Gawker Media Launches Consumerist

We here at Gawker Media love to spend our money, but we hate being treated like cattle while we do it. And so our big happy family is proud to announce the birth of our latest site: Consumerist, our answer to the utter fuckitude of modern capitalism.

Edited by former Gizmodo editor and cantankerous consumer Joel Johnson, Consumerist highlights the persistent, shameless boners of modern consumerism and the latest hot deals, discounts, and freebies around. It's the anti-shopping shopping site, the place for your annoyance with lame products. Your anger toward automated phone systems. Your frustration with crap customer service. Your hatred of mentally incompetent sales associates who just won't get off the freaking phone so you can pay the bill. And your love of a truly fantastic purchase.

The Consumerist knows your passion and your rage, and it wants to help.
