Fired Up! Missouri offered up this nearly line-by-line analysis recently of a story in The Kansas City Star. The blog claims that the Star watered down the McClatchy Company's original newspaper piece because the paper's "editorial staff feels the need to protect 'the Republican-controlled Missouri General Assembly' from exposure to facts reported on and published by its parent company."

This morning, the Pitch sent a request for a response to the Star's Steve Kraske, who contributed to the article, as well as its original author, a correspondent for McClatchy. Kraske declined to comment, but if McClatchy responds, you'll see it posted here. -- Eric Barton
