Univision is buying Gawker Media for $135 million. Gawker Media declared bankruptcy after Hulk Hogan won $140 million in court from the company for Gawker's publication of a sex tape. Univision is primarily a Spanish-language broadcast company and will own all seven of Gawker's websites. These include Gawker.com, Deadspin and Jezebel. The deal will go through once a bankruptcy judge approves.
