Gawker founder Nick Denton on The Daily Beast launch

The founder of US blog network Gawker Media, Nick Denton, has raised doubts about how successful veteran magazine editor Tina Brown’s new web venture, The Daily Beast, will become.

Denton told the International Herald Tribune he felt the site, unveiled this week, was too cluttered and “has to be simpler to work”, and added: “I’ll definitely read [it], but I don’t think there are that many of me.”

The Daily Beast went live on Monday. One of its first exclusives was an interview with actress and singer Jennifer Lopez, which was reported to have been spiked by a magazine.
