Media Monday mêlée

Mar 17, 2014

Dorian Nakamoto has released an official "statement/denial," tweets Reuters finance blogger Felix Salmon, who adds, "Very interested to see how @newsweek @truth_eater @jimpoco respond." At the NYT, Farhad Manjoo points out, "Among other things, Dorian says he can't afford internet service." Which might make it hard to found bitcoin, we're just guessing.

From the Business Insider comes a happy announcement that it's received an additional investment of $12 million, bringing its total to roughly $30 million. But as Michael Wolff explores that news in a piece for USA Today, that's not necessarily such a good thing.  Josh Sternberg with Digiday summarizes, "Wolff believes Business Insider, BuzzFeed, Gawker, et al are not sustainable businesses." The Street's Rocco Pendola was not convinced, however: "That’s a bull shit piece."

An even happier announcement comes from the Today Show's Savannah Guthrie, who tied the knot with Mike Feldman over the weekend. "We did!" Guthrie tweeted, sharing this twitpic. We hear she's pregnant, too! Congratulations to Savannah and Mike.
