KANSAS CITY STAR STAYS LOSING HOOPZ!!! PROGRESSIVE PUNDIT JENEÉ OSTERHELDT LEAVING FOR BOSTON GLOBE!!!
There's a write-up in the newspaper today but nobody reads that dead-tree garbage so instead we'll go with a much more important Twitter mention:
Washington Bureau Chief at The Boston Globe Christopher Rowland recently sent his congratulations to Hoopz on her new gig and the local pundit accepted his online kindness . . .
A few topics of consideration . . .
- Will Hoopz suffer the "Superman" effect on the East Coast - In KCMO she's a trendsetter but there are plenty of "progressives" in Boston and her typical DNC & social justice talking points might not seem so provocative.
- Still, she was one of the few interesting pundits for The Star if only because her train wreck columns inspired so much ire in partisans from the other side of the aisle.
- Given increased layoffs at The Kansas City Star - Are we now watching workers abandoning the sinking ship???
Of course, we talked this topic FIRST over the weekend and now we offer newshounds a second look at how the discourse is taking shape amid the decline of newspapers.
Kansas City, I love you, but it's time for me to move on
You decide . . .
