TKC READER: KC PBS SO WHITE DESPITE PROGRESSIVE PROTESTATIONS!!!

This morning data-driven journalism from our blog community powers an important FACT CHECK for Kansas City media that often lectures the public about diversity and inclusion.

Check-it . . .

IS KANSAS CITY PUBLIC TELEVISION A BASTION FOR WHITE MALES WHO DON'T PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH?

Let's quickly answer that question by going directly to the data compiled by Guidestar for KCPT - Now KC PBS.

BOARD MEMBERS = 24

By race:  79% White, 13% Black, 4% Latino, 4% Asian

By gender:  58% Male, 42% Female
 
SENIOR STAFF = 7

By race:  86% White, 14% Black

By gender:  71% Male, 29% Female

As you can see, the answer to the original question posed, "IS KCPT A BASTION FOR WHITE MALES WHO DON'T PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH?" would appear to be a resounding YES.

At first glance, that seems to be odd, does it not?  Given that KCPT is at the forefront of KC regional Liberal news spin, promoting the Progressive agenda of things like illegal immigration, government expansion, LGBTQ, climate change, the welfare state, minimum wage mandates, anti-police rhetoric, and more.  I wonder how many area residents realize that White Males are far and away the primary benefactors of KCPT's leadership posts.

According to their latest available (2017) IRS Form 990 Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax, KCPT paid their White Male KCMO non-resident CEO Kliff Kuehl just over $337,000 for a 40-hour/week schedule.  There is also an additional performance bonus of $60,737 disclosed on Schedule J, Part 1, Line 7.

Public charity pays well for those at the top, and those at the top of KCPT are White Males!  Go diversity!  Go inclusion!  Go away, and let White Males run the show?

Just a guess: White males are the only ones with half a brain and the desire to work?

How hard can it be to run a TV station that has less viewers than RFD TV? I suppose all that begging for money does pay off.

MO Rage points this out on a regular basis.

In their appeals for funding they put forth a diverse coalition.

But, it's just for show.

This is how this marxist/socialist/democrat city works as long city hall allows convention hotels, convention centers, entertainment districts, parking garages for luxury apartments and condos, stadium funding and arenas to be the primary focus KC city hall. The media is muzzled and their is NO accountability.

For the most part looks like they represent the population in most areas. Unlike network television where Whites are down to about 30% representation on camera as well as the commercials they run.

13 or 14 per cent black? So what? Blacks are only 13 per cent of the population anyway. The numbers are appropriate.

Judging by the stats, Latinos are the most underrepresented, but that's only if you believe a return to Affirmative Action is smart. I guess we'll go against MLK's desire for people to be judged by the content of their character and other factors, and not the color of their skin.

^^should be "there" & should be "were" instead of was.

I care about your opinion about as much as you care about mine.

I've been called a loser by a Trumptard? Oh, the horror.

Typical latte liberal hypocrites.

No company should be required or expected to hire someone because of their race! And if a certain race can’t or won’t stay in school, build a good job history, develops some marketable skills, then it’s not anyone’s fault but their own! And don’t say there is no opportunity, 8 years of a black president says otherwise!

KCPT is a bastion for gay white males.

This White would be HAPPY to defund this one sided shitshow. I'm tired of funding even more useless libs.

Limousine liberal members of the Karencratic party are all for equal rights until they move into their half million dollar homes neighborhood. Two faced f--ks is what they are.

Way past time for the blue chip fat n happy nonprofit world to get a major haircut. Why so many trillions untaxed wealth shielded by foundations ad nonprofits and endowments when so many hurting ? Look at KCPT and the top salaries. Yes 400 grand salary and bonus for a guy who has created zero jobs and takes zero risks.

Men are so arrogant. Realistically they think they work so hard and are so smart but everyone knows women have more brains than men. Many women work harder too. Women are also smart enough to make good decisions so they do not end up being sued and are smart enough to keep it in their pants at work, something men have always been unable to do.
