Media He Blogged, She Blogged

Yesterday Dan deigned to sully the Slog with indirect acknowledgment of Emily Gould, the former Gawker blogger responsible for the ten-page kiss-and-tell-and-then-have-a-panic-attack-on-the-bathroom-floor cover story of last week’s New York Times Magazine.
As the comments to Dan’s post show, Gould got a lot of (deserved) shit for her monumental overshare. But for what it’s worth, he kinda started it—he being Gawker alum Joshua David Stein, who dissected his relationship and breakup with Emily Gould for Page Six Magazine the week before Emily Gould dissected her relationship and breakup with Josh Stein in The New York Times Magazine.
Page Six versus the Times? Clearly she’s the winner. However, she’s also responsible for this:
I hereby promise never to mention her or him ever again, unless one or both of them commits suicide or attempts to assassinate a public figure.
