Investigative reporter John Cook is the latest Gawker alum to be called back by Nick Denton's siren song, hopefully not to be smashed on the rocks of Gawker Media island. Cook joins Choire Sicha, Jessica Coen, Richard Lawson, Moe Tkacik, and Doree Shafrir on the list of bloggers who freed the wax from their ears, however temporarily, and returned to the fold. According to Andrew Golis, Cook's former editor at Yahoo's The Upshot, Cook couldn't resist the lure of adding "his opinions into his reporting." [Andrew Golis]
