LOL: "Gawker" Empire Being Put Back Together by Trump-Supporting, Rape-Culture-Denying "Shitlord"

He already bought Gawker itself for a buck twenty seven and some really nice twine, but now he's looking to buy the rest of their SJW Clickbait Factories like Gizmodo, i09, and... Jezebel.

Fragments of the former Gawker empire may soon be reunited — by a scruffy, 35-year-old media mogul who has gotten blasted by some of its snarky sites as a "frat boy," a "f--k boss" and a "self-satisfied s--tlord."

I'm not 100% up on internet lingo, but I think a shitlord is a troll. And I think it's a term usually used by the left to denigrate right-leaning trolls. The left doesn't call its trolls trolls; it calls them "activists."

Bryan Goldberg --a hard-bargaining web entrepreneur who scooped the Gawker site out of bankruptcy for $1.35 million last summer -- is closing in on Gizmodo Media Group with a sweetened takeover bid, The Post has learned.

In addition to its namesake tech blog, Gizmodo owns Deadspin and Jezebel 00 all of which had been controlled by Gawker founder Nick Denton before the group got forced under in 2016 by a $140 million judgement against it for publishing a Hulk Hogan sex tape.

Now, sources say Goldberg has corralled a fresh crew of investors to reunite the sites with a bid for Gizmodo that’s valued between $30 million and $40 million.

A meeting to discuss Goldberg’s offer was cancelled abruptly Thursday — raising questions about Univision’s interest in it.


Things got worse two weeks ago, when Splinter published a takedown of four new hires to run the revamped Gawker site, calling them "media chuds" and uncovering a host of "bigoted" tweets from its editorial director, Carson Griffith.

Days later, Gawker's two new reporters quit, telling the Daily Beast that Goldberg "refuses to listen to the women who work for him when it's inconvenient."

Whine. Why would anyone listen to anybody "when it's inconvenient"?

Splinter got all butthurt and collected up some of Goldberg's social media statements, things like calling global warming claims a con and stuff like that.

It's hysterical that this team might soon be running Jezebel.
