Former Observer scribe Choire Sicha has been watching changes over at the salmon paper with seeming concern. First he noted that, with the arrival of newish editor Kyle Pope, the staff had taken a decidedly more dudey turn than previous ("sort of a fruity, faggy, Jewy") eras. And now Sicha notes that, of the sixteen staff departures since Pope took over, twelve were by women or gay men. There is now only one female editor, he reports, and only one gay man on the entire staff. (Pope insists, somewhat mysteriously, that there is "more than one.") Can you imagine, a New York media institution with only one gay? That's like having a strip joint with only one nipple! [Awl]
