TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! DISGRACE!!! KANSAS CITY MEDIA DOWNPLAY REPORTS OF RACIAL SLURS AMID DEADLY OLATHE TRIPLE SHOOTING!!!
Once again Kansas City media is keeping the public stupid about the reality of a deadly tragedy.
To wit . . .
INTERNATIONAL NEWS REPORTS AN OLATHE GUNMAN YELLING RACIAL SLURS AMID HIS DEADLY ATTACK WHILST KANSAS CITY MEDIA DOWNPLAYS HORRIFYING DEETS!!!
The nature of the arrest itself is raising questions with local anti-crime activist Alonzo Washington . . .
Additionally, many in our blog community lament the fact that a triple shooting in JoCo earns international coverage and preempted programing while the same kind of event in the urban core is typically ignored.
Quote from one of our better readers . . .
"I understand that a triple shooting with a suspect at large is generally a big deal but the local media is freaking out about this one from Olathe tonight. News helicopters and breaking into network programming would never happen for a triple shooting on the east side of KC. Channel 41 even did an alert tone during Law and Order and put a breaking news scroller on the bottom of the screen for an hour.
"As I said, the disparity shown on this story compared to others that happen and have happened in the inner city is ridiculous."
And now, right now TKC is the only Kansas City based news-ish outlet bringing LOCAL news readers the REALITY of the deadly situation made even worse by hate-filled words.
