Killing a few minutes, I glanced through the comments to Dayna’s Medium post and saw where Rosena Sammi had linked an interview she had done with Heather Dietrick, Gawker’s President and General Counsel for A Lawyer’s Life.
Sammi made the point in her comment that Dayna’s post had come after her interview was conducted, so she was only able to ask Dietrick about it as a follow-up, which she put in the introduction to her post.
Lots of info about the legal side of Gawker and her professional history. For those interested, definitely worth a read.
Maybe also worth scrolling for the Gawker screening room pic.
