KANSAS CITY ACTIVIST ALONZO WASHINGTON CALLS OUT JOHN PEPITONE FOR POACHING PRICE GOUGING STORY!!!
The connections betwixt activists and journalists can often prove contentious but a recent report stands out.
First story story that's documented and offers a glimpse at life under the lockdown . . .
Urban Core Kansas Citians complain of price gouging after 30 eggs priced at $10
Thing of it is . . . Kansas City Crime Fighter Alonzo Washington informed his community of TENS OF THOUSANDS OF FOLLOWERS about this unacceptable situation DAYS AGO.
Here's the situation according to Mr. Washington who is, understandably, frustrated with MSM using him as a resource without credit:
"This MFer basically plagiarized all my tweets and Facebook post about Wild Woody's. My social media is a template for lazy-ass b*tch ass reporters to copy what I post. F-u John Pepitone . . .
"The KC press began to get upset when I would solve crimes & not want to give me credit for tips that my social media & advocacy helped solve. I solved the Precious Doe case & they leave me out of the story now. Lying b*tches!!!
"I actually started talking about it a week ago but over the weekend I decided to ask the community to report it to the AG."
Before commenters express skepticism . . . DOZENS of MR. Washington's followers are backing him up on his assertion.
Of course this blog is built on the axiom that "information wants to be free" and in this instance it's clear the Mr. Washington exposed the social media "research" that supports the local corporate news structure.
