Denton doing damage control: http://www.capitalnewyork.com/article/me...ny-i-built

If there are more resignations, combined with gamergate emailing advertisers, the company could very well go bust before the end of the year.

Quote:Denton also criticized his editors for failing to consider the impact that the story would have on its author, 27-year-old staff writer Jordan Sargent. Sargent, Denton said, is now "shell-shocked" after receiving so much criticism and abuse online in response to the post.

Maybe Sargent needs to grow up as well.

Of course, blaming the editors for Sargent's writings helps protect his fewlings, versus calling the idiot out for being an idiot.

SJW's are gonna SJW.

Gawker miscalculated. Among the SJW crowd there is a rudimentary and fuzzy formula used to determine whether a person deserves to have their rights violated. Is the man a man? check. Is the man white (either in appearance or behavior/idealogy)? check. Is the man successful? check. Does the man represent something we don't like? check (reddit). Is the man straight? oops.

"Tommy Craggs, the executive editor of Gawker Media, and Max Read, the editor-in-chief of Gawker.com, are resigning from the company. In letters sent today, Craggs and Read informed staff members that the managing partnership’s vote to remove a controversial post about the CFO of Condé Nast—a unprecedented act endorsed by zero editorial employees—represented an indefensible breach of the notoriously strong firewall between Gawker’s business interests and the independence of its editorial staff. Under those conditions, Craggs and Read wrote, they could not possibly guarantee Gawker’s editorial integrity."

I thought editorial meant things like fact checking.

And integrity...I don't really wanna go nuts on that point. Would just be a wall of text.

Oh and...
