Tony: Do Hot Chicks Have A Place On Hearne’s Blog?

I want to put it to you d-bags (hehe). We need to talk about hot chicks on Hearne’s site for a moment.

Finding photos of famous bikini models in various states of undress is sort of my modus operandi when it comes to blogging. And as I talk with Hearne I always try to impart a bit of my wisdom on the subject of blogs because it’s something I do pretty well.

Unlike dead tree media writing, blogging is supposed to be more of a conversation: So let’s “talk.”

Here’s the backstory . . . A prudish local businessman that was interested in advertising complained about the sexy photos and the d-bag backed out. I think it was nothing more than a lame excuse for being a cheapskate but then again I have nothing but pejorative terms in mind when it comes to Kansas City businessmen both big and small – Mostly because they don’t hire enough minorities and they feel so entitled to public sympathy and subsidy for starting a moneymaking venture on their own.

Even more background on this Internet debate between censorship and editing: There’s actually been a history of backlash against booty pics on KC Confidential. A rather smokin’ hot friend of Hearne didn’t like babe photos and from what I hear: PR dude extraordinaire Will Gregory reads my TKC blog under his bed sheets because he doesn’t want people noticing that he seemingly digs the babes over on my blog. That criticism along with a few more random comments from fans of Hearne’s site are bringing this issue to the forefront and up to the judgment of you bags.

In any event, it was a criticism that Hearne took seriously because the site’s had a great deal of success selling ads for his place thanks to years accumulating contacts and friendships with just about every important person in this town. And nearly every biz that’s been contacted has bought an ad.

Still, blogging without sexy bitches just isn’t as much fun for me. Note: No, I don’t want to read any crap about copyrights given that the Internets is mostly full of stolen material and my legal “fair use” research outweighs your armchair analysis and c-list education.

So, tomorrow I’m talking with Hearne about including sexy, famous and scantily clad broads widely available on the Internet AFTER the jump. A minor inconvenience but still a way to keep things saucy. Because making my writing interesting enough to attract a crowd on my own would be far too much work.

    I’m confused? Where are all the ad’s you’re talking about? Looks pretty much like the same cast of advertisers from the start up. If there’s more I’m not seeing it. Tony, your whole iden-titty is HOT CHICK photos. You give that up, that’s like Walter Cronkite not sayin’ “That’s the way it is.”

    I think it’s laughable that you say you want to have a “conversation” when, as near as I can tell, you have never once responded to any of the comments or criticism left on KC Confidential about your work. Admittedly, some of the critiques offered about your “work” are just mean and don’t deserve much response, but you ignore even the most cogent of commentary. And you want to have a “conversation”?

    As far as my “c-list education” goes, well, I guess it makes perfect sense that you’d find an opportunity to criticize your readers even in discussing a subject that manages to be almost imperceptible in terms of importance to KCC’s readership but still, apparently, tremendously critical to you. In any case, I will put my law degree up against yours and argue that your use of copyrighted images for the sole stated purpose of driving traffic to your badly-written and ill-informed rants disguised as “columns” does NOT constitute fair use. You’re using the images for commercial gain and not for any type of commentary. I might not have figured that out except for the fact that you, you know, ADMITTED it in the freaking post.

    Regardless, Hearne, I vote (to the extent I have any say) in favor of you doing whatever is more likely to get rid of Tony. If denying him the right to use pictures of bikini babes is more likely to drive him away, then please do that.

    Everyone knows Tony likes to show the ladies. Hearne knew that. This was not a secret. So WTF is the big deal? Let it go. It is like TV or Radio, turn the station if you don’t like it. No one is forcing you to read the blog.

    I think Hearne and Tony should add hot GUYS – give all your lady readers some eye candy! Why are we being sexist with just the chick pics?

    Keep the pictures. As far as I know, this is the only place on the Internet where you can access pictures of scantily dressed women.

    Well stated Gavin.
    Tony is the literary equivalent of the octo-mom. Stop paying attention and he’ll go away. Otherwise, we can all use him as a reason to feel better about ourselves.

    VERY true about no conversation.

    Tonya, the goofball, knows she is nothing but a troll, typing insulting BS ONLY hoping to insite trouble, but I bet she fears even reading responses…she is nothing but a fkn pussy, she does not have the balls to reply to real people,,,,,,

    Tonya hides under her desk, typing on her laptop, like the racist Nazi pussy she is.

    Hearne, tony is ruining your site. Do your other bloggers read this person’s idiocy? Do you read it?

    If you want some douchebag to have a voice, let him post in the comments like the rest of us.

    For what it’s worth I stopped checking out KCConfidential.com during breaks at work when Tony’s pictures started popping up. I have nothing against them and still read the site at home, but didn’t want people walking by my desk to think I was visiting a site that would warrant a trip to HR.

    I also have firefox and see no ads. I say make Craig Glazer pay for all ads as he loves the girl pictures. I have more concern about language then pictures. I sometimes can not access things due to language.

    So I assume the prudish local businessman doesn’t advertise in THE PITCH. Do the full page ads in THE STAR for erectile dysfunction ads not bother him? Guessing not since he probably takes them. Network or cable TV isn’t so pristine anymore is it? Does the 700 Club take ads? All the pieces of the puzzle don’t provide a complete picture. And really, are Tony’s pics any different from what you see in Maxim,Esquire or even Vanity Fair? He’s not giving us nipples and full blown vagina pics. If you wanna be an equal opportunity offender then put up some beefcake shots for the ladies…and gay men, but you’re gonna need some fatties and maybe some hairy-bears for the guys and gals that roll that way. Do you put up kiddie pics for the NAMBLA members? Stats suggest that there is at least one pedophile who frequently visits this site. What about the necrophiliacs and beastiality types? Seems to me the best thing to do is tell the prude to go pound it and let Tony be Tony.
