Anyone feel like looking away from the political primary shitshow long enough to check in on Gawker’s ongoing shitshow?
A few highlights:
- Charles Harder (the attorney pursuing the litigation) had no idea he was being paid by Peter Thiel until Forbes reported it.
- Apparently Thiel was also behind the unpaid interns’ lawsuit.
- Shiva Ayyadurai (the alleged inventor of email) denies receiving funding from any third party.
-Let’s speculate on which employee this is! “‘For a long time the lawsuits seemed like karmic retribution for skating so close to the edge,’ says a current Gawker employee. ‘But for once, Nick Denton’s conspiracy theories turned out to be true.’”
