9:10 am
reports our cover story. >> nick den ton is not a household name. but he is the bane of those who are. denton is the founder of gawker media a collection of seven online blogs that feed on sensational stories, often having to do with celebrities. >> i think it's a good name, a famous name. >> but it means to stare stupidly. >> it means to stare, stupidly might be one of the definitions. we have a little bit of sense of humor about what we do, too. >> with the internet largely unregulated denton and his crew have been able to gawk at just about anything until one of their celebrity targets took them on in a st. petersburg, florida, courtroom. >> completely humiliated. >> terry bollea, seen here when he was still wrestling professionally under the name of
9:11 am
hulk hogan sued denton and gawker for invasion of privacy. he says his life has not been the same since 2012 when gawker posted a portion of a sex tape featuring bollea. there is a lot at stake. bollea sued for $100 million. denton's entire digital media company is at risk and some fear so is is freedom of speech on the internet. >> i have a phrase, nothing is ever as good or as bad as it seems at that time. and i think often tests bring out the best in people and in companies. >> just days before the trial began, nick denton seemed confident. >> it's a good story. it's true. it's a matter of public concern. he's a very public figure so if we were going to have a story go to trial, i'm actually pretty
9:12 am
glad it's this one. >> since 2002, the british born, oxford educated denton has ball gawker media with stories just like this. there have been posts about a toronto mayor's drug use, hillary clinton's private e-mail server, the accusations against bill cosby, and, of course, the hulk hoe began sex tape. is that really news? or is that just entertainment and appealing to our most voyeuristic instincts? >> we find it interesting and that particular story millions of people found interesting. gossip is the version of news that the authorities or the celebrities or the officials don't want people to know. it's the unauthorized version. i think people have a right to know the unauthorized version as well as authorized version of news. >> there are also gawker's internet pranks. his crew created havoc by
9:13 am
getting republican candidate donald trump to repeat this quotation on twitter. "it is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep." the problem? fascist leader benito mussolini said it first. >> it's okay to know it's mussolini, it's a very good quote. >> tormenting public figures may seem an odd career choice for a journalist who once worked for the lofty financial times, but denton says as a gay man and a brit trying to make it in america, he has felt like an outsider. >> if you're an outsider the fewer social consequences to running the kind of stories that, you know, gawker ran in the early days or that journalists, good journalists run. some of those stories make you unpopular. if you care less about being accept by an establishment then you are more likely to run those
9:14 am
stories, more likely to allow journalists fuller freedom. >> denton employs 200 people, most working in the manhattan office, where a job as a reporter, expected to post 1 stories a day, can be grueling. a large central board continually ranks the popularity of stories by the number of readers clicking on. so what's a good story? how many collision do you need? >> any story that gets over a million views is a big story for us. >> for the record the hogan sex tape reportedly got eight million views, which made it a huge story. then last year, he announced that he was toning down his website to focus more on politics. he insists that it has nothing to do with the current lawsuit. but it may have had something to do with this. two years ago nick denton married derrence washington a performance actor who admits he
9:15 am
doesn't share denton's taste in news. you're not really interested in politics? >> no, not really. >> not interested in gossip? >> i like a little fun mess every now and again but not gossip gossip. nothing that gets sort of judgmental and finger pointing. i'm not interested in that. >> but that's what he does for a living. >> but i'm not married to what he does for a living. i'm married to him. >> the carriage has changed denton. >> i was a gawker. i was on the outside looking in. i was a gay guy in a straight world. i didn't imagine that i was going to have a family. i could just be getting older. i'm going to turn 50 this year. some of the mellowing may just be aging. >> last summer he did something had never done. he pulled a damaging story involving a man who wasn't famous but happened to have a brother who was. >> this was a story that i didn't believe that we should have done. i didn't think the point merited
9:16 am
the hurt caused to the man's family. >> does this make the fact that you drew the line with one case, pulled a post, make it more difficult to defend putting on a sex tape of mull can -- hulk hogan? >> i think the judgment is made all the time. and i think what people want to know from us is that we do apply standards. >> but in the end, the man who has made a career out of pushing limits may have gone too far. the jury came down decisively against him, giving the professional wrestler even more than he asked for, $115 million. nick denton may be on the ropes, but even before the trial, he was predicting he'd win on appeal. >> i wonder whether i'm going to look back and i'm going to look at this trial as being -- the hogan case as being the prompt that actually caused us to focus
9:17 am
on what we do, what we believe in and be serious about being a major force in digital media going forward. >> rocco:next, the death of the diet doctor. now the #1 selling brand for frequent heartburn. get complete protection with the new leader in frequent heartburn. that's nexium level protection.
9:18 am
wwstart saving for retirement.le then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges. >> rocco:now a fridge our "sunday morning" almanac, march

