Looks like Deadspin’s little revolt has claimed a victim. Longtime author and Deputy Editor Barry Patchesky has been fired.
For those of you that don’t follow sports, Deadspin often doesn’t either. They have gotten even more political after Splinter was killed. Yesterday they got a memo from G/O Media that they had to “Stick to Sports” which of course is code for “don’t talk about politics we don’t agree with.”
Take a look at the page and you can see how well they took that directive. Nothing has been posted in a few hours so the corporate overlords are clamping down on the insurrection.
Please feel free to share this anywhere else you like and have privileges to do so since I’m sure no story will be forthcoming on the main pages. That’s not the way G/O Media does business.
