Gov. Greitens slams KC Star, ‘liberal media’, on Facebook, defends spending on special session

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens says when it comes to numbers, the Kansas City Star has it all wrong. In a Facebook post Tuesday, July 25, Greitens claims the Star used numbers provided by the Democratic Party, not actual costs that could have been provided by staff at the State Capitol.

“Want to see how the liberal media works with Democrats to create fake news in Missouri?,” the post begins. “We called a pro-life special session to protect pregnancy care centers and promote women’s health.

“The Democratic Party and groups like the National Abortion Rights Action League ran ads claiming that the special session would cost $20,000 per day.

“Here’s the thing: That’s not true. It’s not even close to true.”

Greitens says The Kansas City Star used the Democratic Party’s talking points and printed them as news, reporting that this summer’s special session would cost taxpayers $1.2 million.

“They did zero research. Even one phone call to the House or Senate would have given them the real numbers,” Greitens said. “Instead, they printed a lie from the Democratic Party and misled hundreds of people.”

Greitens countered that the special session might cost as much as $80,000, what he calls “money well spent to protect life and safety in the state of Missouri.”

He says requests to correct the story have gone unanswered by The Star, and that he understands that “some liberal newspapers have a bias against conservatives. I don’t expect that we will ever get the benefit of the doubt or even a fair shake.”
