Snippet -

By now, you've probably heard that Terry Bollea, better known by his stage moniker of Hulk Hogan, has won his lawsuit against Nick Denton and Gawker Media. In fact, the court's decision went beyond the original $100 million that was sought and awards Hogan an extra $15 million in damages. Keep in mind that this combined $115 million that Nick Denton's Gawker has been ordered to pay doesn't yet take into account punitive damages. These further damages are set to be decided upon by the jury at the end of this month.

But Nick Denton isn't the hardest hit by Gawker's $115 million loss.

Instead, the real losers of the #HulkVSGawker lawsuit are every single current and former employee of Gawker Media. Think about it. A Florida court has just judged Gawker Media to be the most unethical of muckrakers when it comes to journalism of any sort. To make matters worse, Gawker's former Editor-in-Chief A.J. Daulerio has apparently given us such brilliant (sarcasm, of course!) commentary on how he believes child pornography would be in the "public interest" if it contained the children of celebrities "over the age of four."


The title was great - - what goes around comes around.

Hulk Hogan jury hears Gawker’s plea for mercy as punitive phase begins


Hulk Hogan jury adds $25.1 million to Gawker's liability in sex tape case


No matter what, Gawker will have to cough up a lot of money to appeal the case - - and spend even more during so. Let the beast bleed to death in the process.

Key Denton, how's business these days?
:evil:

Gawker is hurting.

No one but founder Nick Denton and his closest insiders know the full impact of the $140 million verdict rendered against Gawker in the Hulk Hogan trial that ended yesterday. An appeal will follow; a billionaire Russian investor is onboard. Although questions outnumber answers, it is safe to say that Gawker is wounded, and in order to survive, it may be forced to find content that drives page views and ad revenue without clickbait like Hulk Hogan's sex tape or similar invasions of privacy.

A search for metrics by which to measure the impact of Gawker's courtroom defeat produced some interesting reveals. Editorial content is presently stagnant. Gawker Media Limited, the parent company, has changed its name in official filings in England to Greenmount Creek Limited, effective March 4.


Burn baby burn!

Nick Denton just posted a Gawker article addressing the Hogan verdict.

The Hogan Verdict

Denton is putting out a lot of industrial salt. :lol:

Nowwhere in the idiotic rant did he say why it should have been released. Other than people are titillated by celebrity sex tapes.

Which by that very definition makes any claim of being a "journalist" go right out the window.

It was clickbait to sell ad revenue. It was a stolen tape, therefore stolen property that they knowingly posted for profit.

It's nice to watch that shithole burn.

Nick Denton fires back: We will win on appeal because Hulk is a racist (pretty much)

Yes, that's a TL;DR headline but I'm trying to sum up the argument that I just read over at Gawker - and I had a feeling he would pull this, I called it a week ago. Nick Denton the puppet-master behind the Gawker media gossip blogs, is apparently the kind of guy who kicks you in the balls when you've knocked him down. Barking up a storm in his post The Hogan Verdict, he attempts an impressive DARVO move trying to pin all of this fail on Hulk Hogan himself. DARVO stands for "Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender." and is a classic reaction that perpetrators display when they are held accountable for their behaviour.
