HOOPZ, WE HARDLY KNEW YE!!! TKC BLOG COMMUNITY TOP READER COMMENT REAX AFTER JENEÉ OSTERHELDT ANNOUNCES KANSAS CITY STAR DEPARTURE!!!
Our KICK-ASS blog community was FIRST to discuss the implications of a social justice warrior calling it quits at Kansas City's last remaining daily newspaper and here's what we notice . . .
OVERALL KANSAS CITY NEWS READERS SEEM TO DISLIKE THE OPINIONS OFFERED BY HOOPZ AND CELEBRATE HER EXIT!!!
It wasn't even close.
In her swan song column, Jeneé Osterheldt blames racism, of course, for the local distaste for her musings.
To be fair, we didn't include a lot of the more obvious hateration in responses to her leaving this town. And so instead of featuring the bloviating of former journalists who haven't had a real job within the industry for years, it makes sense that some of the most avid news readers in Kansas City deserve the LAST WORD when it comes to Hoopz.
Here are the highlights . . .
A Harbinger For Hoopz???
"Good riddance, she really is terrible at this job, Boston will crucify her and when they do she will come crawling back just like she did before, unfortunately we probably haven’t seen the last of her . . ."
This Cowtown Is Actually Rather Nice
"She'll find that even Boston isn't mindlessly liberal enough to buy into her one-sided take on issues and folks in the east coast big town have never heard of 'Kansas City nice'."
Debate Without Dislike
"I'm glad she's leaving because I don't think she's a good writer or a positive influence at the Star because she only causes division, not love. However, I have been friends with her for many years and she is incredibly nice and I like her as a person. I know this sounds contradictory but we just have different viewpoints."
The Big Picture
"No it wasn't time for her to move on, she had to move on because she knew her head was about to be placed on the chopping block. You can't own a newspaper and not come to the conclusion Jenee was killing the paper and running off the readers with money. Mary needs to be next . . ."
Remember The Newspaper Want Ads???
"KCStar Help Wanted Columnist -- Do you have absolutely no talent or skill? Do You hate white people? Has a major newspaper run you off? If so, The Kansas City Star can use a columnist as worthless as you, please apply!"
You decide . . .
