NEW MEDIA FIGHT: 'GAWKER' PIE LIES AT 'RADAR' PARTY
It's official. The emerging New Media Wars in New York have turned ugly.
GAWKER/WONKETTE.COM founder Nick Denton claims a pie-throw directed at
him last night at Hotel QT in NYC during the RADAR mag relaunch party
was "a dud...merely grazing the hair."
"A pie went flying through the air toward Denton's head, completely missing it," mocked another dispatch.
But as this photo shows, Denton took the pie full on, raising questions
about Denton's ability to report the truth about an event -- even when
he was there and directly involved!
