"What the Village Voice did will ultimately damage the paper more than Jim Hoberman — you can’t buy that kind of stature and credibility. But the Voice seems doomed to oblivion anyway: in the last few months it’s shrunk to the size of a neighborhood shopper. They still have some good freelancers there and I hope they can hang on."
