KANSAS CITY REJECTS FAKE NEWS CLAIMING INDEPENDENCE AND PROSPECT IS ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS INTERSECTIONS IN THE NATION!!!
An online hit piece listing the intersection of Independence and Prospect as one of the most dangerous intersections in the nation is now the target of push back from social media denizens across Kansas City proper.
Even better . . .
Northeast News took apart the report in EPIC fashion along with chiding local MSM follow-up in a recent editorial calling out the "hack job" article.
Money line . . .
"Rather than interview neighborhood people working hard to turn the Avenue around, or even the CID Ambassadors whose office is a scant half-block away, LOCAL JOURNALISTS went for the low-hanging fruit to round out their hack in the greatest of fashion."
To be fair, the intersection isn't a place to go wandering around naked with 20 bucks taped to your forehead in the middle of the night . . . But the same can be said of Overland Park.
Nevertheless, when we talk about the so-called power of "fake news" what we've seen in this instance is locals with real understanding on the subject sharing their knowledge and correcting an overly negative depiction of an area that has its challenges but is nowhere near as bad as online clickbait portrays.
You decide . . .
