Defanging the Village Voice?

Posted by on February 9 at 12:50 PM

SF Bay Guardian’s Tim Redmond depicts a chilling scenario for venerable liberal alt weekly Village Voice. Mike Lacey, new owner of Village Voice Media (the post-merger term for New Times and VV), recently met with VV editorial staff and laid down the law: no more Bush-bashing commentary/criticism, more hard news and long-form human-interest stories.

Redmond writes:

[Lacey] also insulted the entire news department by saying Voice reporters “need to stop being stenographers” and, the sources told the Guardian, warned the staff “to be ready to say goodbye to some of your friends.”
