Idolater, Gawker Media's red-headed music stepchild (full-disclosure: Idolater thinks I need some writing lessons) has a full investigation into the "scandal" surrounding this year's Pazz and Jop music critic's poll.
This could be of interest to you for two reasons: Either you remember Bill Jensen, the purported writer of the missive under discussion here, as the former editor of the Boston Phoenix (double disclosure: I've written for Bill before). Or you just really like gossip. Whatever. Wear your mouthguard -- this is going to get ugly.
