Kansas City Star Real Estate Adieu

Navel gazing from the newspaper . . . Here's a somewhat worthwhile note of more, inevitable dead-tree media decline:

The Kansas City Star is changing headquarters, but the mission stays the same

A new deadline was established last week at The Kansas City Star, and it's unlike the ones that reporters and editors have been diligently meeting for decades. The elegant red brick building at 1729 Grand Blvd. - The Star's home for 106 years - has been sold.

Since pursuing their "mission" has been a major part of them having to leave their long-time building, you'd think maybe they'd take another look at what they're doing and how they're doing it.
Who, exactly, is their readership base?
But take a look at the editorial board roster and the average age of the "reporters" who are sent out in the field.
Sunday's paper will take 30 minutes max to read and will consist of a couple features of minimal interest and Monday's paper will be about eight pages long.
The Star's mission for quite some time has been basic survival and it's not going well.

Lies, Propaganda, and Videos

Mission remains the same.

Used to take Star and Times. But liberal/progressive slant became so blatant, finally dropped subscription. Jerry Heaster was last conservative columnist that I recall. Couldn't stomach "Do Good" and his ilk. (Diuguid) Fond memories of me and my dad scrambling to get the Sunday crossword first.

Isn't the old location on the National Registry of Historical Places? Isn't it the first home of WDAF? Let's not forget the "real" history of 18 & Grand.

How can you say the Kansas City Star is a "Liberal" newspaper?

How much more non-factual can they be in their support of Conservatives?

When is the last time you read a KC Star story that started with...

"Leaving a trail of Slime wherever he went, President Trump today..."?
