Robert Christgau: Still Rocking at Voice

While Village Voice music editor Chuck Eddy was terminated yesterday—the 17th staffer to leave or be fired since the New Times merger in November, 2005—Voice rock critic and senior editor Robert Christgau is still employed at the paper, despite rumors of his termination.

“It would appear my optimism about the arts coverage was optimistic,” Mr. Christgau said from home last night. “Chuck Eddy was fired. That’s the fact. I’m not going to explain it.”
