Because the reviews of her print stuff aren’t getting her the attention she craves, maybe?

I just jumped out of a meeting and read a few more paragraphs. That this is still a prevailing thought on these sites is hilarious: Read more

lol this book review sounds like an external performance review of all gmg bloggers.

And we're doing another big weddings take down. Bc apparently the fiftyleven times they've tackled this feminist crisis before weren't enough.

If I were an editor at The Daily Beast or NYmag or even Columbia Journalism Review, I’d commission a story that was simply a bunch of women writers from Gawker Media sharing their memories of Nick Denton. I remember MoGlob once writing something like “My desk was positioned directly in line with Denton’s and we could Read more

I honestly don’t recall the deflowering story, or whether the age difference was presented as an important plot point. I don’t remember much. She had a Gay Best Friend in high school (of course) and they had a falling out (of course). What else?... She was very certain of her physical attractiveness and ability to get Read more

One of the Berners loudest claims about Bernie is that he has been on the right side of issues his entire life. Clearly that’s not true for his record on guns (or immigration).

To be sure, there are legitimate critiques of Sanders’ voting record on gun reform, but I find Bloomberg’s attack curious. Read more

That’s a great observation, about the weak link between Trump’s ascension via television and the narrator’s bad experiences at Gawker Media. A savvy editor might have advised Gould: “Start with the scene of you and your husband and friend watching the debate, and see where it takes you (but don’t let it take you back Read more

I remember liking it too, and it’s a measure of my naivete that I never thought “Oh jeez, this could put the Olsen Twins [or whoever] in danger of a homicidal maniac.” I thought of it as sort of innocent fun, like something PageSix would do. Gawker probably should have waited a day to run the items, like “Spotted Read more

I admit I loved Gawker Stalker, but it was because of bits like “The Olsen Twins looking at bed sheets at Barney’s in Mid Town” or mundane things like that. Read more

I do remember Gawker stalker but I thought it didn’t work like a realtime map of celebrity sightings. I can’t remember though. Seems weird that she was the one they’d want to have on Larry King over it. I mean, honestly wouldn’t you want Denton if the point was to ambush them? Read more

I liked the way she wrote about that moment in the debates, particularly her husband’s and his friend’s reactions. I remember it well myself, the dawning horror and twin denial. I knew Trump would win then. And I haven’t been quite right in the head or body since. All of us struggling with that could write some Read more

It’s really astounding how little self-awareness gossip columnists have about themselves. One of the old school gossip mavens died a few years ago with a smattering of less than flattering fanfare, which surprised her family. I remember wondering why they were so confused. People are only welcoming to these folks to Read more

The attempted takedown of Lauren Duca and their post about Babe from the year before come to mind. They don’t have the clout that other blogs-turned-media outlets have bc they never transitioned from shallow, low rent, poorly researched and analyzed, mean girl hot taeks. So any time they try and throw out a media Read more
