Evans leaving as new owner takes over ITB, Weekly

Mark B. Evans, one of the city's most respected journalists, said Friday that he's leaving his post as editor of Inside Tucson Business, which is being sold to 10/13 Communications, a chain with a history of cutting newsroom staff. Evans said that he refused to apply for a post with the new owner, but won't comment on why until after his term of employment ends April 30.

This is going to get me some heat, but I don’t care…The Tucson Weekly is garbage. I lost interest after they stopped running the uncensored ads, which is the only thing I ever picked it up for. Because of the horrible slant and lack of any objectivity whatsoever, I think our community would be so much better off without it. “Alternative” in this case means alternative to good.

What kind of paper spends ever issue cheerleading for the left and pushing their agenda in your face, and then names Jon Justice best morning radio windbag every year? Where in the world is the logic?

Mark Evans’s departure probably indicates both his journalistic integrity and its imminent erosion under the new ownership.
