Think you're factually wrong calling it a jingle-writing company, but that's no surprise in The Stranger. And reading the publisher's candid note, he was headed out before the sale, seeing he was going to drop in salary after the sale/tradeoffs. But writing it up on Slog as a big conspiracy reads much better when you're not interested in facts.

From The Weekly to Cheezburger. Oh man, from bad to worse.

Is it so wrong calling ReelWorld a jingle-writing company?

I just googled 'reelworld', and this is what came up:
Creates radio station jingles and production elements that cover the spectrum of today's radio.
I mean, sure, they do some other stuff too, but that's one of the four business cores listed on their homepage.

G'wan, try it for yourself.

And sure, who cares if Seely was in fact leaving before the Sound Pub deal? The end result is still good.

I think some people are forgetting the intra-media rivalry that Seattle used to have when both the print dailies, PI and Times, used to be center-right and center, as opposed to the far-right current Seattle Times and the center-right Weekly we have now.

@5. One of four, right. Not the sole core business, as The Stranger wrongly states.

And Will, center-right?

You're confusing The Stranger's opinionated writings - to sell a point of view - with the Weekly's advocacy journalism, to tell a full story.

Guess if you're thorough and fair and not pumping your fist on a story, you must be a righty.

That makes The Stranger arguably more liberal, and fun. But why do I find myself laughing so much at its "serious" reporting.

The Weekly's advocacy journalism? Gimme a break. Their "news" section is a joke, and they sacked their one good remaining investigative reporter, Rick Anderson, months ago.

Why do you find yourself laughing? Perhaps its the nitrous.
