Airdate: Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press
Netflix premieres a doco about the lawsuit between Gawker Media & wrestler Hulk Hogan.
Tomorrow Netflix premieres the documentary feature Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press a film about the lawsuit between Gawker Media and wrestler Hulk Hogan.
Hogan won a whopping $US115 million from the trial (a tad more than Rebel Wilson is seeking) before reaching a $31 million dollar settlement.
This premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
The trial between wrestler Hulk Hogan and Gawker Media pitted privacy rights against freedom of the press, but ended up as a case study in how big money can silence media through legal means. A film by Brian Knappenberger, Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press is an examination of the perils and duties of the free press in an age of inequality.
Friday June 23 on Netflix.
