DESCRIPTION
When online tabloid Gawker posted a sex tape of former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, a high-stakes legal battle pitting privacy rights against the First Amendment ensued. The staggering settlement Hogan ultimately received not only bankrupted Gawker, but exposed a controversial, behind-the-scenes drama as it exposed a shadowy figure behind it all: Silicon Valley venture capitalist Peter Thiel. "Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press" uses this case & other cases to illustrate a growing, sinister trend at odds with the concept of a free press: billionaires & politicians tipping the balance against the publics access to information, posing threats to our relationship to the truth. Join director Brian Knappenberger as he discusses the film.
