The Kansas City Star

The Kansas City Star is a McClatchy newspaper based in Kansas City, Missouri, in the United States. Published since 1880, the paper is the recipient of eight Pulitzer Prizes. The Star is most notable for its influence on the career of President Harry Truman and as the newspaper where a young Ernest Hemingway honed his writing style and for being central to government-mandated divestiture of radio and television outlets by newspaper concerns in the late 1950s.

Famous quotes containing the words kansas and/or city:

    Since the Civil War its six states have produced fewer political ideas, as political ideas run in the Republic, than any average county in Kansas or Nebraska.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    O City city, I can sometimes hear
    Beside a public bar in Lower Thames Street,
    The pleasant whining of a mandolin
    And a clatter and a chatter from within
    Where fishmen lounge at noon.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
