SHOCK!!! CORONAVIRUS COULD HELP SAVE KANSAS CITY STAR PARENT COMPANY McCLATCHY FROM PENSION PROBLEMS!!!



As if The Kansas City Star begging subscribers for donations wasn't bad enough, now it seems that taxpayer stimulus might help subsidize their hyper-partisan, elitist publication.

To wit and with special thanks to the smartest people who read this blog . . .

DEMOCRATIC PARTY STIMULUS PLANS INCLUDE EPIC CASH KINDNESS FOR McCLATCHY THAT SHOULD TRICKLE DOWN UPON THE KANSAS CITY STAR!!!

As conservatives worry about the end of capitalism during coronavirus this potential boost still doesn't help the paper garner more influence, respect or credibility over the average scumbag blogger . . . Here at TKC we know EVERYTHING about scumbag blogging!!! And that makes us an EXCEPTIONAL scumbag blogger. But I digress . . .

The point here is that Kansas City Star constantly trades upon their "credibility" with readers who mistakenly believe they're paying for independent and thoughtful journalism. In fact, the local newspaper is turning into just another sponsored content rag. But way less fun.

Even worse . . .

SHOULDN'T McCLATCHY & THE STAR REFUSE THESE FUNDS THAT SHOULD HELP PEOPLE NOT CORPORATIONS?!?

The newspaper might be begging for cash but they're a business and not a charity.

And so, whilst these professionals snub their noses at broadcast and Internets newsies . . . It's important to keep track of their growing list of ethical lapses that have become even more shameless amid the pandemic.

Checkit:

Roll Call: Democrats’ virus rescue plan would help McClatchy, other papers

"Proposal would allow more newspapers to benefit from pension relief, though critics say industry problems were evident long before COVID-19"

You decide . . .

hey now. I'm not against the subsidy but if they're taking taxpayer money than shouldn't the paywall be dropped?

Trump lied; 60,000 Americans died. 30 million people unemployed. No end in sight. Main Street devastated. All Lives Matter until they don't.

ACTION ALERT: Crack 1st Division Deplorable keyboard warriors. If you're going to bash newspapers, better brush up on how Trump acquaintances received "small business" corporate welfare for their large businesses. Same goes for Trump donors essentially stealing the funds, too.

Republican grifters heartily feeding at the Fed trough yet Deplorables say nothing. Their selective MAGA filter prevents honesty but we already know that. Trying huffing Lysol, Deplorables. It'll clear your head.

Diddling Dork, do you have any other line? You have the same BS line everytime. Smart Americans know the blame isn't with any one person. From either party. People like you do nothing to actually resolve a problem, just blame others. Just shows your low IQ and disregard for humanity to further an agenda. Get another hobby!

Anonymous said...

Hillary got correct information and perfectly health Americans died, but like she said... "What Difference Does It Make?" as she cackles and strokes out. All she would be doing is making excuses. Is Trump pumping tax dollars into the McClatchys and Solyndras that are already done? It's just prolonging the inevitable. He didn't say to put Lysol in you, a lie repeated is still a lie. Enjoy your 4 more.

You really need some new Democrat Party line of lies and propaganda. Your current copy and paste material is weak and displays a low IQ as you have nothing to offer inciteful or thought provoking.

Looks like Tara Reade will be the downfall of Joe Biden. Being an accused rapist will not garner the suburban women vote Biden needs.

Plus everyone can see his dementia whenever he speaks.

It really sucks if taxpayers are funding the Kansas City Stars pension plan. Those hateful, communist bastards at the KC Star need to go bankrupt.

Democrat Party propping up their propaganda machine. Goebbels would be proud of the Star.

9:09 - yes, yes. very fair comparison. the number 4, those tragically killed in Benghazi, compared to 60,000.

if that fat fucking narcissist in the WH would take any advice that doesn't come out of his addled brain, we could have mitigated the impacts of this virus and the economic fall out. but, the guy despises the intelligence community and didn't want to risk any sort of impacts to his 'booming' economy. guess that backfired.

now we got that limp dicked robot fuck jared out here telling us how this is great win for the WH how all this has gone down. anyone on here want to explain to me how this is all a win? anything positive that has happened has been in spite of the WH.

