Journalism: Kansas City TV Newsies Announce 'Suspect Description Guidelines' To Eliminate Threat Of Bias By Confirming It

This Kansas City mainstream media navel-gazing report reminds us that most "journalists" are just failed lit majors who never learned the meaning of irony thanks to that confusing old school song by Alanis Morissette which also thwarts the author of this garbage blog.

And so, here's today's hope for equity and inclusion from people with generic good looks along with impeccable hair, makeup and orthodontia . . .

41 Action News sets formal guidelines for the use of suspect descriptions

Mission statement . . .

In an effort to avoid unconscious bias in our storytelling, 41 Action News is formally announcing guidelines surrounding the use of suspect descriptions in our reporting. 

As stated in our guidance, “we are committed to eliminating the opportunity for unconscious bias by only using descriptions when there is something that can be specifically identifiable.”

This means we will avoid announcing suspect descriptions if they are so generic that they describe a vast number of people and therefore, do not assist viewers in identifying potential suspects and could potentially put innocent people at risk.

In the event that law enforcement agencies provide us with vague descriptions, we believe it is our responsibility to ask for additional details. If law enforcement officials cannot provide additional details, we will not report the description.

This does not mean we will eliminate all suspect descriptions in our reporting. In fact, we have decided to include suspect descriptions when police are searching for someone wanted for a serious or violent crime.
 

Translation . . . 

ONLY KANSAS CITY POOR WHITE TRASH WILL HAVE THEIR MUGSHOTS & DESCRIPTIONS PUT ON BLAST AFTER HORRIFIC CRIME!!!

Given that we're talking about newsies and people suspected doing some pretty nasty stuff . . . We don't expect much sympathy from any side on this one. 

Meanwhile . . . 

Most of the benefit of TKC has emerged as our blog community serves as a resource for translating increasingly common American newspeak into information that doesn't require a doctorate in racial and ethnic studies to understand.

What about if the suspect is caught and charged with the crime? Will they change D'Quan to John and Toriano to Terry?

Folks, it be racist to admit the truth about who's responsible for the crime in our town, so we're dropping the offending details so we can virtue signal real good.

And yet another reason not to watch 41, not only the news content but their policy!!

Some of their anchors and reporters can't even speak correctly and they sure as hell can't tell you what intersection they are at or what part of town!! IT's amazing and another reason why I quit watching them

And just so you bastards don't draw some racial inference here it's the quality of the reporters and anchors they have and one that you see in so called journalism now

These folks may not know much about bias.
But they are experts at being unconscious.
Dripping with guilt and self-pity.
They must have found a special on hair shirts.
