It’s happening. It’s really happening:

Venture capitalist Peter Thiel has made an offer for Gawker, hoping to overcome legal hurdles and rival bidders for the online news site the billionaire helped shutter by funding litigation against it, people familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

Gawker, which has been inactive for more than a year, is conducting an auction of its remaining assets, including its domain names and nearly 200,000 archived articles. Most of its assets, including its sister pages Deadspin, a sports site, and Jezebel, a feminist blog, were bought in 2016 for $135 million by media company Univision Holdings Inc.

Thiel funded former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan’s lawsuit against Gawker after the site published a sex tape featuring Hogan. The former wrestler, whose real name is Terry Bollea, won a $140 million judgment against the site, and later settled for $31 million.

Gawker in 2007 published a story about Thiel’s homosexuality.

Justice doesn’t get much more poetic than that. But Glenn Greenwald finds all this very disturbing, you guys:

Ha!

Greenwald should really save his breath.

Greenwald can huff and puff as much as he wants. Doesn’t change the fact that Thiel can do what he wants with his money.
