Los Angeles Times—Deadspin's deputy editor said he was fired for refusing to "stick to sports," then the site saw the rest of its journalists quit in solidarity. G/O Media says it made the decision based on audience data. But its numbers don't add up.
Deadspin staffers quit in droves after being told to ‘stick to sports’. After a senior editor was fired, at least six of Deadspin’s 10 staff writers announced on Wednesday that they, too, were leaving.
