"deadspin" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

"I know there are some companies that have like a a real name that you just assume Oh, that's named after somebody and is just totally fabricated but after wolf of Wall Street because I knew that was sort of based on a true story I didn't assume they made the C man part up. So my take away from wall. Street had nothing to do with the Steve Madden part by. Focus I'm Margot Robbie and trying to figure out how that would work because I was on Wall Street and I never saw Margot Robbie I never had any sort of midget tossing I never had any of that. So that was disappointing. But in any case, I can only tell you that it's worth it to learn about his story and especially now with what's going on in Florida with voting rights for convicted felons and how how the impact that has an how you can actually get a second chance and it's really is worth watching. All right and next week after your compliance video and what to call little people we will circle back. But it was called in Wilford. Wall Street I. Know I know you. You're helped by the context but I, I just have to call Ya much Mike. David Samson. Nothing personal. We'll talk next week about this MLB Cup any any chance that I mean if you listen to the local hours outside of the ones that you have always been arguing for the NBA to do this. So I got super excited because MLB, you're absolutely going to have a situation where the Fort Wayne ten caps can win the whole thing a David Samson nothing personal. Thank you so much for the time. He talk and heat reaction coming up next on the big with the whole cast characters..

"Deadspin missed. A did not properly explain our financial statements because in them it explained exactly where the money went that where the prophet went the years the Marlins were profitable it went to pay down debt debt that we needed to re borrow in order to put money into the stadium. You didn't show these financial politicians you just mentioned that. So obviously, my mind goes to the place. Well, one of these big teams I was paying the Marlins, all that rev share money leak this. You know I didn't spend until this second one minute considering who leaked it because I've never I've always been a consequentialist. So why would I spend a second worrying about who did something when I had to deal with the fact that it was done? When the genie's out of the bottle am I going to spend time figuring out why someone rubbed the lamp now I gotTa deal with the fact that I gotTa do my three wishes now. I actually am jealous of that trait because you just deal with the task at hand all your band with his devoted to. All right how do we fix this because a large part of me would be so pissed and I, would not trust anybody major league baseball because that's the obvious place. So now that you're thinking about it for the first time. Does that make sense that theory. It could have been from. It could have been from the Union. It could have been from an owner who didn't like US or who didn't want us to succeed. It could have been from owners who were trying to get ballparks and couldn't and were upset it could have been from cities I could have been from any myriad places. Do I think that someone would directly try to hurt our bid to get a stadium? You're damn right idea because we did things that baseball was not necessarily comfortable with throughout the years we did things that people were not comfortable with. We were involved in that transaction or no to that upset a lot of people within baseball There were a lot of people who didn't want John Henry to get the Red Sox within baseball I mean there's there's a lot that went on over the years. So could someone of purposely tried to make it so we would either wouldn't get a ballpark or would have to put more money in yeah. But again, why spend a second on that Mike because it's such a waste of energy when there's such a premium on hours in the day I, want to stay here for a little bit because there obviously political ramifications. Ramifications internally. I'm sure there were people a high ranking officials within your own organization that were sort of caught off guard by exactly what was in some of these financials but it seemed as though you guys were Kinda punished by Major League baseball because you mentioned the players association guys were forced to inject a little bit more money into that. Was that a residual effect of this scandal or is that something different David that was yet another scandal?.

