Bobos In the Village

When it comes to David Brooks’ Bourgeois-Bohemian formula, the Village Voice has evidently decided that the former is more important than the latter. Or as the Rhetorican writes:

Bloomberg: Village Voice publisher loses $15.9 million judgment for ad price-fixing.  May have to file for bankruptcy.

From the people who bring you the Village Voice: Price-fixing.  One of the nastiest “capitalist pig” moves in which a business can engage.

Well, it’s not like the newspaper lacked for hypocrisy prior to this news.

Update: The Rhetorican updates his post to note that the Voice is disputing the story; I thought leftwing postmodernism allowed everyone to have their own truth, as Jim McGreevy would say
