Here's a funny that I'm sure our readers will appreciate . . .
Of course we love to support local reporting . . . Even if its state sponsored garbage.
Sadly, our blog doesn't get a lot of love or respect from our betters who work in the cowtown MSM.
Here's a fun example . . .
THE KANSAS CITY PBS NEWSLETTER hit us with a nasty tag that's worth a peek . . .
First, here's a quick bit of proof that we signed up for their weekly offering using our website e-mail address that's also displayed on the sidebar of this blog . . .
Today, our newsletter greeting wasn't so nice . . . Take a look . . .
Actually, we went back a few months and noticed our subscription tag had been changed sometime late last year . . . Our MSM colleagues probably won't accept our highlight of their subscription system insult and that's their prerogative.
The tag is something added ON THEIR END given that we checked out the raw e-mail message and noted that its "description" was added from their Mailchimp account.
Our takeaway . . .
As always, this is just another reminder that Kansas City progressives aren't as tolerant as they portray themselves.
Of course we've criticized PBS but, as far back as I can remember, we didn't accuse them of any "backdoor shenanigans" and basically just nitpicked at their politics and bias.
Nevertheless . . .
Throughout the life of this blog TKC is accustomed to getting treated like garbage by Kansas City journalists working at mainstream news organizations.
Don't worry we take it all in stride and often found it comforting that Dave Helling couldn't hear our insults directed his way whilst he bellowed his condescending laughter in our general direction.
It's all fair play.
And this snithe bit of MSM push back simply makes us feel a bit more confident in our criticism of PBS and other local newsies.
We merely share this slice of blogger life to remind locals that, behind the scenes, so many journalists working in Kansas City aren't really so nice.
