Kansas City Star Cutbacks Continue

JimmyCSays offers his perspective on the downward spiral for the biggest newspaper in Kansas City amid the digital age: "The Star has eliminated its Op-Ed page on Mondays. That means that henceforth on Mondays, we’ll only be getting one page of editorial content, instead of two."

On a VERY positive note, if that means that we don't have to suffer from Diuguid's incessant whining that "we've come a long way, but we're not there yet" insisting that we're still in the 1960s and always will be, we should all be glad about this latest phase of the Star's disappearance.
Most of the experienced reporters are gone and those who are left are just carrying water for the city, the Chamber swells, or some local corporation.
The days when the Star was "The paper for the people" has been a distant memory for some time.

They're just cutting the nationally sydnicated columnists. That's probably a good move. Why pay for content that's not local.

Concentrate on the local, THAT is the way to save the paper!

Better yet, KILL the paper (it would be an act of mercy rather than let it linger and suffer like it is now) and let the city get its news from real sources in real time!

Thanks Jimmy C.

In other related news......Tony's Kansas City website, along with local TV, continue to leave the Kansas City Falling Star in the dust....the dustbin of old legacy media!
