Tejal Rao and Nick Pinto Quit Village Voice


By Chris O'Shea Comment

Mere days after The Village Voice fired Michael Musto and others, the paper has lost two more writers. The only difference is that Tejal Rao and Nick Pinto quit. Rao and Pinto both tweeted that they have resigned from the Voice, making the paper even more hollow than it already is.

Rao’s departure is particularly awkward for the Voice because when it announced the “restructuring” that ousted Musto, Robert Sietsema and Michael Feingold, it boasted of Rao’s employment there. Oops.

In related “The Village Voice is Crap” news, Musto told HuffPost Live that the mood at the Voice was “dour” in the days leading up to his firing. Wonder what the mood is now? Grim? Sullen? Depressed? Gloomy?
