Watch Gawker Boss Nick Denton Squirm When NBC Asks Him Why He Published Brian Williams' Email

Gawker media got a big profile from NBC’s Primetime news magazine “Rock centre.”

There’s not a lot of new stuff in there, but at the 9:05 marker you can see Denton squirm when he’s asked why he burned Brian Williams and published a private email on Gawker.

In case you missed it, or you forgot, Williams sent an email to Denton saying Gawker should shred Lana Del Rey for her awful performance on SNL. New Gawker editor AJ Daulerio promptly published the email embarrassing Williams, and apparently, Denton.

Also of note, NBC says Denton is thinking about an art and culture site.
