The relatively new blog by Star reporters Steve Kraske and Dave Helling continues to disappoint. Never much of anything of interest….days will go by between posts…(I can understand that but I am not getting paid by The Star)
Helling’s recent post about tv stations being sold in St. Louis shows his TV side and his lack of journalism fact digging. Anyone who has been in media as long as Helling has been ought to understand how de-regulation has hurt the industry over the years.
He ought to know that ownership can have multiple tv stations in a market. Dave take a look around KC….even your alma maters….nothing in FCC rules state that the stations can’t be both strong…
His quick dismissal of the ABC affiliate and The Fox affiliate shows a lack of understanding of the volatility of ratings and how quickly things can change.
Having this war criminal discussing foreign policy is like making a fascist be in charge of civil rights.
Just found Cooks Illustrated….what a great find
Great game…..of course KCTV did not give score during 10!pm news
Goofy Chris just doesn’t understand the cliches that he uses all the time. Last night or the night before he wanted to say “put your big toe into the lake to check the temperature” but he said “put your little toe into the lake.”
Chris use the cliche correctly or do not use them at all.
Another point Chris: do not give previews or game scores because you showed a picture of the “K”. Michael Coleman screws up enough he doesn’t need your help.
You are not being cute….you are just being a pain in the ass
Hope that Brett is actually making a difference. Remember the rebound has been against really crappy teams just like the Royals…..
And does Reid really need 22 assistant coaches? This will be okay if they win, but if they stumble, management will not be happy….
Better KC is on hiatus. How soon before KSHB pulls the plug on their abomination? Can’t be soon enough for most of us.
What gives her the credentials to do movie reviews?
KSHB tries so hard, but the reporting staff is so terrible, it just comes across as pathetic.
Coach’s and the UPS store strip mall at 103 & Wornall flood regularly…it is a story but not a great story.
John Landsburg has been a strong resource in this market. A veteran PR guy with great access and great integrity enabled people in one part of media know what was going on in other parts of the local media. The market used to be 4 TV stations and maybe 6 radio stations or merit and the newspaper….Now, the market is enormous and it is easy to lose track of what is going on in terms of personnel and errors/gaffes/or outright lies. John and Bottomline helped keep everybody more honest.
He would not run away from a fight. Sometimes he was right, and sometimes he was wrong…but he was right a lot more often….
Good luck in SC….remember even after you are there for 20+ years, you will still be the new kid.
