And another branch of the Gizmodo Media Group has gotten the axe:
Apparently there won’t even be a farewell post on the site; the news is being spread via comments (where I heard it) and Twitter.
This is not a good sign.
Several of the other Gizmodo divisions have their own news forks, like Jezebel and the Root, and GMG has announced that they will reassign staff to other departments “where possible.” But several employees have already announced they’ve been let go and are looking for work.
The journalism may not have always been excellent, but their snarky and sometimes silly tone made keeping up with bad news a little easier.
