TKC QUESTION TONIGHT: HAS PREZ TRUMP EMPOWERED KANSAS CITY FOOTBALL FANBOYS TO CHALLENGE FAKE NEWS?!?!



Despite his divisive image, Prez Trump might be the greatest media detractor in the history of the White House.

And whilst the Prez has no love for the NFL, his swagger seems to have enabled locals to push back against the media with a greater sense of purpose.

Our reader community reminds us that sports talker KK was recently taken down for his nasty criticism of the Chiefs and now fanboys have set their sights on KCTV5 with the same kind of intensity and a call for journalistic integrity.

Here's the heartfelt response tonight . . .



KCTV5 news director discusses editorial process regarding Tyreek Hill

The excuse is mostly backpedaling and attempt to humanize their embattled news org whilst reporters are beat up on social media . . .

For better or worse, Kansas City athletic supporters are more apt to pick on lady sports newsies than give credit to 610 or Chiefs' blogs for their exceptional work in bringing the full audio context to light.

And so . . .



The debate betwixt real vs. fake news continues in Kansas City and across the nation as Americans struggle with a healthy distrust of what they see vs. outright cynicism that only inspires keyboard warriors to keep consuming the very Internets garbage of which they decry.

You decide . . .

It's President Trump and social media. The fans have a bigger voice now and media people need to be liked, that's one of the many weaknesses in their model and why they have to go on air to defend themselves. These are MAGA supporters, they're just locals who can see how the story was manipulated and massaged.

You posted the suggestion a few days ago and it's the best one that I've seen. Angie & Brooke need to be taken to task and either apologize for their obfuscation or really explain why they did it. The news director trying to take the heat off doesn't cut it.

^^^ don't be triggered. I I don't even think that's the original "weird" poster. The comments have taken over the original lime and made it something way more stupid. Just like our president has commandeered the media narrative and made it his own.

If the orange Cheeto is leading the way, we're screwed. Closer to bankruptcy than I thought.

Let's be clear: When Der Fuhrer says, "Fake News" he means news that isn't favorable to him. He does not mean news that isn't true. He dispenses more "Fake News" than all of the media outlets combined.

He was never "standing up to the media", he was bullying the media, & failing to support The Constitution. The Media is not the "Enemy of the American People. He is the enemy of the American people. The news outlets that he hates the most are the ones who stand up to him. Even Fox News is beginning to call "Bullshit" on his constant, never ending stream of lies, & absurdities.

He is not a "stable genius", he's a fucking moron.

^^^^ He was standing up to welfare bums like YOU!

Sad.

College Journalism Schools are taught by left-wing commie professors who never had a real job in their life.

Remember Left-Wing Democrats raised YOUR property taxes 25%; hundreds and thousands of dollars per homeowner per year.

DEMOCRATS = HIGHER TAXES, lying media, corrupt politicians, and support for lower wages by bringing in illegal aliens to strengthen the DEMOCRAT political base.

^^^^ Sounds like typical corporate RETHUGlican garbage so that big business can steal from workers by playing to their racism. You're partisan b.s. is old, Trump changed the game and now we know most Republican wimps are also on the wrong side of history.

Let's be clear: When Herr Fuckhouser says anything it's Fake Facts and lies from a professional liar

Troll, troll, troll your boat, gloat and dream some more, you'll never ever be anyone, so choke and die you whore.

I remember when one, a single, only one, lie could get your dumbass run from public office. Now....it's the norm with the guy in charge.

Politics in this country has become a joke and we've been turned into a banana republic. It may be broke forever.

^^^^I remember when bitches like you who said things like that had the balls to say so and owning up to what they said.

Brooke and the girl from KCTV5 need to be fired because this is journalistic malpractice. Editors need to be fired too because they had to have knows also. Anyone with even an intro class in journalism under their belt knows this. The star has irreversibly lost credibility due to 4 months of them perpetuating this and shilling their false narrative to try and get readers. Crying gender is just sad

^^^ Typical Democrat. When confronted with facts, scream racism in reply.

Jackson County Democrat Party raised everyone's property taxes by 25% or more costing homeowners $500 or more annually in increased property taxes. Why vote for a party that takes your hard earned money?

If Bernie Sanders or Cortez become President say goodbye to the Trump tax cuts and brace yourself for thousands more in income taxes (theft) from your paycheck.

Fiesta, you need to take an Economics class and learn about Supply and Demand. Corporate big business actually likes illegal aliens for more cheap labor worker bees. Bigger supply of worker bees means Big Business pays lower wages per worker bee.

The failure of the Democratic Party for the everyday working Americam regardless of ethnicity is that illegal immigration lowers wages and higher taxes reduces worker's net pay (buying power), which in turn,lowers demand for goods and services causing layoffs of workers who produce those goods and services.

Fiesta,take your racist tinted glasses off and read an Economics book. Also you might read a History Book about Joseph Stalin and the collapse of Communism that Democrats seem to be embracing these days.
