Nick Denton, The Demon Blogger of Fleet Street
Strange timing on that comment.
Nope, just Denton’s S.O.P. disinformation activities. He regularly gets other pubs to print BS, which both confuses his competition and makes those other pubs look silly.
Someone is right about this.
Noah’s two cents: Maybe I’m missing some joke, but I believe it was in reference to media people and specifically the old guard. It’s followed by, “People used to quake when Barry Diller picked up the phone. Now he’s laughable. That image of Murdoch dyeing his hair in the sink is indelible—though the coloring may not be. Sumner Redstone would only be of interest to Gawker readers if he were to soil his adult diapers—on-camera. But the hard truth is that the golden age of New York media is largely over.”
