.

Using the National Government ID ans spying setup Facebook for comments doesn't help either.

There is a reason it's down. What your MEDIA INSIDERS don't know why?

There's a surprise.

Honestly, I hadn't noticed that there was a paywall. 'Wasn't aware that they were still in business.

OK. So, then: What's the reason?

Not only has TKC swallowed a dictionary so he can keep shitting out big words to impress his flock but now he he wants us to believe he's tech savvy also.

I don't read the star often. So it doesn't matter.

I will agree that I'd rather watch and listen to opinion and editorial on KCPT and KCUR than read about a week later in The Star.

It won't matter a lot when at least 75% of the articles won't allow comments.

How come the pay wall was always down for Mary Sanchez dribble?

It is apparent to me that anon 958 doesn't know that Tony created the internet.
