Gossip from Manhattan and the Beltway to Hollywood and the Valley.
Gawker is a gossip site that encompasses a whole family of sites that were previously separate.
Includes the following sub-sites, under the "Gawker Media" imprint:
Gawker Media is an American blog network founded by confessed cockmongler Nick Denton. It comprises 13 or 14 different web sites, which try desperately to churn out snippy, “hip” remarks that will garner pageviews from middle-aged fats in Methtown, USA -- i.e., the only people who still consider Gawker relevant. All commenters must be a daily cumbucket for the mods and worship all that is spoken on the crap blogs, there is no trolling or lulz in comments EVAR. ED's article on Gawker was edited at least once a day by Gawker staffers, and if OHi takes off then this article can be anticipated to meet with the same fate. You can help by reverting Gawker's edits, identifiable because they read like advertising copy written by sissy Brooklynites who were unable to land real jobs.
Gawker's internets coverage has been steadily increasing since Project Chanology. The reasons for this are twofold. First, Gawker is desperate to keep its brand young and edgy, and just like the dumbfucks in the old media they are endlessly fascinated by web 2.0, memes etc which they believe are the future. The result is a bunch of witless 27-year-old Greenpoint residents trying to be youthful and clever by writing their same old posts about Conde Nast (srsly), then filling them with expressions like IDK and then tagging them "epicfail." (Then they try to criticize old media for doing the exact same thing). Gawker is like the character Eugene Levy plays in every subpar teen comedy: he vomits up lewd teen lingo in effort to seem "with it" but just ends up embarassing himself and everyone watching. The second reason for Gawker's rampant lust over ED, /b/ et al. is that Gawker bloggers are paid based on the number of pageviews they generate, and believe that baiting the chans will earn them a big fat paycheck. /I/nsurgents soon discovered that raiding Gawker and its employees is futile unless you have dogmongling pics of them, since they are all aspiring new media personalities who welcome the traffic and lack any sense of shame.
