New York Times Asks: Is The Pitch Kaput???

Check this scary missive and a bit of trend-spotting regarding the downfall of our favorite form of Dead Tree Media. Although not KC-specific, this is an important question that applies to KCMO and the quandary is too often casually dismissed by hipsters with very little biz savvy or willingness to tuck in their shirts while our favorite weekly keeps scaling back.

Of course they are over. I can find someone to fuck on backpage.com

I'll miss Charles Ferruzza's reviews, Dan Savage's advice, and the occasional good article, but other than that the Pitch has come to resemble Gertrude Stein's opinion of Oakland. There's no "there" there.

I read it for the restaurant review mainly. Once in a while though there is a great investigative article.

The New York Times will do just fine and most likely so will weeeklies like the Pitch.
I'm not so sure about the Star, however.

Thanks to all the politicians who can find a good whore in there any more.

I lost interest in the Pitch when they stopped carrying the Tom Tomorrow cartoon.

Seriously. It was the best thing in the Pitch.

I liked it when it was locally owned. As soon as the drunks and drug addicts from Denver took over, it really suffered and declined. Our daughter worked there when it was sold, and she finally quit in disgust when the whole staff would show up after lunch completely snockered.
