Yes, as we mentioned yesterday, Gawker is slated to end operations next week, which has former editor Max Read asking himself (and others) "Did I Kill Gawker?" In response, freelancer Jay Rosen points out, "This part is truly important. In a very real way, Gawker didn't know what it was anymore." And Ashley Feinberg says the only thing that would make them feel better is if you sent them Trump's tax returns. "This would be quite a blaze of glory to go out in," acknowledges WaPo's Mike Madden. "BRB—giving @ashleyfeinberg a dry-cleaning bill for making me spew green tea across my shirt," admits Greg Greene

"What if Milo Yiannopoulos is actually a giant troll trying to destroy the mens' rights community from the inside?" muses Daily Beast's Betsy Woodruff.

Meanwhile, concerns have been raised about the Toronto Star's "toxic" workplace culture in the aftermath of reporter’s death. "Listen to women," advises BuzzFeed Canada's Scaachi Koul.
