SF Weekly gloats at the Bay Guardian’s attempt to sell itself

Friday, April 20, 2012

imageAnd it isn’t even noon yet. Now that news is out that the Bay Guardian may be trying to sell itself to the Canadian publisher who owns the Examiner, Village Voice Media nemesis SF Weekly has a piece on its website that pokes plenty of fun. It’s adorned with art (above) from the Weekly’s Bruce Brugmann disparagement archive. Here’s a sample from Benjamin Wachs’ post:
For decades, the Guardian and its staff have insulted the Weekly and its writers because we were purchased by an out-of-town corporation. Now that the Guardian is seriously entertaining the idea of selling to a corporate interest group led by out-of-towners ... well, this is the foie gras of Schadenfreude. The delicious hypocrisy is so thick it's spreadable, yet it melts in your mouth like ice cream.
