I didn't see the comment Steve's referring to, but it's possible the commenter took issue with KVOE's association with ABC because s/he perceived some bias in the network's news reporting.



Media Bias Fact Check indicates, "Overall, we rate ABC News Left-Center biased base…

CSD commented on Consider the source

SeanRankin, I believe it was Ashley Walker who so eloquently once said, "We hide our poor well in Emporia." People spending an extra $12 a month to go towards a school shouldn't, as you say, hurt them at all. But in Emporia, it very easily can. According to CensusReporter.org, 17% of our …

If we're talking reputational stains and shocking betrayals, one might want to consider adding Cokie Roberts and her husband to that list. The Roberts' efforts to mislead the public into thinking Hamid's circumstances, which are demonstrably different from those of Naseri and have nothing w…

According to the June 10, 2017 edition of the Gazette, the FHCHC approached Madison High School about opening this clinic. The low bid to build the health clinic was just over $300,000 and FHCHC covered all of those costs. FHCHC reportedly agreed to enter into a five-year lease agreement wi…

I hate to burst sarelon's bubble but, according to Smithsonian Magazine, the idea that "This country was established to be a melting pot of people fleeing other countries due to persecution and in search of freedom" is "the storybook version most of us learned in school" …

CSD commented on The Choice

Thinking Kansans know Greg Orman is the only choice for governor. Laura Kelly is a profile in political cowardice whose promise to balance the state budget while lowering sales tax revenue and without raising other taxes is the kind of magical thinking Kansans cannot afford to indulge in un…
