KANSAS CITY STAR SUNDAY FRONT PAGE STORY TOUTS TIMELY TWITTER SEXUAL ASSAULT TESTIMONY AGAINST TRUMP!!!
Like it or not, the Sunday front page of the Kansas City Star doesn't really have the same impact that it once did.
Still, this is probably the most widely-read feature of the paper and while gassing up at QT, the usual pile of untouched dead tree media contents in the bin elicited an e-mail note and this message . . .
"Try and look at the Star today. They're publishing Hillary Clinton talking points as front page news now . . ."
The story in question . . .
Silenced no more: Local women say now is the time to speak about sexual assault
Why is now the time for this online testimony and for the newspaper to admit that they rely on social media for their "reporting" nowadays???
Maybe this headline offers a bit of explanation . . .
Sexual assault and the Trump tape: 1 million women say it's #notokay
The online sensation is part of the same meme the Star front page "reports" today and plays directly into the Hillary Clinton talking points against Trump and his litany of controversial comments directed at women.
The timing is also pretty good for one of his many accusers according to this report:
Daily Mail: Porn star Jessica Drake 'launched official online sex store' a day before accusing Donald Trump of offering her $10,000 to spend the night with him
What's more important that partisan slap fighting . . .
Locals now have a look at the Star, CLEARLY, using their front page news section to support their editorial endorsement of Hillary Clinton as objectivity becomes a myth in Kansas City and local "journalism" is a bad joke given that most reporters are now nothing more than glorified bloggers.
You decide . . .
