Virgin verve

Virgin verve

The "Virgin Verve" is a free, weekly alternative newspaper distributed in St. Thomas and St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Virgin Verve published its last weekly issue on February 3rd, 2006. It is currently in the middle of a reorganisation, and plans to publish on a monthly format.

The Virgin Verve focuses on bars and entertainment without attempting to present a single piece of serious "news." A satirical newspaper taking its inspiration from free newspapers like The Onion. It has become a magnet for controversy in the notoriously intolerant Virgin Islands.

It has been the target of several campaigns attempting to force the publishers to stop printing. Since it is a free newspaper with only advertising as a source of revenue, the targets of these campaigns have been the advertisers. They have been harassed in various ways with varying degrees of success.