Too bad Joe Biden is a rapist as that probably dooms his presidential run. Even fellow prisoners hate rapists and usually whack them.

Diddling Don said...

Deplorables calling Biden a rapist. The TRUE definition of hypocrisy.

"I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything." -- Donald J. Trump taking about sexually assaulting women

Anonymous said...

Glad you bring it up. Here's why.

Part of the reason that "Grab em by the pussy" had zero effect on Trump is that it was a conversation about women, not a narrative of an actual event. Pretty clear if you listen to it. That's not great, but it's not assault, because even in your own quote he's described a kind of consent.

On the other hand, it's pretty clear that Two-Finger Joe actually DID grab Tara Reade by the pussy without consent. I know you don't want to talk about that, but it's effectively sunk your candidate (as if the obvious cognitive decline and corruption issues weren't enough).

#believe all women right? Right?

When the left has a stable ethical position, let us know. And the poster above is right; you aren't very good at this.

Reade's story, just like any other, deserves to be heard. Has it changed and have details been omitted, yes. It happens often with sexual assault. However, there are other issues. When it appeared Biden was going to all but end Sander's candidacy, she tweeted out "Yup. Timing...wait for it...tic toc". In response to a tweet by The Bern Report suggesting Biden was doing well the night of the IA caucus she tweeted out "To Joe Biden really? I say to Joe Biden tick tock...." Reade has also been accused of lying and stealing by a non profit horse rescue group. Reade did file a police report in 1993 but doesn't mention Biden or any corroborators. Reade claims she told other Biden staffers about assault. None of them recall this. Reade claims she filed a report with Senate staff office but no record has been found. Reade was backing Bernie Sanders and has some 'weird' public comments praising Putin. There is a recording of Reade's mother on Larry King talking about "problems" her daughter had while working with a DC Senator. Read's brother did tell the Post that Biden had behaved inappropriately by touching her neck and shoulders. A Sanders supporter then spoke to him and then he sent a text clarifying that he referred to assault without using those words. So I guess there's some support for her claims.

This is one accuser. Other's have accused Biden of making them uncomfortable with hugs and touching, not assault. Trump has been accused of assault by 25 women. Twenty Five. There's no comparison Trumptards. None.

Twenty fucking Five. 25 women just making shit up I guess.

Biden is toast. His virtual silence on the entire matter speaks volumes. With his brain gone, his son made into a millionaire because of his father's position and unethical influence, and his past assault on this woman, he is a goner. Someone will take his place soon. This will not end well for Joe Biden.

Anonymous said...

So hey, do you believe her? Or not? #believe or not? They to have one stable ethical standard.

Let's investigate as we did Kavanaugh. Remember? Months of bullshit based on a clear hoax that exonerated the accused. Bernie's campaign manager has wisely called for Biden to step aside. And most shamefully, the same women who wanted to exhaust every possible line of investigation into Kavanaugh based on a rumor (Harris, Gillenbrand) suddenly don't believe a woman who has far more substance to her claim.

So, nice try, but there's no way to weasel out of your glaring hypocrisy.

Anonymous said...

So where are they? Why have we not investigated? Do you think, be honest now, that if there was a shred of real evidence that the media and the Dems wouldn't try to go after Trump with it? I mean, this is a bunch that actually invented crimes to impeach the guy with!

Nah. Not convinced. Just own your double standard and let's all move on.

Since the Kansas City Star and other papers are basically just p.r. wings of the Democratic Party and their articles and columns are DNC talking points, it makes sense that the Democrats would want to rescue them.

Anonymous said...

After all the fake charges they've leveled at Trump and he has withstood because he wasn't guilty, it is time to dive deep into the Democractic nominee for president. Sending millions of dollars, along with Obama, to the radical Iranian leadership so they could blow up more U.S. soldiers and further their nuke efforts, just shows Biden's brain was gone a long time ago. The hypocrisy of the female Dem politicians in the face of Tara Reade's allegations is despicable. Kavanaugh was guilty immediately to them, but Biden is innocent without any kind of in-depth review.

