Mediaite is a news and opinion blog covering politics and entertainment in the media industry. It is the flagship blog of Abrams Media, a ring of blogs run by ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams and also featuring Gossip Cop, Geekosystem, Styleite, Sports Grid, The Mary Sue, The Maude, and The Braiser. Described by Abrams as "for the media, about the media and part of the new media," it features regular columns, an extensive video library, and the "Power Grid" that ranks media personalities by influence.
Abrams currently serves as the site's publisher and launched the site in July 2009 with former editor Colby Hall. In an interview with The Washington Post, founding managing editor Colby Hall described the site as "Huffington Post meets Gawker." In December of 2011, Hall left Mediaite for Clear Channel. Source
