This is the story of how corporate raiding, complacency, excess, and incompetence are gutting a media company that matters to tens of millions of people. A shark-obsessed boss, millions wasted on consultants, and an executive who insisted on publishing softcore porn are more embarrassing buffoonery than insidious greed. This company is Univision, which until recently obligingly filled the role of absentee stepfather to Gizmodo Media Group, our employer. Once upon a time, Univision, an American broadcasting operation aimed primarily at Spanish speakers in the United States, was a tremendous golden goose laying tremendous golden eggs: It made incredible amounts of money and had to do essentially nothing for it other than run programming produced by Televisa, a Mexican broadcasting operation.

Gizmodo Media Group Is Starting a Dedicated Ecommerce Site
District attorney says there wasn't sufficient evidence to prosecute Gizmodo editors for extortion, despite then-Apple CEO Steve Jobs accusing the gadget blog of precisely that. The great iPhone prototype caper of has finally ended, with the two men accused of shopping the device to gadget blogs sentenced to probation yesterday. Investigators suggested at the time that Chen could face criminal charges, and he soon hired a criminal defense attorney. We didn't think it supported either. Wagstaffe said, however, that his office's review of the computers seized from Chen's home showed the correspondence between Gizmodo editors was "juvenile.

Gizmodo Media Group Launches The Inventory To Curate Consumer Products
A California court has granted the request of local prosecutors to withdraw a controversial search warrant against an editor for the tech site Gizmodo over its scoop about the iPhone 4G. Prosecutors reached an agreement with Thomas Nolan, the attorney representing Gizmodo and reporter Jason Chen, to return a computer and other seized items in exchange for "all of the materials in the computer sought by our investigators," San Mateo County Chief Deputy District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe told Wired. The warrant was issued April 23 against Chen, whose Fremont home was searched by authorities while he was away. Asked if Gizmodo will provide police with the names of its sources, Wagstaff replied only that they have agreed with defense attorney Nolan that anything beyond the computer documents — such as what went on around the story, or what his client's motives might have been — would be answered by Nolan, not Chen or Gizmodo. The exchange does not signal the end of the case, however. Police have yet to complete their investigation involving possible theft of the iPhone prototype, which Wagstaffe said will likely be done soon after they receive the documents from Chen and Gizmodo. In April, Gizmodo, which is published by Gawker Media, published a story about a new iPhone prototype that it had received from an anonymous source who came into possession of the device after an Apple engineer named Gray Powell reportedly left it on a bar stool at the Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, California. The source offered the device for sale to several journalists.
