    Aww crap, I missed it. Any chance you’re gonna post the interview here?

  2. Ben Popken says:

    It was but a 8 second soundbite, but we should have video up before the weekend is out.

  3. RumorsDaily says:

    We’re curious to see this “Meghann” you keep referring to.

  4. taylorich says:

    24 STORIES A DAY??? Come on, you can’t expect Consumerist readers to fall for that one! Come clean Ben!

    Just trying to keep you honest…


  5. homerjay says:

    Yeah, last time this happened you were telling people it was 18 stories a day… :)

  6. Hoss says:

    I think you folks are getting confused by the “we” again. Does he mean “The Consumerist”, “Gawker Media”, or Ben, Meghann and the assorted cats under various outlets?

    Oh well, maybe we’ll all agree that “The Consumerist” is among the most active blogs in terms of articles. Not bad for the money

  7. Ben Popken says:

    Last time it happened, Meghann was only doing six stories. Now we’re both doing 12. Before anyone says anything, yes, Friday was short b/c I had to travel and so I’m going to make them up this weekend. But if you look at the posts and count on your fingers and toesies, we’re doing 24.

  8. Hoss says:

    i only got up to 20 using fingers and toesies…anyone get anything different?

  9. AcilletaM says:

    Don’t forget a round-up/best of/Wal-Mart Nazi shirt/etc post counts…

  10. RumorsDaily says:

    Subtract 20 for Walmart Nazi shirts and we’re back down to 4.

    I actually like the Walmart Nazi shirt coverage though, don’t take it away from me.

    i only got up to 20 using fingers and toesies…anyone get anything different?
