New 'Voice' Editor Already Pissy, Irritable

We got some rumblings from inside the Village Voice about last week's porno-hooker-classified-ads cover; it was intended to be a commentary on how some weeklies are pulling the R-rated ads, but the staff didn't much care for it. And the paper never explained the weird little in-joke to its readers. And now, uh oh! Sounds like new Voice editor Tony Ortega has a bit of an attitude problem just like old Voice editor David Blum's! Says the Observer: "[S]everal staff members had expressed dismay at the cover, and... Mr. Ortega brought up the issue at an editorial meeting Monday. 'He got really defensive,' the employee said. 'He said if you're going to be offended by something like this, then you shouldn't work here.'" Also: There are pretty much no gays left at the Voice. Is it a coincidence?
