Gawker editor’s position under threat – not enough page views?

Jemima Kiss of the Guardian’s PDA blog (titter) says Gawker boss has fired his site editor after just five months because the site was under performing.

The story talks about not pulling in over 670,000 page views a month. Fair enough – publishers sack editors of newspapers for falling readerships, but this all feels a little grubby if true. Can an editor alone be held responsible for poor page view figures? More so than print publications?

Also, we don’t remember reading about a £4 per post fee for Shiny Media’s bloggers (see comments).
