Robert Christgau Fired From Village Voice

It's hard to think of anyone more linked to the Village Voice than Christgau. My first thought: how terrible. My second thought: maybe I can get a job? No, not really. My second thought was: what about the annual Pazz & Jop poll? Will it be fired too?

The bastards are destroying this paper. The film coverage is turning into a collection of shithead hacks from the New Times stable of idiot mediocrities. Alex Rodriguez on the cover this week and the political coverage is slowly being gutted? Time for someone to think about starting a new progressive weekly written by New Yorkers for New Yorkers.

Do it! Do it! The IRAs can do group coverage of every film -- bickering and fighting and cmocking each other's opinions in a revolutionary approach to film criticism that will change the world.
