THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! AMID JUSTIFIED COMPLAINTS OF OLD SCHOOL NEWS LADIES: RESPECT THE EXCELLENCE OF KANSAS CITY NEWS LEGEND PHIL WITT!!!



Tonight we ask our blog community to consider a somewhat complex series of propositions in the ongoing fight to balance the struggle for social justice with well-deserved appreciation for outstanding achievement in Kansas City and across the globe.

Here we go:

- Yes, old school news women have it tough. Karen Fuller was done wrong when she was dismissed in her still supple 40s.

- Yes, old school dudes dominate the news anchor spot while women are often unfairly pushed out of the journalism game . . .

- However, none of these two factors make the accomplishments of KANSAS CITY NEWS LEGEND PHIL WITT any less respectable and as he heads into retirement he has held up better than MOST WOMEN AND MEN his age.

For God's sake, look at the man . . .



He has barely aged over the course of his KC news career which has spanned generations. He still maintains movie star good looks, a keen intellect AND he looks like he does about 500 push-ups a day.

The reality is that most millennials skulking around the Crossroads don't look like they're in as good of condition as Phil Witt.

TKC Confession: I'm a Phil Witt fanboy and I've been watching him since I've been a kid. Yes, I do have his autograph somewhere around this basement.

But I digress . . .

In the discussion as we lament the plight of news ladies kicked out the door far too early, social justice warriors neglect the fact that the career of Phil Witt is a modern day testament to the power of clean living, absolute professionalism and dedication to journalistic standards. The uncomfortable but accurate reality is that Mr. Witt is both genetically and intellectually gifted in addition to his tireless work ethic which has helped him OPERATE AT A LEVEL BEYOND MOST PEOPLE OF EVERY DEMOGRAPHIC WALKING AROUND THE PLANET.

Add all of this to the fact that we've heard from just about everybody that Phil Witt is also a really good person, helpful, kind and everything that people don't expect from most journalists.

And so tonight's playlist is dedicated to the uncomfortable fact that some people are simply born with talent, aptitude and amazing potential  and then work diligently to cultivate their skills and create a professional standard with their careers . . . Meanwhile, most of us lesser beings just sit around and complain on the Internets.



As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.

Karen Fuller would still be a good fuck and I bet she still has a hot little cunt.

When a woman is fired from her job, she need only cry "gender discrimination" and is instantly absolved of all failure and wrongdoing. There is a word for that...that word is "privilege".

Hopefully the KCTV5 pension won't vanish overnight a few years down the pike.

I know where he lives. At least back in the early 90s. I'm sure he still lives there today. My uncle had the contract on a lot of work on his brand new home back then. I worked for my uncle. I met Phil once. My uncle had to talk to him a lot , said he was a dick head. IDK we got paid. Let me you wdaf must have appreciated Phil because that dude had to been knocking down some serious chips to live in that home in that neighborhood. I always thought he was too plain looking. Like you needed a mustache or goatee or beard or something. Always thought he was Goofy acting too. Tony I don't get your bromance with this guy but of course I'm not gay like you so I wouldn't get it. Peace out ,T peace out Phil. No Tony. No push ups. No ungodly unreal Alex Gordon workouts. Just a normal dude who happens to wear a lot of makeup and probably eats right.

Harris Faulkner would have been a good fuck too, if you like skanky black pussy.

Had forgotten how cute Phil was when he was young. As for now, yes, older, but still distinguished looking.

Lets get real here. In broadcasting the game is to get as many people watching your station as possible. The ratings compiled from viewership translates into the rates stations can charge for spots. It also determines how many jobs and how much payroll a station can provide.

Decades ago stations figured out that if you put a young, good looking babe next to a middle aged man on a news cast ratings tended to move up. Nevermind the fact that you never hear one of these twenty something unqualified bimbos bitching when they pick up their paycheck, they have to know that they are on the tube because they are aesthetically pleasing. If you have any doubts that it is all about the beef just look at Fox VS CNN, MSNBC or a pack of old broads on the network news. Fact is Fox beans their vaginais into the dirt with a constant stream of hot young chicks. Granted they can barely read a prompter, but I'll take a hot stuggling babe over the likes of Martha Raddatz or Christiane Amanpour. Fact is so will the American viewing public.

The problem with Fuller is she was less than energetic, was not a slim hot babe, had little eye appeal and she was not getting any younger. Guess what people? Hollywood actresses often do not get work because they have lost the edge too. Is it discriminatory not to hire them? Perhaps, but who's money is it anyway. Should an employer be forced to "carry" a pack of old broads for decades when those same broads got into the business shaking their arses and knew damn well how the game works. Seriously do the twenty something bimbos honestly believe they are qualified to take the seat next to a male anchor who has decades of experience and a track record in journalism?

If Fuller wanted to excel in her job she would have been at the gym, working on her energy level and her looks and working on her on screen persona. If she is dumb enough to think broadcasting is all about qualified female journalists she needs to spend a little time switching channels and look at the babes sitting next to the old men. As stated, no one of these broads were turning down their paychecks twenty years ago because they thought the business was sexist.
