Blog tycoons Jason Calacanis and Nick Denton have been included on a list of 50 Most Loathsome New Yorkers, as published by the “New York Press”.

Denton cops the biggest serve with a description that starts with “Franken-headed Gawker Media emperor Nick Denton takes partial blame for the dubious distinction of introducing the word “blog” to grandmothers in Dubuque”. It also alleges that his bloggers are lowly paid slaves, that he hides his wealth and that he stole code from a kid without paying for it.

The article is not kind to Calacanis either, again making suggestion of slave pay rates and refers to him as a huckster.

New York blogger Sarah Lewitinn (aka Ultragrrrl) also is named in the 50.
