Kansas City Star brags about winning a major award, fails to disclose it laid off one of the awardees in November

Even when they win an award, the people at the Kansas City Star manage to make themselves look like fools. Via State of the Line:
"... paper wins major award, fails to disclose that one of the awardees got the ax back in November..."
As Junior Sample used to say, "It's not the heat, it's the stupidity."

It seems like every other day, the Red Star has yet another example of their lack of integrity exposed. If you take a look at the remaining so-called columnists, that can only get worse. Geez, put out the cat, turn off the lights, and lock the door.

He is not unemployed, he is a nationally unsyndicated columnist for the K.C. Star.

Unsyndicated in thousands of newspapers no doubt? Hey, it works for Lokeman.

Dump the award winner, keep Lokeman. Another genius move.

I love this board.

Funny, when the shoe is on the other foot, the media always asks the tough questions.

Prey tell, why not now? I'm listening?

The media, ONLY asks tough questions, when THEY or any MARXIST are NOT involved.

Quite right, thanks for splaing.

MSM has a new meaning now that the old medis is shot to hell. MSM now means Marxist Stream Media. Knowing who they really are should help the new media destroy them.

The KC Scar has so little to talk about, let alone brag about. Maybe a little burp from the bloated corpse would be okay?

Man that stinks, that was a bad idea.

Ok, maybe it's just me, but this board rocked this weekend.

The KC Scar is over and done. The Z-man has killed any reputation they had left.

Please don't get me started on Lokeman. She is like a bad nightmare that occurs weekly. Is there any way to find out what her column costs? Even if it is $100, that is a waste of funds. Keep a real journalist, and dump the amateur.
