KANSAS CITY STAR PROF KRASKE DOUBLES DOWN ON FAKE NEWS PROMOTING JOLIE JUSTUS FOR MAYOR!!!
The latest propaganda from Kansas City's fading daily newspaper doubles down on a sketchy premise that has already been disproven.
At the outset of the election, columnist and jr. UMKC professor Steve Kraske claimed that Jolie Justus had the mayoral election locked up. AND THEN she quickly dropped out when Jason Kander stepped in for a hot second. Sadly, Kander stepped right out after a few weeks because of medical and personal issues.
Now, Kraske comes to a familiar conclusion in his latest work:
Kansas City Star: The KC Mayoral Power Rankings 3.0: As the campaign shifts into gear, who’s leading the pack?
(Brief aside, notice the headline touts "power rankings" which is a hallmark of our TKC blog community and a sign that this penny stock corporation is running scared from our loose collection of cantankerous local miscreants that now has just as much influence over the 12th & Oak conversation as the handful of pundits pushing dead trees on the voting public.)
More importantly . . . Over the course of the election we've shared a peek at polling data, endorsement switcheroos and insider arguments. Sadly, Kraske's work is mostly based on his often incorrect assumptions and talking points from team Jolie.
And so, yet again Kraske sides with Council Lady Jolie Justus despite the fact that her campaign is faltering, she's barely 3rd in fundraising overall and very few people outside of midtown or progressive cliques know anything about her. The hack screed isn't even opinion journalism, it's promotion and hype.
But again, the tragic part of this is that voters and political denizens aren't allowed their say on the topic or an alternative perspective . . .
And so we put it to you d-bags . . .
IS JOLIE JUSTUS REALLY THE FRONT RUNNER FOR KANSAS CITY MAYOR?!?!
You decide . . .
