KANSAS CITY STAR DUMPS CLASSIC JOURNALISTS UNDER McCLATCHY BUYOUT THREAT AND DEAD-TREE DEMISE!!!
Starting with tribute to hottie Jenny McCarthy and her epic dead-tree media repose that's one of our all-time favorite ad game triumphs.
A ton of jobs are AT RISK . . . Tribune earns a SPIKE from the stock speculation.
And these local newsies are now out of the game if they can't get paltry freelance rates from public radio . . .
Many Well-Known Journalists Are Leaving The Kansas City Star
The drop list:
- Political columnist and editorial writer Steve Kraske
- Johnson County government and business development reporter Lynn Horsley
- Courts reporter Tony Rizzo
- Long-form reporter Rick Montgomery
- Social justice and crime reporter Joe Robertson
- Business reporter Mark Davis
- Metro reporter Matt Campbell
- Photographer John Sleezer
And so we ask . . .
WILL THE EPIC NEWS DUMP DESTROY KANSAS CITY JOURNALISM OR IS DEAD-TREE DEMISE SIMPLY A FACT OF LIFE?!?!
You decide . . .
