Since their renaissance in the 1960s counterculture, alternative papers have thrived on free-spirited journalism and a libertarian advertising philosophy. Strip clubs, escorts and, lately, medical marijuana emporiums, filled countless pages with their ads. The ads might have provoked occasional scorn but probably never the kind of sustained backlash currently aimed at the nation's largest alternative news publisher by some religious leaders and law enforcement officials. The subject of their wrath has been Village Voice Media's backpage.com, an online classified advertising service that critics say is a too-easy platform for predators intent on offering underage victims for prostitution.

Readers of alternative newspapers in Los Angeles have one less alternative: New Times is dead. The paper was killed as a part of an arrangement negotiated in secret by the nation's two leading alternative newspaper chains during the last three months. The result looks very much like a good old-fashioned capitalist deal--trading cash for markets. Legal experts said the deal could raise antitrust issues.
