Journalism: Kansas City Royals Downtown Stadium Guessing Game

Actually . . . This is about the furthest from REAL NEWS that the local paper can get . . . They're throwing arrows at a board and reaching out into the darkness . . . In fact, all they're doing is spreading misinformation . . . Check-it . . .

"City and county officials continue to portray the East Village as the team’s highly-preferred option in private conversations with The Star, and it doesn’t require an elaborate investigation to secure the clues — the developer there began demolishing buildings in January, intensifying speculation that East Village will ultimately be selected from the group of 14 sites the team said it originally considered . . . Even so, that hasn’t prevented others from continuing to make a push. Or at least a pitch. Backers of at least two known sites are trying to steer the Royals toward alternatives. Those include the former Kansas City Star printing pavilion at 1601 McGee St. and a property north of the Missouri River in Clay County."
