Liberal news website becomes latest to shut down, with parent company suggesting it wasn’t able to establish an audience

Left-leaning news and opinion site Splinter announced Thursday it was shutting down, with its parent company suggesting there was not an audience to support it.

“As of today, Splinter will cease publication. It has been my greatest honor to have been the editor of this site and I will love this staff to my dying breath,” Chan wrote.

Maidment asserted that there would be “no reduction” in the workforce and that Splinter staffers would be “reallocated” to other sites within the company.

G/O Media oversees several websites, including A/V Club, Deadspin, Gizmodo, Jezebel, and The Onion.
