Not Comics: Village Voice Union On Strike Causes The Baffler To Recall Their Fall From Grace

Here. Alt-Weeklies were once a fantastic home for comics -- they're still the home for some -- in part because they did well enough to commit to their publication over the long term. That article leading into the older piece on their doom makes me want to read a different piece on the management of those big media companies. I think conventional wisdom is that when a media conglomerate takes over for papers they make a bad situation worse but I'd like to see someone challenge that and maybe go after their moves directly. I know I feel that the stewardship of my hometown daily has suffered immensely for its corporate ownership above and beyond what's been done with content.
