TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CLAY CHASTAIN DENOUNCES FAKE NEWS FAVORITISM!!! LIBERAL MEDIA LOCKING 'CONSERVATIVE' TRANSIT ACTIVIST OUT OF CAMPAIGN?!?!
Here's the latest from Kansas City's most prolific petitioner and his "Conservative" take on local campaign coverage . . .
Chastain Campaign Claim: Liberal, biased and unfair local news media trying to lock conservative Clay out of mayor's race
Most of Kansas City's local liberal media outlets are playing favorites and locking out engineer and conservative-oriented candidate Clay Chastain out of the mayor's race.
One of the most liberal mayoral candidates, Quinton Lucas, who is incessantly pounding the over done "Racial justice" theme, gets a recent sit down interview with Channel 9's Michael Mahoney. But not candidate Clay Chastain. Even though Clay's name is also on the ballot, he cannot get an interview with any of the other liberal-leaning media outlets either.
Clay understands he is a conservative-oriented candidate running for mayor in a liberal-oriented City. And, that his anti-establishment candidacy rankles Kansas City's elite status quo leaders, but where is the journalistic justice in this town? Clay cares about Kansas City too. And, if you prick him will he not bleed?
The local 4th estate apparently does not want the voters to know where Clay stands on the issues or what his ideas are to prosper the city. In other words, there is little journalistic justice in Kansas City, just liberal media outlets with a liberal agenda. Let's highlight the other offenders:
#1. The Kansas City Star: The cagey Star actually did ask to interview Clay, but when Clay has interviewed with the Star in the past they have written stories like, "Why won't he just leave us alone?" and from the Star's editorial board, "He can't win." Is it any wonder why Clay no longer trusts the Kansas City Star.
#2. The Pitch: "Over the past few weeks we've been speaking with KC Mayoral candidates about how they'd use the office to approach the biggest challenges facing the City." But to date, the Pitch has not contacted mayoral candidate Clay for an interview. That degenerate publication is a disgrace to respectable, fair and balanced journalism.
#3. KCUR Public Radio: Clay has sent KCUR all his press releases, but nary a word from this liberal-oriented public radio station and its biased producer Frank Morris and establishment-loving radio host Steve Kraske.
#4. The Call Newspaper and Eric Wesson. Yesterday, Eric sent out nasty garbage about Clay's anti-crime press release saying Clay was making "racially insensitive comments" and we don't want to "unleash more (community) police officers in the (Eastside) neighborhoods." This incomprehensible sentiment even though there are an abominable number of homicides taking place there that are terrorizing citizens, destroying families and dragging down the Kansas City community itself. Again, no offer from Eric to interview Clay.
#5. KCPT Public Television: Even the venerable Nick Haines told Clay the other day, "you don't make the cut," for being able to participate in the upcoming Ch. 19 mayoral debate on March 20. Nick, it's no wonder Clay is not showing very well in the polls to date, when the local news media refuse to even mention Clay's name or cover Clay's stance on the issues.
Fortunately, Channel 5 and channel 41 have contacted Clay for an interview. Look to those stations, and Tonyskansascity, if you want fair and balanced coverage of the mayor's race. At least they appear willing to give Clay a fair shot and let Clay communicate to voters why he is the best choice to fix our messed up City and return to the people "the City Beautiful."
Mayoral candidate, Clay Chastain.
