We Won Another RFT Web Award

Thanks to the Riverfront Times for once again honoring us with a RFT Web Award. We even showed up to the award show, making a rare public appearance to meet with the fans and lean on a wall while tweeting jokes that never did get to show up on the big Twitter wall thing they had. Damn censors. The show was quite the spectacle. RFT’s Chad Garrison really took to the role of host (think James Franco at the Oscars) which only turned out to the be pre-show, as the impromptu freaky dance party that followed the awards portion really stole the show, and cost us a few grand in therapy ones those memories un-repress themselves in 10 years.

The RFT Throws Their Panties at Weird St. Louis Rap Video Guy

Riverfront Times Takes Down BestofStLouis.com

The site BestofStLouis.com is gone. There isn’t even a traditional “It’s over” page…it’s just gone. The domain now goes to an all-ad page. What happened? Lawyers and copyright law happened, and the heat came from the Riverfront Times. As we’re sure you’re aware, each year the Riverfront Times puts out its “Best of St. Louis” issue and because of that believes it holds the rights to the term “Best of St. [Read More]

Mr. Dana Loesch Calls RiverFront Times to Complain About Their Correct Story

Mr. Dana Loesch, aka Chris Loesch, a frequent, but pseudonymed, commenter on all posts concerning Dana on this very site, has quite a reputation around town of appearing like Beetlejuice when someone mentions his wife’s name three times. No, it doesn’t matter if they are “attacking” her or just reporting, he still appears. The most recent sighting was the Riverfront Times where…well, I’ll let RFT reporter Chad Garrison tell you: [Read More]

Hinman, who has been at the RFT for over five years, has been the fingers at the keyboard for some of their more memorable posts in recent years including the recent piece on fan-of-the-site Dana Loesch and, one of our favorites, a article entitled: _Kevin Slaten’s Head Is About to Explode: The exiled sports-talk radio ranter needs to get some things off his chest_.

RFT Writer Gets Sucker Punched in the Loop

We at Punching Kitty love being in the city during the spring. Walking down the streets of the Looop, with that cool nip in the air that makes it so you can’t decide if you should have brought your coat. Looking at the shine of the streetlights coming off the rain puddles on still on the streets from the night below takes your focus to the point where you don’t even see the little bitch about to sucker punch you as you walk past the Subway.

Punching Kitty Featured in Riverfront Times

Hey St. Louis bloggers that didn’t get featured by the Riverfront Times! At best you are only the 14th best blogger in St. Louis. That must suck for you. We are anywhere between the 1st and the 13th (must be on the 1st side of things though because I mean…jesus. Just look at us. Pure. Sex.) Punching Kitty is St. Louis’ answer to Gawker, a kindred sprit in snarkiness, with a special affinity for media folly. [Read More]
