The Collapse of the Texas Observer: All the Good People Were Driven Out

From a story on by Naomi Andu headlined “The collapse of the Texas Observer”:

Inserted between the pages of the Texas Observer’s Nov./Dec. edition, mailed to readers two months late, was a letter explaining that delivery had been delayed to put together a special, higher-quality double issue. Signed by the interim publisher and interim editor-in-chief, it touted the issue’s thicker, matte paper and perfectly bound spine.

The letter didn’t mention the original reason for the wait: Internal turmoil at the organization had led a wave of employees to quit.
