The only Clinton Missouri newspaper is the Clinton Daily Democrat. It has been in publication since 1868 and is published daily. It contains mostly local news from the Golden Valley area and some smaller communities such as Calhoun, Deepwater, Montrose, and Urich to name a few. Like a lot of small town newspapers it contains local church and school news. Also, unlike many larger metropolitan papers, it contains the police and sheriff reports were you can find out what the neighbors have been up to.
The Clinton newspaper also has a section on local school sports. They even cover some recreational league play. In addition, they have a local classified section and a local real estate section. The real estate section is comprised mostly of four by four ads placed by agents.
The Clinton Daily Democrat also publishes a weekly paper called the Kayo. It is primarily a paper containing a classified section, and the rest is advertisements. The Sac Osage Publishing has recently begun producing a similar paper called the Henry County Buyers Guide. It is basically the same format as the Kayo only slimmer. Also, the Kayo is a hand thrown paper; where as, the Buyers Guide is all mailed.
Many of the residents of Clinton Missouri and the surrounding communities also get their news from the Kansas City Star. Clinton is half way between Springfield and Kansas City; however, the majority of town prefers the Star.
