Here's a morsel of alt weekly-vs.-alt weekly news to fill your belly: last Tuesday local alt weekly SF Bay Guardian was "granted its motion to intercept the income of the SF Weekly." The Weekly, if you recall, were branded as a bunch of predatory pricing hooligans against the Guardian in 2008, with the latter publication receiving a $21 million settlement.
What does this new motion mean? Well, it means, according to SFBG editor Tim Redmond, that they can "seize the rent that the SF Weekly's subtenant pays to the paper." (In November, the Guardian auctioned off vehicles belonging to the SF Weekly in an effort of get some of their settlement money.)
It also means that the recent public peace between the two SF alt-weeklies has come to an end.
