KANSAS CITY STAR SHARES JUNE 18TH ELECTION ENDORSEMENTS WITHOUT CORPORATE TAX BREAK DISCLOSURE!!!
Right now the so-called Kansas City paper-of-record is playing political power broker and not community journalism source.
Here's the main concern of this quickly fading newspaper right now . . .
The Star’s endorsements for KC mayor, City Council and Question 1 in Tuesday’s election
The choices are pretty typical and don't represent any great departure from the status quo.
The Star backed all incumbents and the wife of a Federal judge along with supporting continued developer incentives.
To that point . . .
THE KANSAS CITY STAR FAILED TO DISCLOSE TAXPAYER SUBSIDIES FOR THE LOCATION OF THEIR PRINTING FACILITY!!!
Sure, they were forced to sell their big buildings but the property remains abated so the paper continues to enjoy the patronage on their lease back agreement.
And so, the fact that they're basically just a glorified developer & construction company PR outlet might deserve a mention to readers who mistakenly believe there's a real choice betwixt most of the politicos running for office.
You decide . . .
