    So so happy to see this clip here at OT.

    Said Zimmerman,”It’s not important if a story is real, the only thing that matters is if people click on it.”

    Now I’m curious. I wonder what Gawker’s current managing editor has to say, if anything.Report

    While I don’t begrudge anyone this way of doing business (well, maybe I do, but supposing I don’t), the thing that gets me is when the people at these sites refuse to cop to the model they’ve embraced.

    By all means let people clicking on dancing animals and celebrity gossip go toward funding more in-depth reportage or thoughtful essays, but let’s not pretend that these are Very Serious endeavors focused delivering righteous indignation for its own sake.

    The video of the journalist’s execution but IS Gawker chose to post makes this clear.Report
