Has Nick Denton sold out to the New York Times?
Rumours are spreading that Nick “I’ll never sell out” Denton has sold Gawker Media to the New York Times for $32 million. It looks and smells like a joke however, and certainly Gawker itself is denying it all, but we are still willing to bet eventually the smell of money and the promise of a life-times worth of free man-on-man Caribbean cruises will tempt Denton to sell out one day. Everyone has their price, even if they cant find love.

Sorry, Blogebrity forgot to publicly debunk this two weeks ago. Gawker hasn’t been sold, according to every internal contact we have.
