Comments from SF weekly[edit]

Hi. I'm Jake Swearingen, the web editor at SF Weekly. There's several factual errors in the article, which I've taken the liberty of fixing up, including updating our physical address, updating the information about our publisher, changing a few style matters (we're SF Weekly, not the SF Weekly), updating our online offerings, and including more recent awards we've won.

More broadly, would it be possible to get an outside Wiki editor to take a look and making this more neutral in tone? Currently, the article reads as particularly one-sided. The Controversies seems excessive, and the information can be related throughout the article.

It's questionable whether the Armenian controversy is still a notable incident in SF Weekly's past, and the quote from a former web editor seems extraneous.

It would be great if statements from VVM owner Michael Lacey could be included in the section on the Guardian lawsuit. Here is the the memo from Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

Finally, the sentence "and enjoys mixed reviews by the Bay Area community" seems puzzling. Surely any media organization in the Bay Area received mixed reviews? A citation, at least, should be included. Thanks for all the work the community has already put into this. (Jsweari (talk) 00:19, 7 July 2011 (UTC))

HQ[edit]

I'm trying to figure out when the HQ moved to the new location. In January 2011 it was still at China Basin Landing WhisperToMe (talk) 07:03, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
