New York Magazine on Gawker, Nick Denton on New York Magazine

New York magazine’s story on “Gawker and the Rage of the Creative Underclass,” months in the works, is out this morning, and it accuses the site of encouraging — wait for it — a “culture of bile.”

Gawker publisher Nick Denton’s pre-emptive response, which was up this morning before the story appeared, amounts, essentially, to a mildly erudite shrug.