"In the first person plural and it ended for all intents and purposes this is on Friday with a video of NCA stooges lying about paying college athletes at its best deadspin was inciteful and provocative and creative and whimsical and funny and fun it became a home not just for deadline game analysis but ambitious long form narratives and investigations moving personal essays essays and a generally rational worldview that cut through the bullshit not just a big sports but of life in his first post Leach wrote there's a whole side of sports that that because of either corporate obligations just playing laziness never makes it into the public consciousness he was right about that as much as any publication deadspin defined what sports journalism for Smart People in the digital age should look like for many readers including me it replaced legacy sports media as the first place to go go for what happened what mattered what to think about and what to talk about three former dead spinners are packed into a studio at slate headquarters in Brooklyn they are Megan Greenwell who edited the site for eighteen months before resigning this summer she is now the editor of wired dot com hey megan hi thanks for having me Berry Pa- chess key joined the deadspin in two thousand nine was the longest serving staffer when he was fired last Wednesday hey barry has gone and Tom Lay who wrote and edited for the site site for seven years and was among the twenty or so staffers who resigned is also with US hey tom hello how are you good thank you all for doing this I know it was an awful week and I hope this provides some catharsis and if not catharsis at least some analysis so megan why don't we start with you want to explain how the conflict between staff and management enjoyment developed after deadspin was acquired in April along with other sites that were once part of the bankrupted gawker media empire acquired by a private equity firm called Great Hill partners sure so after we were bought in April the first thing that happened was my two bosses Alex Dickinson and Susannah Karen were forced out they were fired in addition to to March man who was running the investigative desk and was my predecessor a deadspin and then the new editorial director Paul maidment just started making king very clear that he had no interest in what the site was in protecting our editorial integrity and so I spent about four months fighting with him on everything things from the stick to sports mandate that he was already trying to enact to the idea that deadspin shouldn't do media reporting even though we had a fulltime media reporter on our staff off to you know questioning the data that the analytics team compiled about what people were reading it was just really really awful and after after things came to a head after Laura Wagner our media reporter reported a piece that Tom and I edited about the hiring practices of these manage assures that had come in and about the ways in which they were clearly trying to ruin the company span feller the CEO assented all staff email questioning Xinning My credibility the credibility Laura Wagner I tried to use that to enact some protections from the editorial director Paul maidment I just couldn't do it I made the calculation that I couldn't stay for my own integrity but also because I was putting the site at risk my thought was maybe maybe they would have a chance of survival if they got rid of me and then everything else went down this past week so buried the thing that caused everything to go downhill was this stick to sports memo that was sent a week ago can you describe the content of the memo and then what happened after you guys got it sure Paul maidment after multiple multiple conversations where he intimated that we should stick to sports but would never outright say it because I think he knew there would be a fight finally sent out a memo saying what had been said publicly all along they had no interest in deadspin doing the things that had made a deadspin for the last fourteen years there are eighteen billion sites you can go to to find out who won you can go to espn you can go to new Zombie deadspin to find out three of PAT's Ravens last night in blog I do think as written by Paul maidment it was not the content of the memo itself that's so rankled it was what it represented wanted like it showed very clearly did not have any respect and did not hold any value for what that's been was and what niche it had carved out and it showed they were willing to fight about it it was a test to see if we would fight it or we would roll over and I do think in the end it's mostly about power they wanted staff to just roll over for them and and do bland work that advertisers wouldn't complain about and just shut up and blog and I've been a deadspin for my entire adult professional life and that that wasn't decided worked in and it was not side I wanted to work at I think some people might conclude that the prudent course would have been to try to ride this out I know it was six long months in the way a you described it Megan was pretty awful in these guys don't really obviously seem to have much sense of what the site was what it represented why it existed what its purpose was laws and they had a very narrow vision for what this could be and should be that was formed I'm guessing not from reading that's it's been very much but from some other metric that was based on the way that digital media properties could be forced to turn a profit profit what did you do and I guess this is all of you what efforts did you make to try to persuade them otherwise I mean look the numbers kind of spoke for themselves than late you were twenty million unique visitors a month I'm sure there are other more pertinent metrics that demonstrate why the site was successful both in terms of draw readers and generating revenue I mean I was in dozens of meetings with Paul Madman and Jim Span Feller over the months between the time they took over in the time I left I could just never get them to care I would sit in rooms with them and present them vision memos I had written and spreadsheets showing the data and you know testaments from people who worked there and people who read the site and other media people and all of that it was the the most frustrating experience in my professional life because it was truly like talking to a brick wall they just clearly had made up their minds and nothing I could say would make them care and that was really what kind of killed me this is Tom it was definitely one of the more like crazy making experiences of my life read after Megan resigned mind you know we we thought that that would be sort of a signal to them that they needed to get their shit together and start listening to us and the entire staff of deadspin had a very long meeting with Paul Maiden I and which again we all in unison explained all the things that Megan had been explaining to them individually it just didn't go anywhere I remember at at the time I think I described it to the rest of the staff is like you're trying to explain how microwave worked to a baby like no matter what we said he just sat there you know he seemed agreeable he would nod you'd say yes I get that that I'll make sense I understand that and it was just there is no movement Megan resigned in August that was the last big Combo we had had about it you know I don't think any of us thought that we made any progress in that meeting but I think maybe we thought like okay maybe we'll just sort of leave us alone they'll you know sort of look the other way as we continue to do what we want but then that Nemo came to start last week and that's when we knew it was it was basically over so question that you guys have all been and asked I think because it seems like the question to ask is why would great hall partners the private equity firm acquire a set of sites it's that they clearly didn't understand didn't respect didn't like didn't want to do what they did did you guys come to any conclusions around and that was it just purely around the set of sites has X. Traffic and feel like we tournament a two accent turn around and sell it again is it just as simple as that this this is the big question isn't it why by deadspin if you don't want that it's been to be deadspin we certainly tossed around all kinds of theories about this and nothing quite went all the way toward explaining how they were doing it not even the theory that this was a Peter thiel plan to finally bring down the former gawker networks tale of course back the lawsuit that ultimately led to a hundred and forty million dollar judgment against gawker indeed Thanks for reminding me yeah so like perhaps this is the private equity model you buy a brand that has some value whether or not you understand why it has value you strip it for parts arts you turn around and sell it to someone dumber before they realized that all the value was lost like that is the very definition of the private Equity Model I would not be shocked if that what was going on here if through very slapdash incompetent way they were clearly focused on scale above all else in my very early conversations I said at one point you know the goal of deadspin is not to be bigger than ESPN and they were horrified by that in some ways I don't think I ever redeemed myself in there is from that comment they wanted to put a p recaps of every sporting event on the site because they wanted it to be a one stop destination estimation and so when I said the point of deadspin is not to be all things to all people it's supposed to have a very strong point of view and that's why it succeeds I mean it was just like they could not understand any mode but let's be the biggest thing in the entire industry so I'm GonNa say something thing that seems pretty straightforward but I think is a true and this is the problem with private equity firms firms buying and destroying all these media properties and that is that an order to run a journalistic outfit you need to care about journalism because journalists list earned as hell and you guys were as a group probably the most annoying group of journalists to an owner that you could possibly construct truck you're always trying to find shit out and you're trying to find out about your bosses that is like deeply annoying and you're like Pesky and you're bothering them and if you don't fundamentally believe in or understand the principle that journalists are there to find out stuff that people don't want them to know how then you're not going to abide that these guys clearly didn't know I mean we'll look where Jim stanfield came from he he's started the daily meal which is just a click farm he made his money turning four orbs into.

