UPDATED: What is even going on at Gawker???

FOR AN UPDATE – READ HERE:  Daily Beast – The Day Gawker Tore Itself Apart

I am interested in everyone’s thoughts here.

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the Gawker/Kinja sites, mainly because I thought they were far to judgmental on women and openly criticize others in a less than constructive way.  Now, I do not in anyway condone Conde Nast’s CFO’s behavior.  However, I’m not sure the reason behind outing a person in this fashion is the correct way to do it (but it is true to Gawker’s style).  This article attached makes a great case – this person was living their life quietly and wasn’t being a hypocrite by voting for anti-LGBT laws – the usual reason for outing someone in this fashion.

There is a legitimate First Amendment/Mutiny/Freedom of the Press situation going on over there.

These are the days I’m glad I run my blog on my own.
