KANSAS CITY DEAD TREE MEDIA DEMISE CONTINUES: PITCH DIDN'T EVEN WRITE THEIR COVER STORY THIS WEEK!!!
Hard times for alternative print journalism continue as one of the best weekly newspapers in Kansas City's history seems to be struggling.
This passage preceded the cover story this week for The Pitch:
Editor's Note: The Intercept, an online magazine dedicated to investigative journalism, published this story on June 7. Because its depth surpasses what many Kansas City media outlet has devoted to this case, The Pitch is republishing it in print this week (with minimal editing for space), in cooperation with The Intercept. Read and share the complete story, and see video at theintercept.com
We linked this last week but it's worth linking again since The Pitch is reblogging it, in print form . . .
Tased in the Chest for 23 Seconds, Dead for 8 Minutes, Now Facing a Lifetime of Recovery
Now . . .
Call this MSM taking over local news OR realize that "journalism" continues to evolve in Kansas City and The Pitch not only sabotaged their website, relies too much on social media but now has given up writing their own stories for the moment. Seriously, this isn't hateration, we hope the mag can recover as it has so many times before over the years . . . The Pitch is truly one of Kansas City's most important publications unfairly targeted because if it's strong editorial voice that has endured year after year and deserves to survive the digital age.
