EXCLUSIVE: The Deranged Lafayette Shooter Hates Everyone, In His Own Words

Honestly, I kinda feel iffy about doing these kinds of posts, as I’ve discussed before with the Dylann Roof manifesto I reprinted. But, even though I’m not a journalist, I’m still part of the media ecosystem in some small, completely independent way. That being said,...

GAWKER SWERVE: Hogan Fired From WWE After Enquirer Drops “N-Word” Bonanza (UPDATE)

Hogan Vows to Fight Till Bitter End, Master Milo Opens up On Gawker, “The World’s Worst Humans”

FIRE RISES: Gawker Media on the Run Over “Gay-Shaming”Geithner Report (UPDATE: Article Pulled)

Well, GamerGate hates to be the one to say we told you so, but, we told you so. And actually, I don’t hate that shit at all. I am starting to have an unhealthy dislike for Gawker Media, though. Although last night they may have...

AIRPLAY CRAY: Koretzky’s Spaghetti, Plus BuzzFeed Jumps In With Biased Hitpiece

Today has been another wild day on the SPJ Airplay front. I wish I could say I was surprised, but I’m not. Originally, I had held my fire on all this. I didn’t go too hard at the organizer, Michael Koretzky. I can now see...

BREAKING: CHAIRMAN PAO OUT AS REDDIT CEO (NUMEROUS UPDATES)

More to come, but here’s the latest: just as I predicted in multiple columns, Ellen Pao has been relieved of duty. That’s right, she’s fucking out of a job and is going to be replaced by Reddit’s founder. More from Recode: 

Facebook Icon Change Hailed as Feminist Triumph By Gawker’s Gizmodo

Sometimes, you read an article that perfectly illustrates just how absurd modern feminism really is. Take this morning’s Gizmodo fuckery, for example. In it, they recount how some SJW ideologue at Facebook saw the old friends icon as a slight towards women due to how...

Gawker In a “Bad Place” According to Own Financial Expert, Plus a Hogan Trial Update

BLAME GAMES: CNN’s Banfield Compares Charleston Massacre to Mortal Kombat

Daily Beast Puts Out Fantasy Article About GamerGate

One of the most consistent lines of bullshit you see from the other side, is the myth that GamerGate is against female leads in video gaming. This comes as a huge shock to most of us, since we’ve been enjoying strong female characterizations in gaming...

John Oliver Tackles “Online Harassment” By Citing Wu & Sarkeesian

I mentioned this news at the end of the last column, but I wanted to wait until after I had seen the actual segment from John Oliver’s show, Last Week Tonight. I’d already heard that Brianna Wu and Anita Sarkeesian had both been cited, due...

Gawker Publishes Dylann Roof’s Manifesto

I have a long-standing grudge against media outlets who publish the manifesto of mass murderers. We see it happen time and time again. We hear criticism, but no one ever stops doing it. That’s one of the downsides of a free press. There is no...

Daily Mirror Joins Cry Session Over the New Doom (Now With Satanic Panic!)

Well, good morning ladies and gentleman? Oh, it’s almost 4PM you say (I did start writing at 2:30, at least)? That’s only one of the many benefits of running your own website! The others are being underpaid and sunlight deprived. But, enough of my attempted...
