At the Kansas City Star, some DUIs are more worthy of coverage than others

Betsy Webster, a reporter for KCTV5 in Kansas City, was recently arrested for DUI. The KC Star has apparently covered her arrest in more than one article.

Webster obviously didn't get the special treatment Rhonda "three tire" Lokeman got. The Star didn't cover Lokeman's arrest until they were shamed into covering it after this post was published several weeks after her arrest.

A cynic would say it helps to be married to the publisher. (Thanks to several readers who pointed this out in comments.)

Three cheers for Justin Kendall for his coverage of these events. Pitch is rapidly becoming the paper of record for KC for conservatives and liberals alike.
