27_1348a14761_p.jpgGawker hit a new low, posting a hit piece about a 4-year-old this week. They called said 4-year-old “the worst,” declared they “hate” him and justified it all by explaining that he’s not a 4-year-old; he’s Neal Pollack’s 4-year-old.

Now, we’re no fans of Pollack, but this is out of line. And since 4 seems to be the median age of our readership, we feel the moral obligation to defend Elijah Pollack and the precocious spawn of self-absorbed writers everywhere.

Gawker, you either say sorry for hitting children right now, or you’re getting a time out.
