Although the Reader is often characterized as San Diego's "progressive" or "liberal" weekly paper, editor and publisher Jim Holman insists it represents no one viewpoint. "Some use the word offbeat" to describe the paper, he said. "It's not a word I would use, but I would agree with it." The free tabloid's common use of strong language and off-the-wall writing styles, and its willingness to regularly tackle subjects rarely covered by the local dailies clearly place it far from the mainstream.
