New York magazine's feature on NY Times business reporter/Dealbook blogger/all-around wunderkind Andrew Ross Sorkin reports, "Sources say he earns $250,000, including a bonus that is based, in part, on the financial performance of the various DealBook properties (Sorkin disputes the number, but won’t be more specific). He is among the highest-paid staffers at the paper." Gawker, which is waiting for a comment from Sorkin, reads it this way: "Sounds an awful lot like a pageview bonus to us. Which is an ugly practice that distorts news judgment and induces reporters to chase down attention-grabbing and salacious gossip rather than substantive information and is the province of unscrupulous blogs that are killing journalism. And also the New York Times, apparently."
