Gawker Media Seeks Freelance Flack

Gawker Media’s Nick Denton is not only looking for less inside baseball and better headlines, he’s looking for an old fashioned flack too.

According to a post this afternoon, the network of blogs is looking for a “freelance publicist/booker to handle incoming media requests as well as proactively book our editors for interviews/appearances on television and in print.”

We wonder how Denton can balance his traffic payment model (which keeps writers and editors at their desks) with the time consuming process of preparing for interviews, and traveling to and from TV studios.

Four Corners Comm’s Drew Kerr–who has himself been ensnared in Gawker’s hook-and-don’t-release M.O.–noted the irony in a Tweet today.
