At Gawker Media’s offices in Manhattan, a flat-screen television mounted on the wall displays the 10 most-viewed articles across all Gawker’s Web sites. The author’s last name, along with the number of page views that hour and over all are prominently shown in real time on the screen, which Gawker has named the “big board.”

“Sometimes one sees writers just standing before it, like early hominids in front of a monolith,” said Nick Denton, Gawker Media’s founder.

The explanation on some of these jokes are not only bad, but they kind of miss the point of the jokes.

http://www.poynter.org/news/mediawire/312743/nick-denton-wants-to-reach-more-conservatives/#.VLflPQSUtH8.facebook

Let’s welcome, if not out-and-out racists, then at least the wide array of people with whom a conversation is possible: national greatness conservatives, Burkean Tories and business pragmatists, for instance; Christians and other spiritual people; economic liberals, libertarians and techno-utopians; and black and other social conservatives.

flopson, Friday, 16 January 2015 18:42 (four years ago) link

frankly i think he'd have better luck with out-and-out racists than the rest of those people

goole, Friday, 16 January 2015 19:14 (four years ago) link

i wld be interested in just from a uh academic pov seeing a bunch of liberal journalists try to reverse engineer the conservative mind

lag∞n, Friday, 16 January 2015 19:17 (four years ago) link

maybe par33n3's first prank will be to make the whole site conservative
