TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY CONSERVATIVE MONTHLY NEWSPAPER "THE CITIZEN" STARTS PUBLICATION THIS WEEK!!!
Kansas City Conservatives and Centre-right politicos are soon to get their own dead tree media news source.
THANKS TO AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS WE KNOW THAT "THE CITIZEN" IS GOING TO START PUBLISHING NEXT WEEK!!!
The print aspect of the new venture is interesting and makes the organization stand out a bit among all the local websites that come and go.
The name of the paper is kind of hokey but it at least offers a good preview as to their tone. Check their website at kc.citizen-publications.com. The site should go live the evening of 1/31; right now the publication is simply using a placeholder.
The group has been making waves online and they have a facebook group of a little more than 350.
In their own words, here's how the paper describes itself along with a full front page preview after the jump:
The Citizen provides news, opinion and a voice for readers committed to liberty and freedom.
* We are a much-needed balance to the regional media landscape and a provocateur. We are not passive — nor should you be.
* We think for ourselves and understand that independence carries responsibility — to help create a more educated, more active civic conversation. We want our readers to read, to learn, and, ultimately, to act.
* Finally, we report using all the facts available, but we don’t stop there. We intend to motivate our readers and our elected officials to action. We are in this to change things.
So, what is The Citizen?
We're a new monthly newspaper for the Kansas City metro area. We're planning our first issue in February, but you can have a peek right now.
Are we biased? Yes -- just like every other newspaper and magazine. Are we different? Yes -- because we're not afraid to admit that things like a love of freedom and a belief in personal responsibility matter, and they inform what we choose to cover.
We'll be free to readers and ad-supported
