Newspaper Dinosaurs Play: Let's Pretend To Care About Kansas City Port Authority!!!

The alternative title for this post was "dead-tree" mutual masturbation as old school newspaper plan desperately find a way to keep from holding elected officials accountable but instead focus on the byzantine parlor games of local bureaucrats. Checkit:

Seg. 1: Kansas City's Port Authority | Seg. 2: Recovering Flooded Farmland

The goal of Port KC, is to drive economic development in Kansas City, Missouri, but many are questioning the agency's ability to act without answering to municipal voters or elected officials. Today, the organization's chief lends his perspective to the conversation, and defends their conduct when it comes to awarding tax incentives and taking on projects that are miles from the Port of Kansas City.

Twenty minutes of Stevens avoiding answering any of Kraske's softball questions.

Question number One should have been... "Isn't there a direct conflict of interest with Dan Fowler serving on the Board of PortKC and at the same time serving as a 2nd District member of the City Council?".

Oh, @8:25 - we DO care about the murders in this town.
We just don't care about sub-humans offing each other.
Now when one of them kills a real person, it's important to us.
