After 75 percent of Gawker editorial employees voted "yes" on Wednesday, the company is on track to become the first digital publication to unionize. Asked on HuffPost Live on Friday which media outlet he'd like to see follow in Gawker's now-unionized footsteps, Denton said he would be interested in how Vice would handle the collective bargaining process.

"It would be interesting to see Vice unionize next, just simply because it would be interesting to see how Shane Smith would handle it. It would be good theatre," Denton told host Marc Lamont Hill.
