Kansas City Late Night Power Rankings!!!



For the denizens of our news junkie community with the strongest addiction to local current events, check this quick list of locals who STAYED WINNING this week for both better and worse . . .

Kansas Gov. Brownback Sent Dead Tree Media Into Airport Fake News Tailspin


A well-timed distraction helped the Kansas City Dead Tree Media focus on imaginary and faraway plans rather than the current Sunflower State Budget slap fight.

A Police Board debate was mostly political theater but might also signal that Mayor Sly is willing to cut the KCPD Chief loose given the declining popularity of BOTH public officials.

This week's lesson in urban gentrification comes from a quickly rushed through plan that will displace more than a few urban core residents as a local institution overbuilds.

Pitch Stays Feisty Despite Cutbacks And New Monthly Publishing Schedule


The Pitch is becoming more of a magazine and not a newspaper . . . Problem is, not a lot of people will notice either way.

And so, even after this week of love afterglow . . . We still have a fondness for this cowtown despite or maybe because of its many faults . . .



As always, this list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people.

Trump deserves a mention for the way he slapped down the media at his press conference. Showing us all how it's done and who is REALLY in charge!

Love the Pitch and I hope they can stay afloat. We need them now more than ever now that the falling Star is working for Sly.

Putin hacked Hillary's charisma!! And hacked the Chiefs during the playoffs!

Chuck Todd, what an imbecile. Caught taking instructions straight from the DNC, and he dares to stand on the demolished credibility of legacy media?

Trump didn't "smack down" the media (they called him on his lies), he merely demonstrated that he is unfit to be President.

How can you watch that news conference & not cringe?

He has an eighth grade education.

The only reason Forte is chief is to amass personal wealth. The amount of money he will receive for accumulated vacation and comp time will be staggering. The media needs to look into this now!

Hey Byron Funkhouser.... Trump did in fact smack down the media, Trump hates the media and whether you or they think he is lying is a matter of opinion. Trump was called down on one thing that was trivial and he accepted it.

He has more than an eighth grade education, so it looks like you are the one lying.

"Kansas City University Ready To Demolish Historic Northeast." Histrionics aside, KCU wants to tear down some old, unoccupied and largely unoccupiable buildings and put something newer and nicer in their place. Sounds like a good deal to me.

Man Funkenshyster, that Alzheimers must be a bitch when it comes to hallucinations.

The only reason the apartment buildings are unoccupied is because the university insisted they be vacant before the purchase took place. They are in excellent shape and could be reused easily. The notion that they are rotting was created by KCU.. not by reality. KCU is NOT a good neighbor anymore.
