So, the last reason I ever had to visit their website is gone. Dumb move, but good for him.
Last week, top editors at the Village Voice resigned in protest when they learned that management wanted them to lay off several members of their already-decimated staff. This morning, those layoffs came down. They’re not pretty.
We hear that executives from the Voice’s parent company flew in for today’s massacre. Michael Musto, the Voice’s nightlife columnist and most high profile remaining staffer, has been let go, as was rumored last week. (There had apparently been some talk of Musto’s column hanging on in some form, but that does not seem to have worked out.)
