Today Gawker pulled the story – because Geithner was not conservative.
From the The Hollywood Reporter:

“It was an editorial call, a close call around which there were more internal disagreements than usual. And it is a decision I regret.”

Gawker has pulled its controversial story about Condé Nast CFO David Geithner allegedly soliciting a gay escort.

Gawker managing editor Nick Denton released the following statement: “Yesterday evening, Gawker.com published a story about the CFO of Conde Nast texting an escort. It was an editorial call, a close call around which there were more internal disagreements than usual. And it is a decision I regret … The point of this story was not in my view sufficient to offset the embarrassment to the subject and his family.”

“It is the first time we have removed a significant news story for any reason other than factual error or legal settlement,” Denton wrote.

Shortly after the story posted, Gawker editor-in-chief Max Read defended it, writing on Twitter, “Given the chance Gawker will always report on married c-suite executives of major media companies f—ing around on their wives.”

Read also reportedly told a journalist via email, “A high-level executive at a powerful media organization f—ed around on his wife and attempted to trade favors to kill the story. If you don’t see how that’s a news story, I don’t know what to tell you.”

The story, written by Gawker’s Jordan Sargent, detailed an rendezvous allegedly planned between a male escort and Geithner and was widely criticized as excessively invasive journalism.
