HEARNE EXCLUSIVE!!! 20 KANSAS CITY STAR NEWSIES TO BE FIRED!!! HA HA HA!!!



KC Confidential is reporting that there are going to be 20 more new room folks fired from The Star!!!

AND HERE'S HOPING THE MIKE HENDRICKS IS SOON TO THROWN OUT ON THE HARD STREETS OF JOCO ON HIS FACE!!!

Seriously, for all of the years The Star has kicked around or outright ignored minority communities or anybody they disagreed with . . . They deserve the slow, painful professional/career bloodletting that's going on right now . . . Let's never forget that The Star daily print monopoly gave us Co-Mayor Funky and Squitiro. Star staffers have this stupid line about how it's McClatchy and corporate debt that's killing them . . .

BUT THE FACT IS THAT PUBLISHING PAPER NEWS (History) IS A THING OF THE PAST!!!

The sad thing is there's no profit in the advertising model to support a major news organization either . . . But that's a story for another time . . .

20 MORE NEWSIES GONE FROM THE STAR!!! GOOD RIDDANCE!!! IT'S NOT LIKE KANSAS CITY IS GOING TO MISS MORE HISTORY DISGUISED AS NEWS ON DEAD TREES ANYWAY!!!

Best part in all this . . . If Hearne's wrong, I get to make fun of him unmerciful and take him apart . . . If he's right then, obviously I'm happy . . . And KC Confidential just posted this but I've taken the "news" and just gave it the TKC finishing touches . . . So, Clearly . . . TKC and all indy bloggers stay winning . . . And . . .

THE BUSINESS OF SELLING CONTENT IS OVER!!!

Sorry.

LONG LIVE KANSAS CITY BLOGS!!!!

Or something.

  4. Yeah, the Star sucks. They never even wrote about how Gloria has a picture of her tarty daughter's boyfriend's naked erect cock stored on her cell phone and flashes it around to any poor person who happens to cross her path. She's probably on the 29th floor forcing staff members to look at it right now. Proud mama! "Look at the cock that's banging my little baby!"

  8. TKC winning? How, exactly? Getting rich off the site, are you? We all lose when the Star's news effort is degraded...

  9. I noticed that the number of pictures of staffers in the latest issue of Ink was almost half what it normally is this week.

  10. I wouldn't infer too much from that-they'll keep a staffer on their roster long after they're dead.

  11. Kansas City hasn't had a decent newspaper since the death of Colonel Van Horn. True journalism in KC died with that man (until TKC came along).

  12. You get what you pay for with free information. Eventually, all we'll have is the shit coming from losers like you.
    Be happy that those mental disability checks keep coming so that you don't have to work for living, asshole.

  13. I did not think they had any newsies working down there anymore. The paper reads like the by-product of trained parrots.

  14. -by-product of trained parrots-

    That is complete BS. Parrots can't type. At least not well.

  15. Without the paper you will lose a great watchdog on local government, especially when you want to go beyond the rumor mill and spend some resources pouring through records or fighting for successful open records requests in court. No maybe the Star hadn't done anything like that in a while, but what other resource even has the potential? Let's face it TV doesn't have the time to do more than a sound bite. Radio's success is with commentary (talk radio) not investigative reporting. Bloggers, while great with the tips and immediacy, are largely individuals without resources to do the type of reporting I am talking about. Yes you will get it still at the national level without the Star but not on local stuff, especially in the burbs.

  16. when the star folds there goes 75% of your daily links dumbass. sometimes you come off as a petulant fucking child.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Subscribe to the New York Times if you like print since they deliver daily by the same delivery contractors who deliver the Star. And then read what little content the Star offers online. KC Star is dying a quick death due to their own mismanagement and cavalier opinion on how they think they are.

    And KSHB TV always refers to "their reporting partners at the Kansas City Star" when it should be the other way around now that DeAnn Smith is at KSHB.

  18. Oooooo. that's cold.

  19. "Be happy that those mental disability checks keep coming so that you don't have to work for living, asshole."


    LOL! Of course. It all makes perfect sense now. Tony actually gets checks as a result of his mental disability. He can't live on his own, though, so his mom takes care of him, cashes his checks and makes sure the money doesn't all get spent on porn and Twinkies ... and, thus, Tony is able to avoid being institutionalized.

  20. I buy all of my snack cakes on my own, thank you. As for being mental, that's tough anony. Not based in fact at all but I hope you're confident it's not going to come back on you.

    Now go worry about one all night.

    Ah, so I've hit a nerve, have I? Hate to pick on you for your condition -- bipolar is it? -- but no one better deserves being picked on than tkc, for he is as mean and nasty as they come.

  24. Yeah, I'm all choked up about you fantasizing about me. I'll be crying myself to sleep tonight.

    Please keep complaining and making up shit on the Internet. It helps my cause.

    It is not illegal to make shit up on the Internet.

  26. True dat.

  27. Isn't that like Tony's motto.

    Blogs suck. Let's hope newspapers get a new profit model.
