Nick Denton’s askhole
He is genuinely answering questions. He even took a photo of himself holding a “We are sorry” sign.
I only wonder how to word my “Why does Gawker media endorse casual racism, ableism and rape apologia through Tracie and Jezebel’s EIC?” question so that he feels obliged to answer it. Because in a news organization of such magnitude, that’s what I care to know the most. The hacking is unfortunate, but let’s not loose perspective: it can happen to anyone. The other, more ideological subjects are a choice, though. And, unlike the hacking, completely avoidable.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
