On An Oral History Of Gawker, By Reddit

I can't tell if anybody here actually has any specific knowledge about Gawker. For the record, a lot of that stuff from Reddit is false. Gawker was established as a 'gossip' website focusing on New York City but as the website matured they've begun to engage in more 'serious' journalism and are now generally considered to be a legitimate media outlet. Examples of 'scoops' and activism in recent years include Gawker's exposure of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford as a crack addict, as well as the website's Balkan edition playing a central role in Moldova's 'Silent Spring' movement.

On Rockers, 29 Different Kinds

I was sure there was a Superchunk song called 'She's An Indie Rocker' and was sure it'd be on The List. Turns out I was actually remembering this Archers of Loaf song:

On Defending Manhattan From America: Pete Wells and Guy Fieri

Does it make any difference to the 'classist' attack that (I was curious and Googled for it) the NY Post also gave this place a terrible, zero star review?
