Don’t steal Gawker’s newspapers!

-- sign on Gawker's door

“Yes, the digital news company does get the newspaper in print form,” writes Alex Kantrowitz. “And yes, it does get stolen time to time. And Gawker is pissed.” (A Gawker staffer tells me “that sign has been there for a LONG time.” An ongoing problem?)

UPDATE: Gawker Media’s Julia Alvidrez has a suspect: “I think it’s a drunk guy that I often see wobbling around the street in the mornings. The sign was meant as a guilt tactic, and drunks have a hard time remembering to feel guilty.”

Gawker Media office manager Max Kutner says the online news outfit only gets all 3 of its newspapers about 3 days a week, so some are still going missing.
