Again!? Newsweek Reporter Says Bullying is Good

I guess we don’t have to do much anymore, outside of continuing to send the emails (never stop doing that). Big Media and their corrupt gaming journo kin, have decided to self-immolate. How else can you explain yet another reporter, this time for Newsweek, coming...

Gawker Set to Promote Bully Sam Biddle

So, not only does Gawker media employ bullies like Sam Biddle, they also reward them! I guess editor Max Read wasn’t joking when he said that Biddle was going to get a raise from his advocacy of violence. Biddle really is going to receive a...

Hulu Apparently Hurries Out the Gawker Media Door

It’s hard to actually fathom how quickly sponsors are leaving Gawker. Like I just said 15 minutes ago, this is the most amazing thing if ever seen in these types of protests. The speed with which companies are abandoning ship is astounding…not that I’m complaining.

Colgate Calls it Quits With Gawker

I’ve just received word that Nissan has decided to cut ties with Gawker, and they will no longer advertise there. They did say that they only do so now through third parties, but they will direct those third parties to no longer show Nissan ads...

“Let Syrians Suffer” Says Anti-GamerGate Boston Globe Journo

Earlier this AM, we witnessed yet another stunning attack against a prominent pro-GamerGate supporter. She goes by the name of Partisangirl (real name Maram Susli). Not only is she a supporter of GamerGate, she is a also a controversial Syrian rights activist. Of course, nowadays, anyone...

Mercedes Pulls Ads From Gawker

After yesterday’s story about Gawker’s Sam Biddle encouraging the bullying of nerds, Mercedes has decided to pulled all ads from Gawker Media. This may have something to do with the fact that Project Anti Bully has now picked up the story as well. Whatever the...

Gawker Refuses To Denounce Their Advocacy of Bullying

Earlier today, I noticed that Internet Aristocrat had retweeted something from Gawker’s Sam Biddle. I’ve only ever seen the bum’s work a few times, and honestly, I don’t care about his opinions on any subject. But this needed to be called out, and I’m glad...

Deceitful New York Times Disregards Facts About GamerGate

Earlier this evening, my respect for the New York Times died. I know some already hated it, but I, personally, still had some respect for the supposed “Newspaper of Record.” After reading their one-sided shit piece a few moments ago, I can no longer support...
