Gawker Can Become A Political Website

Gawker Media is shutting down Defamer, Millihelen, Kitchenette, Valleywag, and several other sites in order to “focus intensely on politics, broadly considered, and the 2016 campaign”.

Several folks have obviously been canned as part of the “reorganization”, with Millihelen’s Jane Marie taking to twitter to share her displeasure.

It is rumored that the changes are being made because Gawker began hemorrhaging advertisers after they outed a random married executive, and are part of Nick Denton’s pleadge to make Gawker “20 percent nicer”.
