I am... actually relatively pleased with his statement considering what we’re dealing with here. I suspected it might come down. Gawker never removes articles and knowing that, I don’t know why I believed it would come down, but yes, I did save that shit to PDF because this is Kinja and that is what we do here when we suspect a terrible opinion will be removed.
I still feel Jordan and anyone else associated (Tommy Craggs for instance) owes this man a tremendous apology. I expected Denton’s retraction would skew more towards “this is bad for business.” and there may still be that sentiment underneath, but overall, I wanted it taken down. I wanted acknowledgement that it was not a moral or ethical article. I feel I got that. Still looking for that apology though.
What do you guys think about this?
