BREAKING: Gawker To End Operations Next Week

"Libertarian" Peter Theil is successful in his decade-long revenge operation.


Via Gawker:
After nearly fourteen years of operation, will be shutting down next week. The decision to close Gawker comes days after Univision successfully bid $135 million for Gawker Media’s six other websites, and four months after the Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel revealed his clandestine legal campaign against the company.
Nick Denton, the company’s outgoing CEO, informed current staffers of the site’s fate on Thursday afternoon, just hours before a bankruptcy court in Manhattan will decide whether to approve Univision’s bid for Gawker Media’s other assets. The near-term plans for’s coverage, as well as the site’s archives, have not yet been finalized.


  1. So, are you saying that libertarians cannot do revenge operations?

    1. If he spent one quarter of the money wasted trying to destroy Gawker on Mises scholarships he would change history. Instead he comes off as a douche.

  2. Peter is so "Libertarian" he's taken money from the CIA's In-Q-Tel so that his company, Palantir, can make way through the government defense contracting business:

    If Peter is a Libertarian, I'm a Social Justice Warrior.

  3. He may not be a Pure libertarian, but there is nothing anti-libertarian about revenge. Retribution is a bitch

  4. So thew is some good news once in a while?
