TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! CORRUPT KANSAS CITY STAR WILL ENDORSE JOLIE JUSTUS FOR MAYOR!!!
Tonight we share FIRST word from directly inside the newsroom of a fading local institution struggling to remain relevant despite declining subscriptions and faltering ad sales.
Here's the story . . .
THE KANSAS CITY STAR WILL ENDORSE COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS FOR MAYOR IN THE 2019 PRIMARY!!!
Two reasons we need to put this on blast as a bit of service journalism that better informs our local Democracy:
1 - Watch newspaper coverage of the contest. It's slanted in the favor of Council Lady Jolie and pushes their pick above everybody else.
Dos - Right now it's unclear if Council Lady Justus can make the primary as her airport deal is quickly falling apart and she'll be forced to makes some unpopular decisions very soon to keep the deal alive. Newspaper help is a must if she plans on getting any name recognition outside of Midtown.
Mayoral candidates are still fighting over the second endorsement that The Star is likely to offer. However, this time around they seem to be gearing toward keeping an African-American candidate out of the primary like most of the local developer-focused establishment.
Meanwhile, smart candidate would be better off making their play on TV news and the Internets given the increasingly limited and narrow reach of the newspaper.
