Kraske Writes Kansas City Star Farewell Note

Check the swan song for this Kansas City pundit who will now dominate "public" radio for a pittance along with the rest of his old school colleagues who dominate the progressive discourse and mostly forbid any new voices or disagreement with their worldview.

Anyhoo . . . This late night note is about as much attention as the end of a newspaper career deserves given that much better journalists didn't get to pen a love letter to their political buddies.

Better days are here, you no longer write for the red star! And soon it will be gone too!

If only it were a farewell note to the city because he was moving away.

Riding off into the sunset to try to find more of those terrible Confederate statues!
And renaming historic parts of the metro because people involved in the 1950's were "racists".
Kraske's a one-trick pony and he'll find the Star's very predictable narrative has gotten very old to most metro residents.
Which is a major reason the Star is certainly not long for this world.
He'll need to find another mob to run to the front of so that he can "lead".

I hate to say racism is back bigger and bolder than it every was in the 50's and 60's it's just portrayed in a different way these days to keep from getting in trouble. The Star is a huge instigator in today's racism and division.

More than a few people will be smiling when the KC Star finally closes its doors. In the meantime, it's good to see self-righteous, liberal, ideologues like Kraske put out to pasture.

Have fun on the radio station nobody listens to

Such a vile diatribe, wishing death on someone’s children crosses the line for free speech .

MEMORIES OF STEVE KRASKE?

I remember when Kraske was pushing hard for Jason Kander to be our next Mayor. He actually compared Kander to the young John F. Kennedy! I laughed so hard that day.

A long time ago, Kraske dropped any pretense of being a neutral arbiter of political information, and transitioned into a blatant proponent of Liberal Democrat policies.

A good journalist, if they're not extinct, rarely discloses any hint as to their own political bias. Which brings me back to the Star Editorial Board. Yes, they're penning editorials, but when everyone on the team plays in Left field, the game itself becomes a charade.

Serious question: How is the star making money these days? i'm not being funny, but legitimately asking. Their subscriber numbers have to be hovering around 10,000 and no one buys classifieds or takes out ads anymore

Consider the possibility that they're being purposely subsidized as a propaganda tool. Think it's implausible?

Do you think the NYTimes, WaPo, CNN, network TV news, etc., make money on their own? Enough to sustain a profitable ongoing business?

They're not. Used to own seven buildings downtown now they lease one.

Craigslist killed them.

Sad to see it go. Can still read evening star and KC Times archived at news bank database accessible via kck public library (and I'm sure KCMO too ... )

There's a good reason why a 'Kraske' is slang for a blowjob among newsies. For his good work doing empty puff pieces about our city's corruption and incompetence, give that man a chapstick.
