As of this morning, Gawker’s post from yesterday, “Exclusive: Sarah Palin’s Personal Emails,” had 750,000 pageviews. The post went up at 1:03 p.m. “Pareene is about to get PAID,” a Gawker staff member said via IM yesterday, of that post’s author, Alex Pareene, just after the post went live. (A majority of the staff there receive money based on traffic volume.) True! He was about to get paid. Also, funnily enough, a post called “Group Posts E-Mail Hacked From Palin Account” had gone up on Wired at 12:50 p.m. yesterday.
