TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY STAR WARNED TO BACK OFF MIKE SANDERS INVESTIGATION AS EDITORIAL BOARD NOW CAUTIOUSLY DEFERS 'ALLEGED KICKBACK SCHEME' TO AUTHORITIES!!!
The Kansas City Star is now noticeably more cautious in how to they refer to an "alleged kickback scheme" and the connection they have made to former Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders.
INSIDERS ON TEAM MIKE TELL TKC: THE KANSAS CITY STAR HAS BEEN WARNED ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR SKETCHY INVESTIGATION!!! NOTICE THEIR CAREFULLY WORDED SUNDAY EDITORIAL ON THE TOPIC!!!
A quick look back, The Star seemed more confident about their deets last week . . .
Today, the local dead-tree media institution steps back a bit and uses the term "alleged" to describe their reporting . . .
Actually, today's newspaper screed doesn't really contribute much to the local discourse and instead wants law enforcement to pick up their crusade.
Even better . . .
TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! TEAM MIKE CLAIMS THE TWO YEAR OLD KANSAS CITY STAR STORY IS A 'NOTHING BURGER' AND WON'T HAVE MANY REAL CONSEQUENCES!!!
They say the law firm connections of Mike Sanders remain intact and that he's still the man in Sugar Creek - For whatever that's worth.
Even better, Team Mike is confident that one day they'll get that train to nowhere on the Rock Island Corridor built even if all they can achieve now is a low rent bike path along an abandoned swath of land.
And so we have a juxtaposition which we present to our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY who stand in judgement of all serious and very important matters of local journalism . . .
DO YOU TRUST THE KANSAS CITY STAR AND DUDE IN TAX TROUBLE OR THE REPUTATION OF MIKE SANDERS BEFORE HE LEFT THE COURTHOUSE LIKE A HOBO IN THE NIGHT???
This is a horrible choice either way and, just like real life, the absence of "good guys" in the local political discourse is why most people don't bother to vote.
