VillageVoiceCover1030On the same day that The Raw Story announced the hiring of former Village Voice EIC Tony Orgeta as its new executive editor, Capital New York’s Joe Pompeo revealed that one of Ortega’s former charges has been laid off.

He tweeted several times leading up to last night that the union threatens to strike every three years, and every three years they reach a deal.

Well thank god for this, because there was no way we were going to remember to check that Tumblr each day.
