‘In Newsweekly’ Wins Injunction

HX Media and its lawyers must be celebrating today. “A Boston judge issued an injunction against a new Boston LGBT newspaper on Monday
after the parent company of troubled weekly In Newsweekly filed suit against its former associate publisher for allegedly stealing his former employer’s advertising database for his new publication. Bill Berggren, publisher of N’Touch New England, allegedly solicited ads for the publication while still working at In Newsweekly.” Berggren’s backstage machinations reportedly led HX Media CEO Matt Bank to give him the ax.

    HX may have won this battle, but they haven’t won the war.

    Matthew Bank and his cabal of vultures will not be happy for long.

    HX is full of you know what. They’re being anti-competetive because they know their paper is now a piece of trash. They didn’t pay their staff, and their paper gets worse every week. Berggren worked there for years, they said they knew he was looking to leave in December, and they let him remain with keys to the joint until January. What the hell were they thinking?

    If last week’s N’Touch is any indication, HX doesn’t have anything to worry about! The average high school newspaper has higher standards for journalism: its poorly written, shows no sign of having been edited (there are even spelling errors on the cover), and is downright ugly. If there’s one thing we can expect from a gay newspaper is good design. What a waste!

    HX is about to rechristen IN Newsweekly as the New England Blade.

    Should make a nifty fish wrapper!

    I’ll stick with the blogs. And, occasionally, Bay Windows.

    And now N’Touch is out of business….oh darn…guess you’re not reporting on that because it’s not mean or dispiriting to HX.

    Bitter queen.
