Kansas City Journalism Conversation This Week: Newsies Know Better Than You?!?!



Take a look at local opinion makers talking about recent events in a manner more more formal than so many social media posts which have already covered these topics . . .

DO THESE KANSAS CITY NEWSIES KNOW BETTER THAN YOU???

Check the description:

"Nick Haines, Eric Wesson, Dave Helling, Steve Kraske & Mark Alford discuss the divided council vote on the Edgemoor MOU and what's next in the process, Kansas luring HCA Midwest across state line, efforts to create qualification standards for KS governor, a proposed filing fee for MO initiative petitions, Syed Jamal's immigration battle, Trump's military parade & area education leadership changes."

Take a look:



You decide . . .

It seems like Mark Alford is the only guest who represents anything close to a mainstream opinion here. Not any true conservatives on the panel and that's just a bit troubling because these are the senior reporters and columnists in Kansas City.

I thought Steve Kraske retired. Why is he still on the show? Is UMKC a sponsor now?

Actually, UMKC does have a very cozy relationship with KCPT but that's probably not the reason for the columnist's appearance. He's pretty much the voice for the leftists and the Sly James administration in KC now that Yael is in Africa.

A good conversation but 2/4 seem to be out of their depth or working for somebody else when it comes to the airport disaster in the making.

Mark Alford is the voice of reason.

Who knew this crap was still on the air? And an even smaller demographic, Who cared?

I wish KCUR would think about doing a weekly panel like this or one of the TV stations. I think the guests would be more interesting. They used to have Soren Petro on this show too, he was pretty good.

Who knows what they really know, or when they knew it?

They lie when it serves their purposes.

Yeah, like "Eric" is going to splain why the Applebee's got closed. Another victim of the wonderful African-Americans...

Mark Alford is only raising his public profile to freely advertise his podcast.

Helling slammed the police. He obviously doesn't live in my neighborhood with its NIGHTLY gunfire.

My favorite part was when Alford referred to the other panelists as numbskulls! Great quip!
