TKC MUST SEE!!! SHERIFF FORTÉ TROLLS FADING KANSAS CITY DEAD TREE MEDIA!!!
Long, long ago it was advised that politicos should never argue with people who buy ink by the barrel.
Nowadays, Internets slap fighting among politicos vs. reporters is encouraged by social media algorithms desperate to drive traffic and share of mind for their platforms. Also, credit Prez Trump in leading the way for politicos to push back against the MSM.
Accordingly, in a somewhat recent tweet, take a look at an elected law enforcement official spreading more than a little bit of salt the way of two newspaper workers with careers that span decades:
"Was @kcmikehendricks fired from @KCStar today. Hope it’s not true because he hasn’t corrected the numerous errors in his last story. Please ask his supervisor to contact me. What ever happened to @bshelly? Is it true she transferred to the Globe? I enjoy reading your newspaper."
Link and screen grab saved for Internets archives:
Remember that the Jackson County Sheriff recently started an online flame war with the Lee's Summit newsies, now he seems even more emboldened to move from community reporter squabbles and step up his game against corporate news denizens.
And so the sharp death spiral of newspaper journalism persists as politicos now openly mock reporters with Prez Trump leading the trend against the media.