"From around the country reading the same script the sharing of biased and phone call to comment on in some really thoughtful writing is coming out of deadspin about the trump presidency pressing pieces about Gamer Gate. Yes so I think the way I would I think of it is that they wrote about sports but they also wrote about anything else that particular kind of sports fan was interested in one of their most popular columns was called the Jam Baru and it was just going went through all the NFL Games of the week but then the writer drew drew mockery would throw in Chile recipes or observational humor about doing home repair and raising his kids but also as you said they covered the NFL critically and in a way they've covered nfl owners and the Colin Kaepernick situation and then very critical in in a way I think that kind of morphed into the way they covered trump so it'd be kind of grew from just covering sports to writing critically about about sports and business and politics politics and everything that sports touches on and is it fair for me to say that deadspin they didn't necessarily have the kind of compromise advertising and broadcast relationships tips that we've seen inhibit other sports journalism that the staff had a lot of editorial independence right right so they didn't unlike ESPN or unlike Fox exports they weren't also trying to sign partnerships with Leagues Broadcast Games so they they had a leeway for instance with the controversy that the NBA gotten into With China regarding protests in Hong Kong it started with a tweet from Houston Rockets General Manager Darryl Maury that read quote fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong that tweet prompted swift backlash from the Chinese government and Chinese business partners who pulled their money from the rockets they are able to write about that subject honestly without worrying about offending NBA broadcast partners ESPN has to be much more circumspect because the NBA rights broadcast NBA Games is a huge part of the business so yeah they had they had that into an independent perspective and allowed them to be I think a lot more honest in a way that in a way that was very valuable both Torito's.

