Gawker Media founder Nick Denton acknowledges that his websites have to be held responsible what what they publish. He thinks the same should be true of much larger platforms like Facebook.
"There are bullying scandals everyday of the week," Denton said Thursday at the Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. "The barriers aren't there."
Denton was a late addition to the Code agenda, agreeing to make an appearance after news surfaced that billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel was funding lawsuits against Gawker.
