Not Chosen, Just Posin'

I just got a job with a Jewish magazine. I'm not Jewish. They think I am.

A chain of emails concerning the Gawker "conspiracy."

Background: Gawker tried to out me last Friday. My friends and I sent in a series of fake tips (don't pretend you wouldn't do the same), so that in case they actually had a real tip, it would be jumbled in with the fake ones. Fortunately, they didn't get any real tips (and still have no clue who I am or where I work) and they ran all the fake ones, wherein we told them I might even be Jewish. Then I called them on it (shown below). Finally, they got a "real scoop" (others might call it a hypothesis based on assumption) from someone who works in the very same building as the guys at Commentary! The slick tipster said that there's no way that I was hanging out with someone from Commentary at Bookspan, and again, this she knows because she works really darn close to the guys at Commentary! Basically, she wants to see her writing in print (my guess is she'll probably throw the clip in her portfolio and try to pass it on as a legitimate article).


As a side note: During my dealings with Gawker's inane editor, I also realized that all the tips Gawker is using to report on Joe Dulce from Star magazine are from someone who hasn't worked there in over a year. So if they report that "an insider at Star reports that Joe Dulce is depressed," they kinda mean that he was depressed back in '05. I'm sure all of their stories are equally credible. Enjoy!

...by Abe Ben Gurion, Sam Pearlman and the chick who gives you all the Joe Dolce/Star info? Coincidentally, they're my friends. No real tips yet?

I think you need new friends. Unfortunately, yeah, that was it. Apparently no one cares about you.

No one except you, love. Why didn't you guys cover Bookspan? It is media related and all...

Bookspan= yawn. So when do I get to see your boobs? Do I actually have to buy you dinner?

Ha! Nice update with the third party source who wants to act like she knows something even though she doesn't work at commentary and wasn't at bookspan. It's basically scientific evidence. You guys are rockin' it!

No response yet. I'll let you know. For now, back to business as usual...
