My old pal, Tommy Craggs, is the new executive editor for Gawker Media. Tim Marchman will replace him as Deadspin’s new editor.
OK, interesting. To find out more information, I went to Google, etc. Then I did a search for Deadspin on Twitter.
And voila, this is what I popped up: I have been blocked by Deadspin.
The blockage probably happened a while back, but I never noticed. Guess I haven’t been paying much attention to Deadspin these days.
I have written a few critical pieces of Deadspin, drawing its ire. Apparently, there’s a rule: Deadspin can knock anything and everything, but don’t dare criticize the site.
Craggs once called me “the dumbest fucking guy in sports media” on a Will Leitch podcast.
More love from Craggs: “He’s such a hack through and through. He only can see the world through a hack’s eyes. He thinks we’re responding to him the way he responds, i.e. hackily. He can’t fathom the idea that we hate him because he really sucks at what really should be a cool job.”
Now with that lovely assessment of my overall worth, I discover the good folks at Deadspin have denied me access to their Twitter feed. So nice to know they care.
Good luck, Tim.
