New Gawker blog just launched: Jezebel. It's pitching itself as the anti-women's-mag mag. From an email: "Jezebel's mission is to cover celebrity, sex, and fashion for women -- without airbrushing. Think of it as the sort of women's media property that could never see the light of day in traditional print because the big-name advertisers and the publishers who kowtow to them don't much like it when someone points out the vulgarity of a $2,000 handbag." Doy, the editors are hot.


wow. so that i can continue reading your blog, i'm gonna assume that final comment was sarcasm or irony and not as asinine as it sounds.

There are so many conflicts of editorial integrity at Jezebel one assumes that must be the point. Railing against women's magazines while spouting a newer/hipper/hotter form of meta flagellation is complete bullshit.
