    Earlier this month Spanfeller informed GMG Union, the WGA East-affiliated local that reps many G/O editorial employees, that he was cutting off negotiations with the union regarding Deadspin and that G/O Media would relocate the publication in Chicago, where G/O-owned The Onion is based. Deadspin’s new editorial team will be covered under the Onion Local (which also is affiliated with WGA East).

    Remember the days when this would have been something The Onion wrote as satire?

    Easy way to avoid that is to stay off Twitter.

    Which defeats the purpose of being an online-only writer. Fuck, even Ray Ratto's on Twitter.

    It does? Why? Let the publication pub your link

    People want to follow people, not publications.
