Gawker Writer Quits After Just One Day of Work

4 Jan

An embarrassing moment for Nick Denton…

All is not well in the house of Denton. We hear that just one day after media reporter Richard Morgan began at Gawker.com, he’s already quit. Just yesterday, site owner and (new) managing editor Nick Denton made much ado about the Website’s brave new image for 2008, including a role for Morgan covering the TV networks. But it turns out Denton’s pledge to elevate more serious journalistic work on the blog wasn’t as fulfilled as Morgan had hoped. “I believed what Nick said about making the site more reported, making it more mainstream, and, vainly, thought that’s why he hired me,” Morgan told us over IM just now.
