SLAP FIGHT!!! PITCH TAKES A SHOT AT THE KANSAS CITY STAR THIS WEEK!!!
Among cowtown newsies, there is nothing more rewarding, fun and pointless than a Kansas City media slap fight.
And now . . .
CHECK THE LATEST PITCH COVER CALLING OUT THE OLD SCHOOL KANSAS CITY STAR!!!
Sadly, the article isn't online yet . . . But we like the image.
Still, even though I haven't read it, I can't help but agree with everything horrible that anybody says about The Star.
Personal note: I thought it was really childish when my least favorite Latina Mary "Dirty" Sanchez gave me the cold shoulder at a recent newsie event. I was ready to hold the door open for her and everything. She looked really nice in a strange cocktail dress that was made for a broad 20 years younger yet still I was all prepared to be chivalrous and call it bygones for just a bit . . . The sentiment was ruined with a rude turnaround gesture by the barely Latina babe. TKC is a juggernaut among blogs but Tony is not made of stone, cut me and I bleed. Sniffle.
Anyhoo . . .
Of course we love a Kansas City slap fight but let's remember a few things . . .
- The Pitch has suffered a precipitous drop in their online rankings after a move to consolidate all of their blogs and take most of their posting to Facebook.
- It's kind of a sausage fest @ The Pitch. The new music gal is nice but she's having a hard time earning respect among the longtime denizens of the local music scene. I'm not surprised if they make her get the coffee given her low level of access around this cowtown. I haven't seen her yet, is she hot?
- Picking up the pitch right now . . . It's under 40 pages this week again.
And so . . . We appreciate this Dead Tree Media slapfight but we know it ends with all newspaper, even the trendy hip ones, going the way of the dodo.
