KANSAS CITY AREA SMALL BIZ TRASHES PITCH SCALED DOWN 'BEST OF' ISSUE!!!



This year's 'Best Of' issue from the Pitch is not only earning a great deal of gleeful social media sharing but also some EPIC push back from local small biz left out of the fun.

To wit . . .

CHECK OUT THIS KANSAS CITY METRO AREA SMALL BIZ THROWING THE PITCH IN THEIR RECYCLING DUMPSTER AFTER A LONGSTANDING SNUB!!!

Here's the word . . .

"The Pitch Kansas City you keep bringing your reading material to my restaurant for us to hand out for you, but you don't even know that we exist so that just means everything you bring to us goes right into our recycling bin."

We'll highlight this biz in a later post but it's a beloved local shop that has been around for more than half a century . . . What's important here is the reaction from small biz who OBVIOUSLY feel slighted by the much smaller Pitch promo effort that used to provide a shout out to a broader cross-section of Kansas City biz but now is forced to scale down amid harsh times.

You decide . . .

Buy a fucking ad.

Who calls it "The Pitch Kansas City?"

Sounds like someone from Croatia is trying to scam you into running something phony baloney, Tony!!!

If it wasn't for the fact you bite on this sort of bullshit constantly we'd be worried!

Phony is as phony does.

Negro on the left. White woman on the right.

Miscenegation is a curse on our land.

Charles Ferruzza was about the only reason to read the Pitch. He's gone, and now so are many his former readers.

Tony thanks for pointing this out. Race mixing is a big issue, and as you know we take great pains to point out every wayward white woman (also known as "mudsharks," commonly) who may have fallen under the negro influence. Not only do they need to be excoriated from the body politic, the scorn we heap shouls also serve as a warning tonother whites who choose to associate and/or breed with the subhuman species known as the negroid.

Yes! Name the business. I will support it in the spirit of 1488.

Everyone knows that magazine "best of" awards are not independently audited and are totally manipulated by the sales people or editor at any magazine. They are not what readers voted on.

Negroes are a danger to white women especially and whites in general. The Pitch should not be glorifying them by putting them, even in photos, in situations they don't belong.

According to the latest FBI statistics (ATTENTION TONY - THIS IS A REAL SOURCE OF VERIFIABLE STATISTICS - TRY IT WITH YOUR STREETCAR CLAIMS) white-on-black killings spiked by 22.5 percent between 2014 and 2015 after years of mostly trending downward. Killings of whites by African Americans increased by 12.2 percent, while black-on-black and white-on-white killings increased only slightly—by just 7.9 percent and 3.5 percent, respectively—between 2014 and 2015, after mostly falling since 2008. Overall, more than twice as many black-on-white homicides occurred compared with white-on-black homicides.

Homicides in which the offender and victim were of the same race have vastly outnumbered interracial homicides for the past ten years. FBI data show that while 500 black-on-white killings and 229 white-on-black killings were reported in 2015, 2,574 homicides were committed by whites against other whites, and 2,380 by blacks against blacks.

Isn't that staggering? Black people are a threat to humanity!!!!

When the Pitch publishes a Churches Chicken 50 percent off coupon I'll take a look. Until then it lands in the bird cage.

FACT : The PITCH went to utter Shit , sometime ago

They no longer catered to real issues or reporting, they just wanted to kind of report on the latest Bar & Night club happenings and poorly run mis managed restaurants and here today, gone tomorrow eatery's.

They decided to quit reporting on any real important local issues like they used to do back in the 1990's era.

Have no idea who took over the pitch - but - they definitely ran it into the ground in a very short period of time !

I have an old issue laying around from like 1995 or 1997 and theres a stark difference between then and now, Big Time !!!

Shame too, because it had potential to be a really good alternative news magazine or paper, besides the Degenerate liberal bullshit that main stream media wants to feed everybody now days with their Young, Naïve, Clueless Dipshit reporters & planted from who knows where news anchors that are phony as shit !

Ohhh well, nothin' like runnin a business into the ground !!!

Good Bye Pitch,,, you were fun while it was good & well managed, not anymore, your HISTORY !!!!!

The only thing coming from the Pitch any more is the sound of it's death rattle. The so called Best of issue is a bigger con game of false facts than the street car rider counts from the crew at 12th and Oak.

6:11 - We know ya meant to key "...sounds like a CLINTON"--not "...someone from Croatia".

Yep, that Arkysaw couple would phony up a story good. Remember, retracted lies: "I did not have sex with that woman..." AND "...dodging sniper fire..."?

Plus, your first line ordering to buy an ad gives off a Pay-To-Play aroma. Hmmmmm, how ya gonna "win" if ya don't pay?

In the 1990's, the local owner sold The Pitch to a group out of Colorado. They brought in a whole bunch of alcoholics to run the thing, and the eventual result is what we see now. It is SO SAD! Our daughter worked for them as the singles editor. She was 21 years old and married, but everybody seemed to get along and make money. The only issue she had is that she had trouble getting space because of all the advertising. Can you imagine that today? At the time, she held "singles events" for those who were interested. Now it is all national and consists of sex lines and hookers. What a difference! Times change, but sometimes it is at a loss.
