The Village Voice was once a fairly decent paper, that did some actual journalism. Even won a few awards.
But ever since the New Times freaks bought them
, they've been sliding into irrelevance.
(You would not believe some of the rumors I've heard involving New Times and their founders. They sound like complete raving lunatics.
They're constantly locked in mortal combat with an equally-crazy Phoenix asshole, sheriff Joe Arpaio.)
They're also currently engaged in a stupid feud
with Ashton Kutcher. Plus the David Bruce McMahan stuff. It just gets worse every year.
(BTW: according to their archenemy, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, they may be
on the verge of bankruptcy. Oops.
Looks like the dead-tree business is getting kinda grim.)This post has been edited by EricBarbour: Sat 2nd July 2011, 9:09am
