Retweeted by Mathew IngramBecause of course the courts are always right, and filing vexatious lawsuits never costs anyone money is a pretty fair and balanced appraisal by @asymmetricinfo, as usual @aragusea Way too subtle and nuanced for the morning of a holiday weekend, Adam :-) @WhatTheBit Yes, that review confirmed my worst fears after watching the trailer. Full of sound and fury, but signifying littleCats can be dicks -- episode #3,013,547

Retweeted by Mathew IngramNYT: Yes, we pulled a Gawker move to smoke out the billionaire trying to kill Gawker.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThe editors agonized before rejecting the other headline: "Tenzin Norgay carries white man to top of Everest."
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @raju a culture of optimize around what "performs well" even if it kills your brand and repution, because only one is measured hourly

"Gawker dies so its journalism can live" @i_robertyoung How do you know? 😀Amazing story @aragusea It was a typo, but I kind of like it the way it is 😀Breakdown of a three day weekend: Friday - immortal Saturday - euphoric Sunday - triumphant Monday - main character at end of greek tragedy

Retweeted by Mathew IngramOn the shutting down of LiveRail. @theinformation scoop in March.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThought that piece was a lot more balanced than the headline suggests
Retweeted by Mathew IngramAmazing number of Silicon Valley plutocrats/sycophants/wannabes who claim Gawker was only trash posts, and no great journalism at all. Nuts.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @dangillmor Yes, I meant to say "good question" but it works the way it is too 😀 @IvanTheK Yeah, I meant to say "good question," but I'm just going to leave it @mathewi's Love/Hate Relationship w/ Twitter @aaronnewcomb @gigastacey @leolaporte

Retweeted by Mathew IngramThis is a mind-bogglingly bizarre story a stupid time to be alive.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramIf Trump's strategy is to rely on "earned" media that means the people who grant it to him are part of his campaign.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramPretty sure Marc was responding to this one, not sure why it's not showing up we would have 100% less of that makes some good points, I have to say @juhasaarinen I have high standards 😀Everyone wants to see power challenged, just as long as it's not their power or their friends' power @vkhosla: I wish Gawker was like a 30% more mature version of itself. But basically I think we want to encourage journalists to take risks.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @impcapital I'm sorry things got so heated there. It is a difficult issue, no questionSilicon Valley's message to the media is clear: Treat us the way we want to be treated or we might retaliate
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @impcapital @jaymarose I would enjoy that @chrisFnicholson @mariabustillos It's possible I could be wrong. That's just my interpretation of what would likely be covered by the 1st A @impcapital Do you know anything about me, or what I think or believe? Or are you just looking for someone to swear at and belittle? @impcapital I'm not saying I'm smarter than the entire legal system, I'm just providing an opinion on a specific decision @chrisFnicholson @mariabustillos Seems to me that would be coveredSorry, I thought you were interested in discussing this topic rationally. Guess I was mistaken @AureliaCotta @murdochdavis yes, those laws seem to have gone out of fashionHe made it very clear in his NYT interview that that was his intention @chrisFnicholson @mariabustillos @mathewi Brett Michaels lawsuits say otherwise as precedent. Said news reports could run clips.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @chrisFnicholson @mathewi had Gawker posted "a sex tape" rather than a minute, blurry excerpt illustrating an essay, I'd agree.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @chrisFnicholson @mathewi Florida's 2DCA has already suggested you're wrong there.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramDoes have the right to do wrong, & libel chill is a real result. Should courts ask who's funding? #media #journalism

Retweeted by Mathew IngramCrucial question found 64% of judges say they would like to know if lawyers in case are having bills paid by someone else.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI think the main point is that the First Amendment protects even content that some find deeply offensive @raju @lockyear thanks Raju :-)Does Thiel have the right to secretly fund multiple lawsuits with the sole intention of bankrupting a media co? of my bio is taken from this satirical essay didn't ask me about those cases, you asked me about a sex tape @smc90 According to unsealed testimony, he knew he was being recorded @IvanTheK Frivolous is overstating it. Just saying lower-court judges and juries can be wrongIf I have already boasted about this in public repeatedly, then yes @IvanTheK And other judges have made the exact opposite decision @IvanTheK because you can use lawsuits to bankrupt a company even if they ultimately have no meritA single jury, that too protects a lot more than Peter Thiel and his friends seem willing to admit point is, the 1st A protects free speech/free press. Thiel is trying to bankrupt a company for what it published. That's a 1st A issueNew York Times staffer -->
