In the new book, “Conspiracy: Peter Thiel, Hulk Hogan, Gawker, and the Anatomy of Intrigue,” author Ryan Holiday examines the threads of an incredible legal battle and tale of revenge that disrupted the world of media.
Holiday joined Ben Domenech on the Federalist Radio to share the behind-the-scenes of this story and what precedents it sets.
“It’s not until two months later when Thiel is unmasked that the New York Times and essentially all media outlets flip out,” Holiday said.
“The precedent legally is much less than anyone thinks. The precedent culturally…that a few individuals working in secret can have massive implications on the discourse or relationship with technology is the real precedent.”
