Jimmy Wales to Start “Foundation” With UAE Blood Money

Gawker may be a shithole, but they did bring some interesting things to light about Jimmy Wales, which we discussed in the last column. The Wikipedia post on GamerGate hasn’t improved in the slightest, so I think it’s safe to say that ole Jimmy doesn’t...

VICE Learns What GamerGate Always Knew: Gawker Sucks

Well, you can’t say we didn’t try to warn them. For months we’ve told anyone who would listen about how shit Gawker was. We couldn’t find one single media ally. In fact, a media that had been largely critical of Gawker for years, suddenly got...

Burn, Baby, Burn: The Gawker Media Story

In case you didn’t know, Gawker Media is pretty much in flames right now. Last week, Nick Denton ceded control of the company over to a board, which he will still head. So, that in and of itself isn’t too major, although it does show...

moot, AKA The CuckMaster

I don’t have the long experience with 4chan, and its owner moot (Christopher Poole), that some of you have. I don’t know a lot about the culture there, outside of general stuff. I wasn’t totally ignorant of it before GamerGate, but it was a place I...

UVA Rape Hoax Blowup Makes Jezebel Look Like Fools

One of my biggest problem with rad fem rags like Jezebel, is that they always insist on listening and believing every single rape accuser that comes down the pike. This goes against my inner defense attorney spirit. I naturally give people the presumption of innocence,...

Hulk Hogan Laughs as Insurance Company Turns on Gawker

As most of you know, I’m a huge wrestling fan. I’ve been out of the loop at bit the last few months, but it’s still something I love. One of my favorite wrestlers of all time is Hulk Hogan. His actual wrestling ability is low,...

New York Times Continues To Prove Its Best Days Are Long Gone

Yesterday, Twitter rolled out some changes that are coming to the service. You will no longer be able to see someone’s timeline if one, or both you, have each other blocked. Third parties will be able to report “abuse” they witness. They’re also talking about...

Gawker Media, and Demented Jezebel, Still Lying About GamerGate

As I sat down to enjoy my leftovers today, I was alerted to a story about a female Australian video games journalist. It pretty simple. Basically, little shitstains send her rape threats and stuff like that, and instead of calling the police, she calls the...

WAM’s Ties to Rad Fem Hate Hub Jezebel Tells the Tale

The more I learn about Women, Action, & the Media (WAM), the less I like it. GamerGate was having free and open debate on Twitter for months. All of a sudden, the speech police from WAM showed up, and people like RogueStar start getting banned...

SHOCK CLAIM: Gawker & Biddle Steal Photog’s Work, Ignore Early Pleas to Credit

Gawker is one of the most disgusting media outlets to ever exist, when you sit and think about it. I’m not saying I don’t get down in the dirt myself, because of course I do. But, I’ve yet to host someone’s sex tape against their...

GamerGate Global: UK’s Giffgaff Withdraws From Gawker

I had to go to sleep earlier, after  fun night spent talking shit on Twitter. Actually, now that I think about it, that’s how I spent the day as well.  I used to hate Twitter, but now I have so many friends (and enemies) on...

Gawker is Kill: BMW Stays Out

I’m just going to write up a little info tidbit I just received. I announced on Twitter that I’ve received an email from BMW that confirms that they are no longer doing business with Gawker Media. This comes on the heels of the email from...

Breaking news this Friday evening, as Dyson has pulled their ad dollars out of Gawker Media. This makes two more sponsors gone this week, and comes fresh on the heels of the Scrivener decision. This movement, cause consumer revolt…whatever you want to call it, it...

Disgraced Gawker Loses Another Sponsor

GamerGate has had a rough couple days. A lot of infighting has occurred on Twitter. But, as I pointed out earlier, this is a lot bigger than Twitter…or some Skype chats. Today has seen that play out once again. Gawker has lost yet another sponsor....

Gawker’s Nick Denton Confirms: GamerGate Post Was Legit

All day today, I’ve been having to deal with people who doubted the authenticity of this morning’s Gawker story. Specifically, people have doubted wheter or not Nick Denton actually made that post. Many have outright told me they believe it to be a fake. Well,...

Gawker Owner Nick Denton Admits to GamerGate Sabotage

I went to bed early last night. Shame on me. As I was sleeping, KingofPol dropped one of the biggest bombshells yet. According to a screenshot allegedly from Gawker owner Nick Denton’s Facebook page, he has infiltrated GamerGate. The tone policing people like me and...
