"Gawker is now beginning the process of challenging the jury's verdict in a trial where key evidence was wrongly withheld and the jury was not properly instructed on the Constitutional standards for newsworthiness, So we expect to be fully vindicated. And even if the verdict were to stand, there is no justification for awarding tens of millions of dollars never seen by victims of death and serious injuries."First let's go over the statements by Gawker's Most Successful editor (or former, since he had left Gawker in 2013) and the one who published the sex tape AJ Daulerio
Remember that whole Daulerio is OK with publishing child pornography as long as the child is over four years old for the sake of "newsworthiness"thing...
(It's long and hard to look at, but it's supposedly, the raw court footage.)
THAT is why people took it hard on Gawker. Their people are so snarky and dickish to make jokes about child pornography being newsworthy enough to be published made the jury side with the Adulterer, Terry Bollea. The Jury saw fit to Punish Gawker where it hurts the most, money. They agreed that Gawker pretty much killed what was left of Hulk Hogan's career, to the point that WWE gave Hogan the Benoit Treatment. That's why they ARE USING THEIR POWER TO PUNISH Gawker. It's that simple.
Gawker, you dun goofed!
