Private Eyes Snoop on Gawker Blogger

Apparently Crockett, Tubbs, and not even Spencer were for hire in the case of pesky blogger Hamilton Nolan from Gawker. Two private investigators have been snooping around his home town in Florida seeking information, saying it’s a background check for a potential job.

The former PRWeek reporter joined Gawker in January of this year to cover advertising, media, and PR.

I checked with Nolan and he said “I have no idea who it is,” but did confirm that about 10% of his posts are about the public relations industry.

What is clear though, is the PIs, or “dicks” involved, Steven Brown and Rachel Singleton don’t investigate many people who have the ability to publish their email addresses and cell phone numbers for the entire Manhattan media scene to see.

Feel free to send information on this incident to us here, or use the Anonymous Tips window on the main page. Discretion guaranteed.
