Will Kansas City News Media Downplay Power & Light District Murder?

From the coverage of this story on the local news media Web sites- it appears the downplay has already started...


As first reported here at CSW- a man in his 20's was shot and killed at Truman Road and McGee early Saturday morning- outside of one of the Power & Light District area bars.




As of 5 pm late Saturday afternoon- here's a sample of the various news organizations and how they're presenting Kansas City's latest murder via screen captures of their news pages:






  • The KANSAS CITY STAR:  










  • WDAF-4 (No Story at all- FOX-4 does not cover overnight weekend news!):  






  • KCTV-5:  






  • KMBC-9:  






  • KSHB-41 (No story on their Website even though I called their videographer to the scene!):  











After all- since KC-MO taxpayers are shovelling anywhere from $10 to $15-million per year into this eating and drinking area next to Sprint Arena downtown- we CAN'T have any negative publicity from this vicinity that will keep people away from the P&L and increase it's taxpayer subsidy!
