Dead Tree Media: The Kansas City Star Stopped Counting Homicides In 2016



Quick update on Kansas City media amid another violent weekend.

The best and brightest among our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY want to remind folks about the struggling newspaper that isn't just losing reader resources but also a great deal of their reporting power . . .

For instance . . .

THE KANSAS CITY STAR CLAIMS NOBODY HAS BEEN KILLED THIS YEAR INSIDE CITY LIMITS!!!

At least according to their website: homicide.kansascity.com

A screenshot taken just moments ago . . .



Sadly, the reality is that Kansas City now stands at a 5 year murder high for this calendar date.

When you find your lost credibility, post about that. It'll be big news in Niggertown.

7:55 we all know your ole lady beats your ass every night prior to making you cleaning the house before going to bed, but thats no reason to come on here giving others some of your hate you suffer from your miserable life.

Agree that the star doesn't count. They are no longer relevant to many discussion, the crime rate is just one.

Kansas City Star jumped the shark on this one.

For a while the Star had regular editorials with the latest data on murders.
But that was before their tax abatement extension was approved and they became little more than a PR rag for Sly and the gang.
Now there's regular hype over NoVa, Mothers in Charge, Aim4Peace, and all the other assorted unaccountable ineffective nonprofits and programs, but never is heard a discouraging word about the utter lack of results.
KCMO is well on its way to 100 homicides in 2016.
A make-believe city with a pitiful newspaper that has a total of TWO people on its editorial board.
World class!

The Star knows which side their bread is butter on. They have a perpetual dick sucking contract with the Mayor and City Hall.

Really nothing to count about. If you have coons you have murderers. That simple.

yeah, we flip pages mostly, meaning reading few articles and no advertising. advertisers are and should go for digital media, especially search-related.

by the way, why doesn't this blog have advertising?

It does. It advertises queers, trannys, blacks, comedy clubs, nutball activists and left wing politicians. You won't see much truth in advertising, but it serves as a magnet for a certain element that Tony apparently likes.
