MEDIA STUNT: Deranged Brianna Wu Backing Out of PAX East is Laughable

I just woke up a couple hours ago, so I’m done with my rounds with the GamerGate community, and I met my Twitter quota. I wanted to sound off on something before I took a trip to the store in this fucking snow. I know...

L & O: SVU “Gamer Madness” Edition More Bizarre Than Anyone Could Have Imagined

When I sat down to watch Law & Order: SVU earlier tonight, I knew I was in for a bizarre spectacle. This show has been a bad parody of itself for a number of years now, and only hung around this long because the rest...

Biased Reporter Rejects Christian Allen & Decent GG in Favor of Doxers

As I said in the post last night, mainstream media is usually more skillful in masking their bias than Gawker was with their recent shitpiece by Bully Boy Biddle. But Gawker isn’t the only ones who are acting in a ham-handed fashion. Yesterday, gamedev Christian...

THE COMMANDER: Master Troll Jace Fools Gawker, Jezebel, GamerGhazi, & Wu Simultaneously

After a long night putting together that Mike Sacco piece, I’m back at my desk. Actually, I’ve been here since 2pm EST, it’s just that it sometimes takes me several hours before I’m ready to start writing. I like to feel the pulse of the...

Law & Order: SVU Set To Trash Gaming Hobby on February 11th (UPDATE)

Well, we’ve had everyone media outlet you could imagine shitting on GamerGate, so I guess it’s only appropriate that the entertainment arm of the media get the shekels out of the deal. NBC’s Law & Order: SVU will be broadcasting another “ripped from the headlines”...

Liberal Pundit Chait Drops Bomb on Modern Feminism and PC Culture

I just got through reading one of the best columns I’ve ever had the privilege of laying my eyes on. No, I’m not overselling it. This shit was that fucking good. It was written from the liberal viewpoint. I don’t talk about my political views...

Dishonest Bully Sam Biddle Uses Gawker Platform To Lie About GamerGate

It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve heard from our old friend Sam Biddle. Just like Arthur Chu, he can’t seem to quit GamerGate. I guess it’s not as bad as ole Artie, who wrote a column saying he was done with us, went on...

Even Gawker Can’t Ignore Shanley’s Implosion Courtesy of Milo (UPDATE)

With so much to write about today, I just had to go ahead and pick something. Since I was already talking about Shanley’s meltdown on Twitter, I figured why not start there. It really is pretty fun to see an abusive troll like her have...

ADDICTED TO THE WIN: PC Gamer Follows GamerGate’s Lead

I’ve been tied up all day with a personal situation (I hate to “pull a Wu,” but my dog is ill), but I’ve still been following all the happenings. A big one happened today, so I had to do a post on it. If you’ll...

Sam Biddle & Gawker Give ISIS a Propaganda Victory

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from Sam Biddle. He got moved up to the main Gawker site (or banished from Valleywag, depending on your take), and has been writing the same sort of trash that he wrote before. The only difference is, now he...

ENABLERS: The Mary Sue Still Silent On Sarah Nyberg (Srhbutts)

The Mary Sue is a radical feminist rag that runs hit pieces and misinformation from that perspective. It’s perfectly above board to do that. I run some hits here. Hardball pleases me. Still, I don’t have any sexual deviants or alleged pedophiles like Sarah Nyberg...

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,...
