They have a total revenue of about 45 million net. Seriously, it happened, they finally got bitch slapped for their flagrantly criminal disrespect of privacy. Excuse me while I go cheering about it. What is Gawker (and why does Brovo hate it?) (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Gawker Media is one of the largest blogging networks out there, dedicated exclusively toward publishing ideological garbage and privacy-violating trash about celebrities. This isn't new, they had a stalker board specifically to take "anonymous tips" from random people about where celebrities were, and what they were doing, so they could send people to take pictures and stalk them. Even if said celebrities were on private property. Gawker Media are the type of garbage eating scumbags to take photos of naked women in their own homes and publish them on the Internet with titles like "deranged nude celebrity dances in front of window." Among their blog network are other particularly infamous sites of complete and utter garbage, which include but are not limited to... Jezebel: A website dedicated exclusively to creating conspiracy theories about the patriarchy, which include stalking and harassing women who refuse to label themselves as feminists. So basically, a website dedicated to witch hunts. Nice. Kotaku: A website that is supposedly about gaming journalism, which was caught up in controversy after it decided to burn its own user base and declare "gamers are dead" and "gamers are sexist." Regardless of how you feel about GamerGate (I thought it was pretty stupid myself) this website exists solely to produce drama and, once in a while, remember to review games. Sometimes. Lifehacker: Have you ever been fucking irritated at incorrect "life hacks" or at the very term itself never seeming to go away in spite of how stupid it is? You have this website to thank for that. It's a solid 50/50 shot as to whether the advice it offers you is true or false, and it too occasionally stirs up controversy over it. Now that's not to say that every blog site under the Gawker wing is terrible. They also have Gizmodo, and, um... ... Yeah no Gizmodo is pretty much the only semi-redeemable blog they have on their network. The rest are useless or filled with controversy. Take that for whatever it means to you. This is essentially the epitome of a network that is absolutely fucking cancerous. They don't provide any service that isn't better provided by pretty much anyone else. They ruin people's lives on a regular basis just to make clickbait articles to get them money. They're essentially the very worst of what media is capable of. The fact that they're getting burned more than two years worth of their net revenue in a lawsuit is beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing these hyenas leap upon each other to desperately try to stay afloat, and I love the precedence this sets: That people's privacy is not a fucking commodity. Fuck these people. Just felt like sharing that, for once, common decency won out over banal greed.
