It's a bunch of people shitting themselves over finding out that gaming journalism is a bit corrupt. Fucking shocker. It's common knowledge that basically every kind of journalism involving politics or some kind business is corrupt to some degree, or at the very least biased, and we have tens of thousands of people complaining about controversy in probably one of the most trivial forms of journalism.

We've been trying to get AIM and FAIR involved. Plus it doesn't help when the opposition is literally pinning the GNAA, the bill waggoner crew, and something awful goons (these people ARE the ones spreading this vitriolic bullshit) on us. you see, all they're literally doing...is giving these people a blanket to hide under. They know that they can get away with it because they know the opposition is just going to instantly blame us for it.

Fact of the matter is that the MSM literally wants nothing to do with us and they never did they even admitted it a long time ago they essentially told us to go eat a dick. even back when jack thompson was doing his thing, they never gave a shit about us just the narrative.

the MSM has been willfully ignoring both sides of the story and focusing on the harassment these people get (which at most times it's either a troll trying to discredit Gamergate (case in point funnyjunk.com/The+shill+among+us/funny-pictures/5334191/ ) or Some weirdo with no affiliation to gamergate, hell in fact when we see this shit, we condemn it and report it to both twitter and the FBI) instead of the people that have perpetrated this bullshit, the corrupt journos, the ones invested in this, who have literally gone ON national TV and slandered us.

Gamergate is not about harassing anyone. It's about the ethical standards these people have violated, case in point: funnyjunk.com/Destructoid/funny-pictures/5331666/

I have seen all of that before and my post isn't contending that mainstream media isn't missing the point. It's that pro-GamerGate sentiment literally has no traction in mainstream media. I know of some of the instances where journalists willfully disregarded the pro-GamerGate take or gave more time and attention to anti-GamerGate.

However, the simple fact is that CNN, Huffington Post and other mainstream websites aren't going to represent the whole issue when solid pro-GG content is buried compared to the very visible and very vitriolic posts on Twitter which, whether you like it or not, is what people have come to associate GamerGate with.

The links you gave me are good. Is anyone from mainstream media going to see it? Probably not. It would be a good investigative story, but in this case maybe the video game community is still too peripheral to, in their minds, justify an investigative report that does more than summarize the surface vitriol happening on Twitter.

Pro-GGers need to find and create opportunities to bring their sentiments and evidence to light, especially in the absence of balanced mainstream coverage. And the pro-GGers on here need to do more than cherry pick stories and repeat "GamerGate is about ethics, not harassment" when the most visible representation of GamerGate (i.e. what's on Twitter) is about harassment.

And again. there's a million or so tweets about Gamergate. only about .006% of them are about zoe quinn. even less are about the others.
#8 - thepenname (10/26/2014) [-]
"Even less are about the others."

No, of the accounts picked for the story, Quinn has the third least tweets directed toward her.

Also, the point of this post isn't to condemn GamerGate irrefutably, as Newsweek's story definitely leaves room for scrutiny. The point is to come to terms with the obvious shortcomings of Gamergate, rather than dismissing everything as biased media misrepresentation -- which this, to a degree, is, but entirely? I wouldn't say so.

I never understand the line of logic of persons such as yourself. There's always the occasional person who will repeat the same comment repeatedly across statuses, but you decide to pick the most offensive comment possible for each content and see what results you get. You may claim not to be a troll, but your commenting up to this point is somewhat contrary.

So honestly and non agressively i'd like to ask:

Sup broski? how's things?
