So apparently Gawker filed chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to pay Hulk Hogan the $180 million he got awarded from his lawsuit against them. They already have someone interested in buying them too. You can either Google it or check up on it here: http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2016/06/10/gawker-media-files-bankruptcy/85699728/ I've read a few articles that said Gawker filed bankruptcy to get out of paying the money. But according to USA Today, they have other creditors. Hogan is just the biggest one. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the second part is true. It just brings to mind that thread someone posted about how 16 companies dominate the search engines. Gawker is one of those companies. They estimate themselves to be worth over $100 million. I'm sure that's because they dominate Google's front page for a ton of search results. But I wonder if that's what got them in trouble in the first place. Not the search results themselves, but the fact that their blog network has grown so huge and popular that they basically thought themselves untouchable. They do have a pretty questionable history with publishing news. I wonder how this will affect them. They said their other sites will continue to run as normal, but will they be more careful with what they publish from now on?
