Gawker Media Pimps Itself in Promotional Video
"This guy, whether we like it or not, is the future." So says a very angry Friday Night Lights author Buzz Bissinger of Deadspin Editor Will Lietch in a Gawker Media promotional reel released today.
The reel sums up the company's offerings and, in true form, gleefully highlights (while taunting, of course) its detractors. It's Gawkeriffic. We've been reading Gawker Media's blogs since Elizabeth Spiers made her first post on Gawker back in the day. And we've loved every word.
While micro-blogging (think Twitter), social networks (think Facebook) and social media (think, well, everything else) get all the hype these days, blogs, with an insatiable dagger-like obsession, still rule at razor sharp coverage of specific topical areas like no other media out there. And they do it faster, cheaper and snarkier.
