Same ownership that killed Deadspin so not a surprise. Looks like the same thing is happening and all of the staff that make it what it is are jumping ship. Hope they’ll follow the Defector model and set up something new, AA Dowd and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky are two of the very best film critics.

Yeah really hope they do. Always liked Nathan Rabin too, he went off to do a solo thing didn’t he

shame, still quite liked it

They fucked up Jezebel a while back too Inside the Turmoil at Jezebel

G/o determined to run anything they acquire into the ground

I know it’s been a bit crap for ages but I’ve followed it (and The Onion) constantly for more than 20 years! I know this because I remember the onion’s 9/11 coverage.
