G/O Media, owners of the Onion and other old Gawker Media titles, will attempt to restart the site in Chicago after mass resignations in October 2019. Former employees resisted the owner's guidelines to only focus on sports content and avoid polarizing political and cultural articles. Employees balked and Deadspin has been unable to re-staff the site. The site is still operational but publishes stories without bylines. "It is our goal—and one that we hope is mutual—to restart the Deadspin publication as soon as possible and in a manner that provides both editorial freedom necessary for such a platform and the business focus to ensure its long-term sustainability," Spanfeller said.
