TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY BLOGGER DEMANDS RETRACTION AFTER BUSTING BIZ JOURNAL ON WAIT TIME FAKE NEWS!!!
Amid upcoming Kansas City "listening sessions" on the latest push for a new airport . . . There's a struggle to separate fact from fiction while so many competing interests attempt to persuade the voting public.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS KICK-ASS FACT CHECK FROM SAVE KCI WHICH NOT ONLY MYTH BUSTS BIZ JOURNAL COVERAGE BUT ALSO DEMANDS RETRACTION!!!
Remember that initial blogging last week took apart KC Biz Journal numbers . . .
Now even better . . .
Basically, Save KCI called out the sourcing of the KCI Biz Journal article regarding wait times, offered more reliable data and then put the numbers in perspective.
Here's the kicker . . .
An EPIC Save KCI quote:
"I’m respectfully asking for a retraction/correction, both online and in print, for anything that appeared in any Business Journal that listed KCI as having a 28.8 minute wait time. At minimum that would be the airport chart and subsequent editorial. Why? Because through what some might call journalistic malpractice, comically incorrect data has become part of the public discussion. I’ve been told that during a board meeting, the Executive Director of the Platte County EDC cited the 28.8 minute wait times as a reason to move forward with a single terminal. KCBJ bears responsibility for this and I hope their commitment to accuracy leads them to do the right thing and correct the record."
This is a TWO BILLION DOLLAR KANSAS CITY DECISION that has been presented to voters as an inevitability. And like it or not, bloggers and social media denizens have been driving the conversation and offering much better coverage on the topic than mainstream media.
You decide . . .
