Starting new alternative newspapers has been suggested as one legal remedy to the controversial closing of the Cleveland Free Times and New Times Los Angeles, Lucia Moses reports in E&P. Even without legal orders, new papers are "moving to fill the void," she writes. "Silver Lake Press, a 30,000-distribution biweekly in eastern L.A., will change its name to Los Angeles Alternative Press and expand distribution next month, while in Cleveland former Free Times staffers started a new alternative monthly, Urban Dialect."
