Jimmy Kimmel goes after Gawker, and it's awesome - VIDEO

kimmel and gawkerThis clip is worth it for the reaction of Gawker editor Emily Gould. She seems completely shocked and unprepared.

Jimmy Kimmel was guest host on Larry King Live on Friday night, and the topic was gossip, celebrity stalking, and the various celeb mags and web sites. Though usually irreverent, Kimmel was dead serious about confronting Gould about the many false or mistaken sightings that readers (or as Gould calls them, "citizen journalists," gag) sent into Gawker Stalker.

Kimmel was upset in particular about a sighting that said he was drunk and loud, when in reality he was sober and coming home from a kid's birthday party with an elderly aunt and uncle. Not only is Gould stunned by Kimmel's seriousness, she's woefully ill-equipped to defend herself. Though I guess I have to give Gawker a little bit of credit for putting the video on their site and writing about it, but I guess any publicity...etc, etc.

Someone in the comments says that Rachel Dratch should play Gould in the movie version of Gawker, and that's spot on.
