Not that these lists are particularly meaningful, but apropos of yesterday’s Gawkwer rebuttal, Time has named Gawker one of its most overrated blogs of 2009.
Gawker made its name by dishing dirt on high-flying Manhattan media and business titans. But the economic downturn and the near-collapse of Wall Street has made Gawker’s snarky worldview seem not only cruel but pointless. Why kick someone that’s already dead? All that’s left for Gawker is to report on its own demise.
