Looks Like Both The SF Examiner And SF Weekly Are Really Fucked Up
THE OTHER DAY I asked if anyone still reads the Examiner--both the print and on-line edition. The inference was clear: the Examiner and its sister publication, SF Weekly, are having massive issues and according to those in the know, their future is murky.
Now we know the shit has hit the fan.
A publisher that appears to be out of control. Reporters leaving en masse --like this one. And a dwindling editorial staff that apparently was fucked over by the increasingly "ballistic" big suit, Glenn Zuehls--who seems hellbent on destroying the already marginalized two media companies in town.
The Examiner used to be relevant about a thousand years ago when Hearst owned the paper and put out a decent afternoon fish wrap --of course back then, before newspapers began dying, people actually read a newspaper ---not so much these days as everything is digital, goddammit!
As for SF Weekly, I like their restaurant reviews--other than that, I'm not an enthusiast --oh, spank me!
Bottom line: Those of you that read these guys you may want to cherish your time as it appears, they are running out of time.
