    Jon Stephens must get his numbers on downtown “attendance” from the same people that give President Obama his numbers on jobs created and saved. No way there have been 9 million “unique” visitors and to recount people every time they come down is flat out bullshit.

    And the comment about putting Kansas City back on the map is laughable. The P&L is in trouble, they can’t cover their “nut”. The taxpayers of KCMO will be well soaked when the final chapter is written.

    here’s the bottom line, P%L is 84% below projected revenue. If anything is newsworthy or a scandal that lack of revenue would seem to be the major issue.
    Nadia can be a a major Drama Queen, but there are worse sins.

    Anyone who thinks Cordish represents KC and that KC wasn’t already “on the map” is bonky, egotistical and wrong.

    I am sick of people treating this city like it’s always trying to do better than what it is. Kansas City is a great city with world class features. It’s absurd to act as if it would be nothing without the ridiculous Power & Light District.

    And quite frankly, I don’t give a shit what people outside of Kansas City think about Kansas City. How about FUCK THEM.

    Please shut up.

    Cordish has got to get off this high horse conservative thinking and open up a little. Power and Light is already in huge trouble and it’s likely to get alot worse. They definitely are not handling things like they should. I don’t believe the “sound system” story – Cordish kicked them out and Kansas City will pay because nobody is going to come here because of racist red neck Cordish! Wake up Cordish!

    It’s interesting that you criticize Ms. Pflaum’s journalistic integrity. While there can be no expectation of privacy online, you should understand that Facebook is a relatively closed environment. One chooses his/her friends and understands who will read the things you write. These statements were not necessarily intended to be public discourse, much less copied and pasted on to a public blog. As a journalist, you should realize that using her facebook status as fodder for a post is poor practice, comparable to overhearing something at a cocktail party and reporting it the next day without telling the person that you heard them.

    shouldn’t facebook be a place where one can blog freely? it wasn’t something she wrote for her paper.

    Slight topic digression:
    To claim a facebook posting by a user with more than 500 friends is akin to an overheard conversation is simply not accurate. I understand DLC was trying to support a point, but it shows a lack of understanding of social media and what a user is doing when they generate or accept that many friend requests.
    No user of facebook at that level is ever under the delusion that what they post is private

    The scandal is cordish and how they took the
    city for a big money ride. The whole thing was
    done without correct numbers. The study showed
    inflated numbers and now the revenue won’t
    cover the costs. So what happens? There needs
    to be an investigation on those numbers.
    The arena in independence will see the same
    thing. The consultant that is counting the
    revenue has been fired at 3 other arenas they
    have built. The numbers didn’t add up there
    and those cities will go into hock to pay for
    their arenas.
    Now lets see what aeg can do. This town had their
    fill of these guys years ago. There’s no major
    tenant and none in the future. So what do you
    get? An empty 300 million dollar facility
    that hosts old washed up rock bands.
    KC mayors and government drank the kool aid.
    They fell for those bad numbers. When the money
    comes due where will cordish and their people
    be? Probably swimming in red ink at their
    new pool above consentinos.
    Also, peterson will leave his mark on kc when
    arrowhead is finished and we can laugh at the
    deal peterson slammed down their throats.
    Wow…can we get someone who knows how to run
    a profitable business runfor mayor instead
    of barnes and funkhouser who looks like
    lurch on the adams family series.
    what a freaking mess.

    Hearne is a weasel who spies, eavesdrops, etc. His only sources are his drinking buddies. He’s too much of a pussy to even try and contact the people he attacks. In short, you can understan d why he was laid off. No ethics. Less talent.

    For example: Did Hearne try to reach Nadia? Doubt it. He would have mentioned it. Totally unprofessional. Totally hearne./

    I think that this is just another attempt by the Cordish company to push the focus off of themselves. I feel bad that Nadia is in the cross hairs of this new wave bullshit they are throwing. Looks like the P&L is gonna be in serious trouble when all is said and done. That, or they will be out of business. They should have never giving a publicly funded project to a private company with a history like Cordish’s. No matter what they say now, the world is looking and knows that your “district”, doesn’t want or represent some 30% of its citizens. If you check the surrounding neighborhoods of the power and white, non are predominantly white neighborhoods. Sounds like gentrification to me!?!

    I’ll say this for you; You don’t have any qualms about hamstringing people. In the case of Sanders, who is a bigger douche than you but not by much, it was obvious that you were just lashing out at anyone connected to your former employer. With Pflaum it’s pretty much the same case. That said, they should both be a little more prudent about what they post on line given their occupations. Never know when some bitter ex newsie will rat em out. Id chime in with the others about how the real story is what a big turd the P&L is, but Im guessing you’ll be playing nice with them, hoping for some of that ad revenue. Nicely played.

    My advice to the pitch: It’s time to take down Hearne. Do the hit piece that we all know is out there. He’s being asking for it. Someone needs to take him down a peg, and only the pitch has the balls to do it. The trust fund, the divorce, the strippers and the rest….do it. Or we can wait for the inevitable dashcam video.

    Nadia isn’t in the middle of any controversy, Skeletor Hearne is just trying to make one up. The P&L District vs. Jazzy Jeff is the news. And the last place anyone should look for any info is here.

    I think what Hearne has done with KC confidential is great. He has done some fantastic stories. He was probably just trying to get the story out because the Star didn’t! Don’t be hard on Hearne. How would you feel if you worked so long and hard for a company and they let you go and you were a news reporter with nowhere to go. Have some heart. These ex-Star reporters are just trying to do something and I personally really enjoy this site!! That is very unfair. Keep up the good work Hearne and don’t listen to negative downer people!

    Hearne is a joke, this site is a joke and it serves as great example of all the pettiness in KC.

    That is whats holding this city back, not Cordish (though I despise them), not Nadia spouting off on FB (though that wasn’t a great idea), its the petty, gossiping bitches like Hearne who are just bitter about what they have lost or what they thing they ‘deserve’

    The reason no one has tried to take Hearne down a couple notches yet Jim is that there really isn’t much lower to take the guy, everyone sees him for what he is and its just kinda pathetic. Come on, a gossip columnist in KC?! Does it get any lower?
