TKC SUNDAY QUESTION: DID KMBC PREZ SARAH SMITH PUSH NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT QUESTION #1 OVER THE TOP WITH FAKE NEWS ENDORSEMENT?!?!
Like it or not, Kansas City mainstream media TV news support of #NewKCI could be the deciding factor for the upcoming airport vote.
Here's a glimpse of corporate media new airport hype that that's has more influence and will garner more attention than any writing on the topic.
Take a look:
KMBC Prez Sarah Smith: "A yes vote will set our city up for a brighter future, with no cost to taxpayers. None. The new airport terminal would be paid for by the airlines and fees from the people using it. Most of those fees would be paid by people living outside our area.
"It's too expensive to renovate the existing airport. We need a new one, built for the future. Vote yes on ballot Question No. 1 on Nov. 7. Let's live up to our motto that everything is up to date in Kansas City."
Allow us a quick retort . . .
THE KMBC EDITORIAL IS FAKE NEWS BECAUSE IT'S BASED SOLELY ON THROWAWAY CAMPAIGN LIT PROMISES PRODUCED BY OUT-OF-TOWN POLITICAL CONSULTANTS!!!
For an alternative perspective, check Citizens For Responsible Government KC and their Myth-busting series on Facebook.
But here's the question . . .
HOW MUCH INFLUENCE WILL THIS TV NEWS ENDORSEMENT HAVE OVER THE KMBC AUDIENCE???
More than any other TV station, their viewership is regional and might not cast a ballot on Nov. 7th. However, the mainstream pitch for this vote is clearly gaining momentum while opponents of the effort are still mostly comprised of grassroots resistance.
