The Weekly's editor in chief tells the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that his autonomy has decreased since the merger between New Times and Village Voice Media, but that he was not forced out by the new ownership. Berger has left the alt-weekly twice before, each time to be asked back. Berger announced his resignation July 3 on his blog. "I've been through four ownership groups, five publishers, and have seen the paper into the online era. Now we're six months into the Village Voice/New Times merger era, and I've decided it's time to be a free-range mossback again," he wrote.
