KANSAS CITY FAKE BOOZE NEWS HYPE FOR J.RIEGER & CO DISTILLERY DEBUT HATES YOUR ALCOHOLIC LIVER!!!



Rather than report on real life in Kansas City, more than a few "news" outlets are taking a great deal of time to offer hard liquor promotion.

Here's a real news perspective on the reality of rising alcohol abuse and "deaths of despair" among Americans:

WaPo: The Big Number -- 17.6 million Americans suffer from alcoholism

Forbes: Problem Drinking Rises In Older Americans

Reuters: Alcohol's secondhand harms prevalent among U.S. women and men

And so . . .

SHAME ON KANSAS CITY MEDIA HACKS WHO SPENT THEIR AFTERNOON PROMOTING HARD LIQUOR TO THE PUBLIC WITHOUT ANY FACT CHECK ABOUT THE HORRIFIC CONSEQUENCES OF ALCOHOL!!!

A sampling of hype for edification and to boost TKC's keyword search traffic:

If You Don’t Swing By The New J. Rieger & Co. Distillery This Weekend, You’re Not Living Your Best Life

J. Rieger & Co.’s new welcome center ties KC’s past to its future

A PEEK INSIDE: J. Rieger & Co. holds grand opening Friday afternoon

Now, our blog readership is comprised of adults . . . We don't condescend to our blog community who have the FREEDOM to put whatever they please into their mouths.

But there's simply no denying that "family friendly" and "professional" news outlets are dedicating a great deal of freebie promotion to this local whiskey joint and ignoring the ravages of alcoholism endured by their audience.

You decide . . .

the liberal MSM is a big part of the cultural, social and industry factors that foster alcoholic dependence in waay too many Americans.

Good post by TKC!

It's okay, seems like it's already overrated.

Did they also provide information about Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Al-Teen & Adult Children of Alcoholics?

Alcohol destroys more lives than all other drugs combined.

If your drunk uncle says it's not an addiction, & it's not a drug. Tell him to prove it by stopping.

I'm not pickled but most people in the world are including Byron the American hating commie. Pickled pickled pickled drinking is for little babies who can't handle life and have no social skills unless they are pickled.

What's up pickles?

6:03 - My nephew's drunk uncle gets up and goes to work five days a week, sometimes six. How about your nephew's sober uncle?

Man, I get fired up for some Jim Beam!

Oops! Bad. Sad. That huge whiskey spill caused a massive fish kill.

Wait! What? Oh, you say those are frat-boy fish. So, they were just passed out.

It's not as bad as TKC wants you to believe. There is nothing wrong with an occasional sip of liquor. I try to limit mine by only drinking on the days ending in "Y".
