Kansas City Newsie Conversation This Week

Our weekly check-in with the pros, pundit and opinion makers who offer their insight into local developments . . . Double bonus, one member of this panel is only playing a working newsie for this chat show.


"Nick Haines, Mary Sanchez, Dave Helling, Pete Mundo and Micheal Mahoney discuss the potential change in ownership of the Kansas City Royals, the eviction of the T-Bones baseball team, the response to the KC homicide rates topping 100 once again, Gov. Parson drawing both Democrat and Republican opponents, the block on the Missouri abortion ban & the alleged whisper campaign against Steve Watkins."

Take a look:

You decide . . .

Having your own Party Leaders running around screaming "Somebody please get this dumb bastard out of office!" hardly constitutes a "whisper campaign" against Watkins, IMHO.

Haines framed the issue by stating that there have been 16 additional homicides in KC since the program last aired, discussing the murder of an OPKS woman at First Fridays.

Pete Mundo made the point that Mayor Lucas' predecessor made it a practice to throw his hands up in the air and blame Jefferson City for KC's gun violence.

How interesting then that this panel, dominated by liberal journalists, then followed suit by blaming MO's Republican Governor and Legislature for KC's problem!

Why is it SO EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT for some people in KCMO to take responsibility for their own problems? Is it because they'd have to admit that their entrenched Democratic Party leadership is a major contributing factor? KC's last non-Democrat Mayor was Richard Berkley who left office in 1991. Since then it's been a procession of dysfunctional clown cars spilling out characters like Cleaver, Barnes, Funkhouser, James, and now DUI Law "Professor" Lucas. Folks, the circus came to KC almost 30 years ago, and they never packed up their tent and left. It's a dying shame.
