Ben Collins makes an excellent point. But which "rich person" is he referring to, Peter Thiel or Nick Denton? It's not like Nick Denton isn't the "Peter Thiel" to the people Gawker et al. has unfairly attacked who aren't wealthy enough to defend themselves, aka 99.9% of them. Peter Thiel is a disgusting human being. But that doesn't mean another rich guy should get to decide what is news and what isn't with impunity.
