I'm no cheerleader for this here website—after all, I quit! Monday is my last day! Even so, I can't help but be irritated when Real Media Outlets write total lies about Gawker—because it's just bad journalism. Why, they're worse than bloggers!

The yanked Madonna video

Salon has a bootleg copy of the anti-war video Madonna yanked at the last minute. Heather Havrilesky's description: "While explosions occur and bombs drop on a screen in the background, models half-dressed in military garb walk down a runway, followed by what appears to be a young Arab boy draped in ammunition, and several covered Muslim women. Madonna carves "Protect Me" onto one of the stalls of a public restroom, indulges in some "Rhythm Nation"-style dance moves in a hallway, and then, tossing a half-full latt over her shoulder, raps about the pursuit of happiness via Pilates classes, personal trainers, metaphysical enlightenment and, yes, strong coffee."
