C-Ville Weekly: News or Navel Gazing?

legal_recruiter writes: I know that it’s hard to write 70 pages of stuff every week (especially with all the other news outlets in town), but C-Ville Weekly has failed to justify its existence over the past few months. Is it news? Is it entertainment? Does it matter? For most stories in the C-Ville Weekly, the answer to all three is a resounding “no.” [This week’s cover article] on whether Charlottesville is “Southern,” is stupid and has what can charitably be described as a mishmash of quotations on our town. Wait a minute: unsophisticated analysis of stale news and Sabato quotes? The C-Ville Weekly has turned into… the Cavalier Daily!

I’m sure that I’m just begging for an angry phone call in the morning by posting this, but I think it’s an interesting question.
