Examiner to shed its right-wing image; layoffs loom

Friday, December 2, 2011

New Examiner president-publisher-co-owner Todd imageVogt tells SF Weekly’s Erin Sherbert that “the ultra right-wing Christian conservative slant” that billionaire former owner Philip Anschutz “insisted on having is gone -- it didn't ever have a place here" and has told the staff as much.

"I told them that every day the paper has to reflect the readers. We will not be a political stump for anyone or any cause, but I never understood, from a business standpoint, why it made sense to run five days in a row anti-Obamacare [editorials], whether the readers in San Francisco support the president or don't -- it didn't make sense."

And now for some bad news: He says to expect layoffs.