Anonymous said...

^^^Yep, 25 of them 'fake' charges.

Let me know when Biden closes the gap there outside of 1 to 25. There's your hypocrisy.

I think Biden is well aware you fucks are voting for Trump regardless of the shit sandwich he serves you up so there's no need to say jack. Adults in the country will evaluate Tara Reade's accusations and go from there.

Barely even a response. Why haven't they been investigated with all the fire and fury of Kavanaugh then? We asked you this. Let's go case by case, O champion of victims. Come on now, this is supposed to be what you guys are good at. Let's investigate! I'm all for it. Didn't you guys blow up Stormy Daniels and her sleazeball lawyer when you thought they would sink the bad Orange Man?

Oh wait. Consent. Dang.

So, surrender accepted as your position is indefensible and you know it.

Let's say everything Trump has been accused of was true before the election. America still elected him. What does that mean? Like everything in politics he was the most desirable candidate, a compromise if you will. Which means the Democrats best was still worse. Is Biden better than Hillary at this point, don't think so. Think about Dems..........really THINK about it!

Geesus 1:13, you're argument is sucking doesn't matter. The last 3-6 months have shown sucking has consequences. I mean, what the fuck does Trump stand for? Why should I vote for Trump outside of a. apparently it's hypocritical to question or evaluate an assault accusation against Biden (because Trump has none against him I guess) b. Biden is old and senile (have you seen that adderall sniffing dipshit speak with and without a teleprompter, weird hill to die on as a Trumper) c. Biden's kid parlayed having a Dad in politics into cushy high paying jobs (see the whole fucking Trump clan).

I don't give a fuck about a wall so what else is there for me to pull for Trump on? An extra $100/month in tax breaks. Yippee.

Who can forget headlines about Dems squealing like little kittens when Trump closed the border from China.
Tweets from Schumer and the media don’t age well as they called him racist for closing the borders.
He helped save millions of lives.

As the Star stays home and inside scared- perhaps they should look at history of reporters on the front lines of wars.
Also- why are they not questioning the 10-10-10 of Lucas and his rationale?
Hospitals here are empty and lives are costed as people are scared to get heart pains looked at and So forth.

All the fear mongering the media did will kill millions in the world as food becomes scarce in 3rd world countries.

And they want a pension bail out?

If the failed Star receives any bailout money from the government the Star must be required to start producing 2-ply toilet paper. Only problem is everyone would have to start wiping left handed.

Actually, the real advice would be to advocate for change within your own party. You all are so obsessed with Trump that you can't fix what caused many of us to #walkaway. You've lost this election already because your only issue has been hating Trump, instead of doing something about kitchen table issues. This is to say nothing of the continual screwing of the Bernie voters, the adoption of impossibly shitty candidates, and the incurable split between far left radicals and centrists.

You still have to have the voters. If you had spent any time actually trying to figure out how to sway those 'Trumpkins' and 'Deplorables' instead of continuing to insult and alienate them, you might have had a shot. Too late for this election but it's worth thinking about.

Because you're right. Trump is a weak candidate in many ways, with huge and obvious vulnerabilities. If you had any platform or strategy or a viable candidate, you might have a shot.

Those Trumpkins, right? Too bad ALL of them vote.

Gee whiz, a lot of polls, in swing states too, not just nationally, have Biden leading by a few points (some close to double digits). There's plenty of time but Donnie isn't exactly helping his cause. Elect a clown, get fucking clownshow.

1:46 - quit with the 'closed the border' bullshit. it was a chinese people ban. you see, when you allow 40,000 plus people to come from a country after closing the borders of the US to that country, it's not closing the border. You can keep repeating your lie, it won't make it true slappy.

God, Trumpers are sooooooo fucking easy for Trump's grift. Fucking lap that shit up. You elected a fucking failed businessman, a failed reality star and a grifter and he sucks. Own his shittiness and quit making excuses. We're right where we are today because of him.
