In2016, one of the giants of modern journalism fell: Gawker Media, infamous forsaying what other outlets wouldn't say, was sued for publishing Hulk Hogan'ssex tape, lost the case and went bust. After countless other lawsuits itseemed that Gawker had finally run out of luck. But luck had nothing to dowith it. PeterThiel, PayPal founder and billionaire investor, had masterminded the wholething. Still furious at an article that had outed him ten years previously,and increasingly disgusted at Gawker's unscrupulous reporting methods, Thielhad spent nearly a decade meticulously plotting a conspiracy that would leadto the demise of Gawker and its founder, Nick Denton. After a multi-yearproxy war through the Florida legal system, the settlement of $140million infavour of Hogan ended it.Theverdict would stun the world and so would Peter's ultimate unmasking as theman who had set it all in motion. Why had he done this? How had no onediscovered it? What would this mean--for free speech? For privacy? Forculture?InHoliday's masterful telling of this nearly unbelievable conspiracy, informedby exclusive interviews with all the key players, this case transcends thenarrative of how one billionaire took down a media empire or the currentstate of the free press. It's a study in power, strategy, and one of the mostwildly ambitious - and successful - secret plots in recent memory.
