Zinester Made Good Gone Bad

Jeff Koyen resigned as editor of the NY Press today. He gave this statement to Gawker:

Publisher Chris Rohland is a spineless alt-weekly weenie. I can't blame him, really. He has a wife and kids, and a nice home in New Jersey. He wants nothing more than to punch the clock and get his paychecks. Owner David Unger, who is the paper's ultimate owner, is similarly spineless. They want New York Press to be "advertiser-friendly"; they "don't want controversy."

That's their choice. But I don't need to be party to such weenieness. And I won't be sent to my room without dessert. Hence, I resigned this morning.



This was the last straw. Aw, reminds of the old days of Crank.

Good luck to you, Jeff!
