Gawker is a blog founded by Nick Denton and Elizabeth Spiers and based in New York City that bills itself as "the source for daily Manhattan media news and gossip". It focuses on celebrities and the media industry. Founded in 2003, Gawker is the flagship blog for Nick Denton's Gawker Media. Gawker has created other blogs, including Defamer and Deadspin, which covers sports.

Gawker usually publishes more than 20 posts daily during the week, sometimes reaching 30 posts a day, with limited publishing on the weekends. The site also publishes content from its sister sites. Gawker's content consists of celebrity and media industry gossip, critiques of mainstream news outlets and New York-centric stories. The stories generally come from anonymous tips from media employees, found mistakes and faux pas in news stories caught by readers and other blogs, and original reporting.

I think the site is clean and basic which is fine. Advertisements are very minimal. As far as the writing itself, Gawker lives up to it's east coast roots. Very blunt, to the point and direct. I appreciate that, because I find that a lot of news/gossip sites tend to write with a dialogue thats very flowery. Just give me the dirt, it doesn't have to an authors spiral into their own conflicting thoughts. Gawker authors get it, for people who just need the facts quick. Runs well on iphone as well.