9:20 am
with annette bening in the title role. >> i say that i did not murder dr. her man tarnower. >> rocco:jean harris' story of the romantic betrayal failed to sway the jury which convicted her of second degree murder. she did win the support of some feminists and writers including diana trilling who compared her to such wronged heroines of madam bovary. unlike them, jean harris survived. a model prisoner she counseled and tutored her fellow inmates while her son jim stood on new york city sidewalks drumming up signatures for a clemency petition. at the end of 1992, new york dove more mario cuomo commuted her sentence. and in a public appearance in 1949, she reflected on her experience.

9:26 am
with a style all his own and an astounding command of color and line. >> i always thought of him as a wizard. that to me would sum it up. he would play the piano, a true renaissance man. had a lot of vigor. he talked about excellence and understanding what that meant and always shooting for the ceiling. >> i may not reach the ceiling but i think i still have tried to do things that i believe. >> decades after his death norman lewis is enjoying a critical reappraisal. seeing his work acquired by several major museums. >> the colors are spectacular. >> and now the pennsylvania academy of the fine arts in philadelphia is mounting the first major retrospective of his

art. ruth fine is the curator. >> i wanted to do it because i think he's profoundly important and interesting. i think the work is complex and beautiful. >> born in harlem in 1909 to caribbean immigrants, lewis was profoundly influenced by the energy of the renaissance unfolding just outside his front door. >> as he is looking at harlem, what is he seeing? >> he's seeing everything. people warming themselves by a burner. he's seeing people going shopping. he's looking at style. the figurative work that was exhibited most during his lifetime is this painting which was sometimes called girl with yellow hat. sometimes yellow hat. >> in the mid 1950 os, lewis moved on, embracing abstract
9:28 am
expressionism, a rare departure for an african american artist. >> i think he did not want to be hedge on holed. he wanted to live his life the way he wanted to paint it. i don't see that as rejection of anything. i see that as an embrace of -- >> everything. >> -- everybody. >> in the middle of this work, you see two burning crosses. >> you do. absolutely. >> had to be depicting a clan rally. >> it was a tough time in this country. >> lewis' work did not go unnoticed. >> he showed one of the best galleries in new york, the willard gallery. he got very good press in the important art journals. he was in 13 group exhibitions in his lifetime. >> but norman lewis' stature was bumping hard against the facts
9:29 am
that governed life for a black man. even in the art world. >> he was at the venice biennale that they showed de koonig and jackson pollack. he didn't get the same commercial success as his peers. >> what did norman lewis have to deal with? >> he had to deal with the left out of exhibition, is that were exhibitions of white artists. he was also left out of exhibitions of black artists that i would have thought he would have been in. but he was too abstract. he wasn't fitting the picture that people wanted to tell about what black art was. so he got it from both sides. >> is this finished? >> yeah. >> norman lewis' struggle for his rightful place among his contemporaries produced an extraordinary body of work and a
9:30 am
smoldering rage to go with it. >> the fact that he wasn't recognized the way he should have been during his lifetime, did you see frustration about that? >> norman was angry. there was a subtling a tore him. you know, disappointment. >> i don't know how he kept painting. i know he had some rage. i know he was upset. but he didn't let that affect his painting. he just kept painting. >> former nba player and coach daryl walker is a note collector of african american art. >> that's norman untitled 1964. >> he owns four works by lewis. were you surprised as you started to see what norman lewis' work, the prices that his work was commanding? >> no. because i knew the work was really good. the last ten years, it was a bull rush on collecting african
9:31 am
american painters and sculptures. we used to get pieces and get it for a good price. those days are long gone, buddy, i mean long gone. >> if the store roofer of norman lewis is on of racism denying an artist his proper due during his life, then it is also says ruth fine, a story still being written. the reconsideration of norman lewis, why now? >> i think the art world is realizing that the story of american art is much more diverse. young scholars and even old people like me are trying to tell the story of american art in a fuller, more complex, way more interesting way. >> we can't go undo the past. i wish we could. but we can't. all i'm saying is focus on norman now. focus on norman. he's one of the best out there.

don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding. and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have kidney problems, stomach ulcers, a bleeding condition, or take certain medicines. side effects with pradaxa can include indigestion, stomach pain, upset or burning. don't just go with the flow. go with pradaxa, the only blood thinner that lowers your risk of stroke better than warfarin and has a specific reversal treatment. talk to your doctor about pradaxa today. captioning made possible by johnson & johnson, where quality products for the american family have been a tradition for generations captioned by