At Google cloud hint. It's a species you'll find in the mirror. It's humans humans, but the new head of Google's cloud business. Thomas Curien aims to end this Google shortcoming. He says to few people cater to enterprise customers. So he simplified contracts for different types of businesses that's opposed to a one size fits all pricing. And he's also moved to move more predictable pricing. And according to the journal, clawing bigger piece of the cloud is crucial for Google to diversify beyond online advertising coming up. London's proposal for a new social media regulator is one of the broadest yet in a larger movement by countries to assert control over tech giant's breaking it all down after this support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Deloitte, a global leader in digital transformation helping clients apply. Technologies like cloud an AI. To their unique business challenges Deloitte, Kat com slash look again. The UK government plans to create a new regulatory body to force the removal of harmful content from the internet one of the most far-reaching legislative proposals from a host of countries. Trying to put a tighter leash on global tech companies. The Wall Street Journal's Kim Gittleson gets more on the story from parmi Olson in our London bureau said talk to me a little bit about your story. What is it that the UK government is proposing and how different is it from other regulations we've seen it's definitely quite bold compared to other regulations that have come out that are similar to this right now. This is just a policy proposal that the government has announced essentially, they are saying that big technology companies hosts social media sites, I Facebook, an alphabet Google should take what they call reasonable and proportionate action on all sorts of potentially harmful content that ends up on their sites. Whether that's. Violent content cyber bullying or disinformation. What we still don't know is actually how they're going to enforce that. How are they going to basically measure success? Like, how do they know? For example, how many videos extremists videos Facebook is taken down in one day. They're kind of relying on Facebook to tell them that information because the only people in the world that no that is Facebook. I mean, how does this compare to other regulations say put on place by these companies? I know it's a new era, and there aren't that many in place? But does this go one step further? We'll there definitely moves afoot from what we've heard in other parts of the world, Germany, France. There seems to be a lot happening in Europe in terms of trying to regulate big tech more. So than in the US, which is kind of ironic, you kind of look to disallow Convalle e is the place where the innovation happens. And then Europe is where they keep it all in check you could say from what we've seen. It does seem like this is. Is the kind of most rigorous and robust attempt actually putting in paper ideas and rules for regulating Toco technology companies in this way, again, it's not to do with data privacy, but just on the content like harmful content. How do you regulate that? And this seems to be the most substantial set of rules that we've seen so far, and why is the British government doing this right now? Surely there other things that British politicians might be paying attention to Brexit comes to mind, why this time in April are they paying attention to this issue. Well, there's been a consultation going for quite some time from what I've heard from speaking to people in the tech industry here for months and months is actually surprisingly enough people who work in the tech industry here. Really like what's happening? They're very impressed with the way the government has the civil service has gone about actually asking questions to the tech industry. I'm sure the same will not be said in Silicon Valley. I'm sure Facebook and Google Twitter. The folks are scratching their heads at this like how on earth are they going to pull this off? What has been the response from Silicon Valley? What is in the fonts from Facebook alphabets Google? It's just been very polite. I don't think anyone really from either of those companies want to go on the record and say, this is like really you expect politicians to regulate something as complicated, as you know, content moderation, which is not only done by humans, and we know tens of thousands of people around the world are helping moderate harmful content, but super complex metrics are used for that artificial intelligence machine learning tools. I mean, it's extremely complicated. I'm would not surprise me. If these companies behind the scenes are actually extremely skeptical of what the government is trying to do. And and don't think particularly highly of it in their comments to us though. They're extremely polite about it. So what happens next the UK is introduced this idea. Where does it go from here? Well, we've been told that they're working on turning it into legislation. So that's going to be quite a few number of weeks out. I'm sure probably months, and then they'll table that. And in the meantime, the minister at least one of the ministers from the what we call the department for culture, media and sport here who was behind this proposal. Jeremy Wright has said that he will be visiting the United States later this year he wants to showcase his proposals. And I suppose hope that the US will use it as a template and other countries as well. How realistic do you think that is will other countries pay attention to this? Well, I think it'd be easy to just dismiss it and say why would anyone pay attention to this? But there's a lot of momentum around regulating or answering the problem of harmful content on social media p people feel that something should be done about it. And when you ask whether tech companies are policing themselves properly. I think a lot of people would say the answer to. That is no more needs to be done. So I would not rule out the possibility that other governments will actually look to the UK and how successful or unsuccessful this country is pulling this off parmi Elson. Thank you so much for speaking. With me.

