So, who will train these callow tykes in how to pretend they know the Burgh? Lexi? That's a joke. She was never that good at the PG. Targeting City Paper (and not UpGruv) requires reporters willing to adopt the alt. weekly posture of acting cooler and more knowledgeable than everyone else, even when they don't know much. Honestly, I don't know if I'd want to piss away a dime aiming writers at the toothless tiger that is Pittsburgh City Paper (a.k.a. "The Wednesday Waste"). Their main audience consists of liberal activists and artsy types. Their other audience: artists, graffiti painters, songwriters, poets, filmmakers who want publicity and have struck out trying to interest the PG and Trib.
