Just because Hulk Hogan's connected billionaire conspirator could afford it, we lose Gawker. Screw Hulk Hogan - he killed Gawker.

|Yes, let us all weep for that fine institution of journalistic pedigree.|
From everything I've read and seen involving Gawker, it's a joke of a site that publishes drivel masquerading as journalism. Their "stories" are often at the expense of others and tend to involve some level of of invasion of privacy. They've had so many controversies over the years it was really only a matter of time before someone took them to the cleaners.
I say kudos to Hogan & Thiel.

|Good Riddance. Their site was mostly clickbait trash. Hopeful the new company fires all the terrible writers.|

|Will not be missed. No sense of editorial responsibility, poorly-researched, invective, name-calling articles. Bought up a bunch of other sites that didn't suck (io9, Lifehacker, Jalopnik, arguably Deadspin), infected those sites with their culture and attitude, and made them the worse for it.|
When they want protection under the law, they're a "news organization". When they're expected to take some kind of responsibility for what they publish, it's "why are you picking on us? We're just a blog."

|Gawker did some horrible, ridiculous stuff. Gawker did plenty of good stuff too. I will miss them quite a bit.|

|Good riddance. So few actual journalism sites any more...we're infected by this British tabloid trash and we've put our own nasty spin on it.|
Sites like these and the lack of true objective journalism are why I don't watch the news and I rarely even read the news any more...it's all click bait gossip, political hacks, and alarmism. My life is much happier for the lack of being immersed in that filth.
