TKC READER QUESTION AND COMPLAINT: IS THE KANSAS CITY STAR JUST PUBLISHING LAW FIRM NOTES NOW?!?!
The Saturday issue is now circling the toilet bowl of history and will disappear in a month.
However, our KICK-ASS READER community offers a highlight and a glimpse at how the dead-tree institution sold out readers on their way to the grave . . .
"So few people read the Star, probably no one has noticed how the paper has embraced the practice of publishing "stories" that seem to be taken 100% from emails lawyers send about lawsuits they are filing. This is considered bad practice by most reputable news outlets, since they're just acting as a mouthpiece-stooge for a law firm. Not only do they publish the suit info, its often carried on the front page (today's issue has two such "stories") and over the fold. How lazy are these people?"
Answer . . .
Our TKC blog community doesn't think they're lazy at all . . . Maybe just distracted whilst looking (online) for better jobs as their work is quickly coming to an end.
