FEAR KANSAS CITY MAINSTREAM MEDIA FEEDING FRENZY OVER DISGUSTING SNUFF FOOTAGE FEATURING YOUNGSTER TORTURED, KILLED AND FED TO PIGS!!!



Over the past 72 hours the mainstream media has been recycling a tragic story with mostly sloppy sentimental coverage.

Actually, Friday news emerged about tragic video of the gruesome tale of youngster death and torture and since then the tale has taken on the "true crime" angle that middle-class people seem to enjoy amid their lives of quiet discontent.

While the coverage is gross and tough to witness,  THIS is the best telling of that story that was front page news yesterday if all of those discarded stacks at the QT can be trusted . . .

Adrian Jones is remembered as the KCK boy who was badly-abused and murdered by his parents. This is the part of his story we haven't seen.

Rather than get caught up in saccharine emotive displays that always dominate this kind of coverage or reblog the snuff clips. Here's a more accurate look at the parent and step parent who have pleaded guilty to charges:



Now . . .

OTHER THAN THE MACABRE RECOUNTING OF LOCAL HUMAN MISERY AND CELEBRATING THE SHOCK FACTOR . . . THIS KIND OF "JOURNALISM" HAS VERY LITTLE IMPACT ON THE LIVES OF KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS AND IT'S PART OF THE DISGUSTING REASON MOST PEOPLE ARE TURNING AWAY FROM LEGACY MEDIA!!!

The story has been dressed up and repackaged nicely with suits and "journalists" beating their chests and gnashing their teeth in agony but at the end of the day, when we talk about serving the public trust . . . This story is about as important as your drunk uncle posting those videos of people getting their heads chopped off in order to justify his vote for Prez Trump or whatever.

There might be a line or two about child protective services or where to report suspected abuse . . . But what the shock footage, snuff footage serves mostly as a distraction for locals who are the victims of public officials looting the tax base at the behest of developers, sketchy transit schemes conducted by way of corrupt voting and even more murder and gunfire on local streets that's mostly ignored or given cursory coverage at best.



To be sure the fate of this youngster is horrific, sad and has the potential to open the eyes of locals to cruelty that abounds in the Kansas City area but more likely this kind of coverage is SIMPLY PART OF THE FADING MAINSTREAM MEDIA CIRCUS that more people are tuning out in favor of far more engaging and reassuring content in social media feeds and our TKC blog community merely considers as historical footnote whilst the culture moves to curating their own news.

You decide . . .

I think you should look at this as some progress.

KMBC broke this story and the star needed 48 hours to catch up with their take on it. Now the other TV stations are jumping on board.

It might not be important but the circus is the only way to generate eyeballs for advertisers. And the last hope that news stations have to avoid the fate of newspapers.

most news stations are being very careful in how they share this stuff. Some of the coverage is very borderline in terms of practices and standards.

Agree that 41 did the best job with it. Channel 9 didn't want to show much and that was the right decision. KSHB might have crossed the line a bit but did a good job with conveying the facts while not over-writing the story like the newspaper, reading what the Star had, I felt like most people just looked at the pictures and then skipped the article altogether.

@12:55 reads TKC in the middle of the night and then says it doesn't matter. Most people would just admit that they're fans. It would be easier on their psyche.
