he's expected to take the stand. how can he change the opinion of himself? >> he's the owner of gawker, they have to somehow change the image that in the way they came across in those deposition tapes. they have to accept some responsibility, i think. they have to try to be at least somewhat sympathetic. the goal is, just try to make these jurors hear their argument. and the only way they're going to hear that argument, i think, is if they don't hate gawker. >> you brought up something very interesting on your website, who's paying the legal bills for hulk hogan. >> number one, could hogan be paying the bills himself? i don't think so. or a contingency fee? hogan should have settled this case. gawker was willing to pay a lot better.
