Episode 125: Tarpley's Hitt Job Reveals The Sad State Of Gawker 2.0 And We Remember The Railroading Of Andy Signore

And you may not know the name “Andy Signore,” but if you do it’s probably because he was rather comprehensively #MeTooed back in 2017. Except he provided a lot of evidence to suggest he was innocent — evidence all the media outlets that piled on him seem to have ignored.
