KANSAS CITY PUSHES BACK AGAINST NEWSPAPER COMEBACK HYPE!!! JACKSON COUNTY ADVOCATE KAPUT!!!

Kansas City newspapers continue their decline and the hope that community news would save the printed work is overwrought.  

We linked it previously but our newsie friends are celebrating this report that offers a glimmer of hope: 

"In South Kansas City, Death of Newspapers is Greatly Exaggerated"

It's a nice story but a comment on the piece is far more telling and offers a noteworthy perspective . . .

"I live in south KC, and enjoy the historical articles that often appear in the Martin City Telegraph, but the editorial bias of the paper is strongly slanted toward the Chamber of Commerce mentality, which means domination by commercial and development interests, and City bureaucracy (call it The Establishment for short). John Sharp, The Godfather of south KC politics, is a frequent contributor, and writes propaganda pieces in almost every edition."

And that brings us to another important Kansas City dead-tree tidbit . . . 

TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY ADVOCATE CALLS IT QUITS!!!

Okay, a few of your have already sent word about this local media development but it was news to me . . . Here's their end game line:

The Jackson County Advocate which "has served the Grandview and South Kansas City communities since 1953" will cease publication at the end of this month.

And so, as the most KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS tell us . . . "That Flatland headline is looking flatfooted."

Developing . . .

Advocate did great work in its day. Sad that they're going under.

At least the Jackson County Advocate would not have sat on a corruption story this big.

Then - more written details here.

Even at this point, I am stunned, not just be the outrageous corruption in the Biden crime family and the democrat/media/deep state/big tech scum that support them, but, by the amateurish, ham handed methods that are so obvious to anyone with even a cursory interest in the "President Elect" and his activities. The video is boring and the information follow up is meticulous and tiring to comprehend, but HOLY SHIT ARE THESE GUYS CROOKED AS FUCK AND IT IS AN "in your face" fuck you to the American people.

It's insulting to every American that these morons didn't at least get some killer actuaries to hide the money, the transfer of the money and - oh yeah! pay off the people they fucked over who finally had enough and came forward with evidence, video, audio, LAPTOPS (again), witness testimony and irrefutable evidence of the treason effected against America, by, holy shit - the incoming president of the US.

Andrea Winburg -

"The video is long – over an hour – and not all of it involves the Biden family. This post quotes those portions of the press conference that address Biden family corruption. The gist of it is that, while Democrats obsess about Trump’s purported criminality, despite the absence of any evidence, their chosen standard-bearer is extraordinarily corrupt.

Indeed, I would argue that Biden is one of the most corrupt politicians ever in America. In the past, corrupt politicians have confined themselves to playing dirty in their own back yard, making money from deals with fellow Americans.

I believe that Biden is the first person ever to serve in the highest reaches of government – the Senate and the Vice Presidency – who sold his country out to the highest foreign bidders. It’s an insult to everything America has stood for since its inception that massive election fraud might allow this person to set foot in the oval office."

When will the Star apologize to the Union and the drivers they stole the paper routes from?

They stole people’s lives. Livelyhoods. Generational money. The former writers don’t bring it up because it’s unmentionable.

Some serious I am sorry. That isn’t talked about.

Karma came and got the star and what the apology was they write about is what karma is doing to bankrupt them financially and morally.

Worst paper and apology ever.

I enjoy the Martin City Telegraph and look forward to when new issues come out. I don't care that they have a commerce lent, after all commerce is what built Martin City. Also, the newspaper is FREE. To bad other parts of the city don't have comparable newspapers. Choo, choo.

Star spent too much money hiring lame ass white hating columnists like Yell A-Boo-Hock-A and Louie Doo-Doo-Doo-Good.