What's at stake on the field in the 2018 Heineken Rivalry Week

"We start with MLS because there is some mid week action and it's prominent midweek action because JJ this is rivalry week. Yes, Wednesday, seven o'clock, a nice Wednesday night, New York Darby to look forward to. I love it NYC FC and the red bulls navy each one one against each other. So far this season next Morales scored pretty late on the last time that they met to spoil Chris Armas first Darby between these two, typically the red bull's eye. I'm very curious about this game because I feel like both teams are pretty good and then wide CFC I feel like we're starting to see greater. Aspirant's from them on a grander scale, although they're coming off a loss at the weekends. Both teams may be hitting this game in an interesting time. Now, here's the one real quick that I, we haven't talked a lot about this, but now things are starting to happen. So I did want to get your thoughts, Thursday, seven o'clock, Chicago fire and Columbus Crew. And this has nothing to do with the game. But sadly, it's starting to feel more and more like an inevitability that the crew are going to be leaving. Columbus. The Austin city council passed a vote of seven to four for the building of a soccer specific stadium in the northern part of the city. And so now I guess JJ it comes down to this. If you give me a sec here, I'm going to read from something I saw on deadspin. They did a whole feature on this. This is from the article in deadspin.

"The us the eu and japan the boards of both companies have already approved the deal and quote tech crunch notes that it's a bit of a surprise to see a chip maker like broadcom acquire a software and services company broadcom ceo hocktan released a statement that said quote this transaction represents an important building block as we create one of the world's leading infrastructure technology companies with its sizable installed base of customers see a is uniquely positioned across the growing and fragmented infrastructure software market and its mainframe enterprise offer franchises will add to our portfolio of mission critical technology businesses we intend to continue to strengthen these franchises to meet the growing demand for infrastructure software solutions and quote but as tech crunch notes that statement doesn't exactly explain the rationale behind this deal other than by merely hinting at a product line diversification attempting to buy a fellowship maker qualcomm tom had the obvious logic of industry consolidation but this purchase essentially means broadcom is entering an entirely new business though this deal does have the advantage that it's unlikely the us government will try to block it axios says quote the qualcomm experience suggests that broadcom which was based in singapore before redone asylum to the us is unlikely to get regulatory approval for another chip deal so it's going with a software play instead kind of like win intel bought mcafee though as axios own enough read tweeted quote dear broadcom you know intel is trying to get out of mcafee right this after noon and an auction at the law firm ropes and gray llp in new york city the remaining assets of gawker more than fifty domain names in archive of two hundred thousand articles going back nearly twenty years some social media accounts and a sort of trademarks were all purchased by bustle and bleacher report founder brian goldberg at the time of this recording i could not confirm the actual purchase price but the opening bid did come in at one point one three million dollars and some have tweeted that the winning bid was one point three five million if you'll recall gaca media was forced into bankruptcy after losing a lawsuit brought by hulk hogan a case which it later was revealed had been secretly financed all along by peter thiel other gawker properties including moto jesu bell kotoka and deadspin were bought by univision communications for one hundred thirty five million dollars but nobody wanted to pick up gawker and it's archives until today no word on what brand goldberg intends to do with gawker yet but as many have pointed out on twitter goldberg was the target of some fairly scathing gawker post back in the day gawker once called bleacher report quote an enormously popular sports site written by and for idiots and quote so will goldberg resurrect gawker or did he simply by to bury it time'll tell this actually hasn't been a happy week for the memory of gawker media in a related story just two years after buying the former gawker media which has now been renamed gizmodo media group univision media is reportedly putting that property back on the market also up for sale the onion which univision bought around the same time so not only are gizmodo and company looking for.

