The Choire Sicha Roast

What Is This? Who Is Choire Sicha, & Why Is He Being Roasted?

Choire Sicha is a journalist and gadfly in New York City.

He famously calls The New York Observer and The Morning News home, but Mr. Sicha is, of course, best known as the bitchy editor of the New York-centric, media-enthusiastic voyeurs’ Web log, Gawker, a point which he takes great pains to avoid mentioning in print. Recently, he retired from the blogospheric forefront to become “editorial director” for Gawker Media, which sounds like a cushy no-show job if ever there was one. Among his scattershot journalism, he is a book reviewer for The New York Post and Times, where he snarkily deconstructs the chickiest chick-lit on the shelves.

Anyway, in the spirit of He Who Dishes It Should Be Able To Take It As Well, Yankee Pot Roast cheerfully administers a well deserved Roasting.
