Dead-Tree Media Tariff Help Via Sen. McCaskill

A look at the leading Democratic Party lady in Missouri helping print media stay afloat and possibly winning some more brownie points amid already far too kind coverage. Checkit:

McCaskill opposes newsprint tariffs that are driving up newspaper costs

U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) is backing a bipartisan push led by U.S. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) to halt excessive taxes on paper imports that are critical to Missouri's newspaper and printing industries.

What McCaskill is opposing should surprise no one as the newspapers generally support the progressive cause thus supporting her.

^^Really? Tariffs are stupid. Sounds like she is making sense here. Your partisan ignorance prevents you from thinking logically and using common sense. Thus rendering your opinion worthless.

8:15 is a transgendered leech, attempting to suck the lifeblood from his mental superiors.

The 8:06 comment stated a totally logical conclusion. Corporate print media in Missouri (and elsewhere) like The Kansas City Star is completely in the pocket of the Democratic Party, thus McCaskill(D) is supporting herself by helping the industry keep their costs low.

8:15 FAILS MASSIVELY!!

9:43 - You ever taken an economics class? Nevermind, I know the answer, you maxed out in high school. Learning, you should try it.

10:00 Nothing to say for yourself, just have to make comments about others thoughts; just say your thoughts and leave others thoughts to themselves. I agree that newspapers generally support the progressive left; and I can say that without having to demean someone else. If you are the same as 8:15, then my thoughts go doubly for you.

^^Please stop. You're not good at this. You can't hold two competing thoughts in your head. Who cares what you agree with? You can't think logically and when you can't provide a logical defense of your position, you call names like 9:43, which renders all of your faulty premises irrelevant. Think for yourself.

To Little to Late, The Star will have to get its advertiser back and it's audience THE Star has vary little influence on politics Because they lost most of there readership. Writing articles for only a few to read.

Originally I was against the tariffs. With this bit of new information about its effect on the Star, I will have to rethink.

^^Good do that. Take an econ class too, and get back to us on how tariffs have done throughout the world over the course of time. Those of us with an education already know, and anxiously await with baited breath your conclusions.

Note to Robert Mueller: Check Claire for connections to the Russian newsprint suppliers. I also think she has stock in McClatchy, which in itself should be a crime.

It was a thing that catered to geriatrics, but they all claimed to hate it and not read it, and like all geriatrics, it got old and died.