"Uhhuh prisoners insult many but it's funny because it feels like you're a part of something that's different yeah and you're really not you're just it's the same sort of garbage let's say like it's the same sort of rebel stuff that's been going on since amil house you know where it's like we're different we're horny but we wanted to get drunk get horny we're not like other guys you know so i think it was mart i think the difference in chaos k and deadspin compared to deadspin certainly has gone through a lot of veterans where it was you know more mean or more freddie than it is now but i think even back in the old days with deadspin and especially ks k mart like it was good writing and it was smart even when it was being friday and kind of insulting and so that made it a place that was at least more enjoyable then going to just know a sports by brooks where it's really just boobs and and so i think it's interesting you wrote a story for deadspin a couple of months ago called the reckoning always comes and you talk about like the pivot that was necessary for you just because it came naturally to talk about the the post that you used to write the things used to write about the ways in which you may be insulted women or gay people or whatever because it felt like a joke that you could explain away with well comedy it's comedy and this is i am and and now you don't make those jokes anymore they're not necessary and you are sensitive to the way that it can create very real hurt for people who are consistently marginalized in ways that straight white dude's aren't what did it feel like to write that because i think the people that agree with you on that are i was reading it like yes yes this is this is good and then there are those who are going to be on it and say what to do like you're just you're just placating or you're trying to pander to people.

"To go across the street to another station you generally have to sit out off the air for six months and in my fourteen years as a broadcast journalist i can only think of a single case where a station was willing to hire someone from across the street and pay them to sit out there non compete for six months it just it rarely happens so it is actually very hard to stay in your market but go across the street to another station that said we we've already seen some anchors were standing up and saying either i was embarrassed by that and you deserve better because of my credibility and even this morning saw an anchor in eugene oregon which i was surprised that's a very small market and someone one of the anchors said no didn't tape that and and i refused to that's the first case i'm aware of that now that station cave al had another of their anchors ended up taping that promo that we've seen everywhere thanks to deadspin so made us be that that station didn't put their foot down or it may be the corporate didn't know that an anchor refused and in that case didn't care because it's it's a pretty small market at not sure what the cases in that that particular case well the deadspin video that you referred to was pretty damning when they just literally showed all lots and lots of these anchors residing the same piece of copy and it just spoke for itself and so i imagine a lot of those people onscreen there in that mosaic that deadspin put out they've got to feel a little embarrassed that you think oh i'm sure i'm my heart went out to all of them both as someone who used to be a news manager and is someone who grew up in the business my mom was an anchor in tucson for thirty years so i put myself in their shoes or in the shoes of if that had been my mom thirty years ago with a six year old seven year old kid at home having to make the decision do i read this even though it goes against every fiber of my being as a journalist or do i take a stand and risks losing my job or get out of the business or whatever other options you have i certainly can't blame anyone for making the choice to to read.

"I do by and large i mean i suppose you can point isolated examples but i think that what you're looking at here is really notable mostly because i think that it's kind of a public awareness campaign largely for the viewers i mean one of the things that i i think is important to remember here is that without something like the deadspin video or the wave of national coverage this week that points out what a coordinated effort this was by the corporation in in sinclair broadcast group viewers might be misled into thinking that this was just sort of a local message from their local news anchors because that's how it was designed to look so you're watching you know channel twenty seven in whatever market or channel thirty in another and you see the local journalists that you trust come on your air the people you watch every day and they're giving you this sort of dire warning about fake stories and their pervasiveness in the rest of the press and unless you know better you're going to think that this is a message from your local station and it is not and so i think that's one of the things that's been really important to point out this week yeah i've had several sinclair journalists in various markets say to me i'm so glad there's more awareness of this now because we've been having these so called must run stories for years we've been having these protrump commentaries for a year now there's this promo campaign that feels inappropriate and uncomfortable and at least now there's more awareness than there was a week or month ago about how the sinclair corporates their headquarters makes us put this stuff on our local newscasts you have on this title how local tv is trending toward trump tv do you think this is primarily about trump.
