When online tabloid Gawker posted a sex tape starring former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, a high-stakes legal battle pitting privacy rights against the First Amendment ensued. Hogan won the case and the staggering settlement he received not only bankrupted Gawker and its founder Nick Denton, but also exposed a controversial, behind-the-scenes benefactor: Silicon Valley venture capitalist Peter Thiel.

Whether you love or hate Gawker, Brian Knappenberger's gripping polemic reveals the forces that really brought down the news portal. Taking examples like Sheldon Adelson's purchase of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, this compelling documentary illustrates a growing, sinister trend at odds with our country's free press. Corporate executives, titans, and billionaires are tipping the balance on the public's access to news, posing new threats to society's relationship to the truth.
