GQ Talks to The Man Behind Deadspin

A.J. Daulerio is the Editor-in-Chief of Deadspin.com, and if you’re looking for someone to blame because you now know that Brett Favre takes pictures of his own penis, he’s your man. In a GQ profile, Gabriel Sherman talks to Daulerio about what his reporting style has done for Deadspin (good things), journalism (not always good things) and Daulerio himself (mostly bad things).

It’s a great read, and sort of surprising to see in GQ. Typically, the magazine profiles people that everyone knows, but Daulerio doesn’t fall into that category. Though maybe after today he will.

Also, keep an eye out tomorrow for our interview with Sherman, where we’ll get his perspective on Daulerio and his effect on journalism.
