Nick Denton Struggles With Remedial Magazine Industry Knowledge

We enjoyed seeing that Gawker picked up a video featuring mediabistro.com’s frequent contributor, Greg Lindsay (and wife, Sophie), on Martha discussing their wedding plans. If nothing else, the dapper gent’s blue suit deserves more airtime. (We kid.) Denton’s point was that since Greg and Sophie are media figures, their appearance on Martha as “real people” is questionable. To prove his claim, Gawker’s head honcho writes, “You’d never know from the show that Sophie is now a senior editor at Blueprint, one of Martha Stewart’s magazine titles.”

We guess we agree in theory, except Nick has a problem: Didn’t Blueprint fold? We know you don’t know anything about sports, but c’mon dude, aren’t you suppose to cover the magazine industry?
