KCTV5 Website Tech Troubles & Complaints
We've heard from a few of you about an alleged crackdown on the KCTV5 website and the removal of the comment section on certain posts . . . Mostly related to Ferguson.
Sadly, that's been pretty much common practice for most news agencies given an exceptionally racially divisive Summer. To be fair, even supporters and donors of the officer who killed Michael Brown have been under fire for their racial comments . . . So that crackdown on the site has more than a bit of precedent.
We like the content that KCTV5 publishes and don't begrudge them a bit of editing given that they have to keep corporate bosses happy. However, we still want to acknowledge local Internets frustration AND share this quick photo of one of their news vans breaking down about a week ago.
