Gawker, Publishing, and the Creative Underclass

Nobody covers the feelings of the so-called creative underclass better than Hamilton Nolan, prolific Gawker reporter–today’s guest on Morning Media Menu.

But it’s really not. Especially in New York. It’s just as connection driven as fashion, business, and Wall Street. Which is kind of sad.”
