VICE Learns What GamerGate Always Knew: Gawker Sucks

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 silent when it came time to lend GamerGate a helping hand. That would have meant admitting we were right about something. We did have a mountain of recent reporting, but no one would jump in, and help us finish the job in the here, and now. Instead, outlets like VICE piled on us, and refused to listen. Now that Gawker stabbed them in the back with a bogus report, they want to go on the attack. Better late than never, I guess.

In an article titled “VICE to Gawker: Fuck You and Fuck Your Garbage Click-Bait ‘Journalism” the media outlet finally went at the corrupt Cayman Islands Crook, Nick Denton:

“Gawker, a gossip site that openly traffics in rumor, innuendo, and in many cases straight-up bullshit, and whose founder, Nick Denton, has been slapped with a class-action lawsuit by former interns for violating federal wage laws, recently published an inaccurate and irresponsible story about VICE’s workplace. The story is abysmal “journalism” even by Gawker’s standards, relying on a handful of disgruntled (and of course off-the-record) alleged ex-employees, some of whom reference VBS.tv, a website that hasn’t existed for more than four years. Gawker has been actively trolling for these sources since at least February of this year, when they published a post on their website hoping to draw people into collaborating with them.”

Long story short, Gawker is still peddling shit reporting, and VICE is fed up with it. Although, let’s face it, VICE is also shit. These are the same people who spent weeks misrepresenting GamerGate right along with the Cayman Crook. Personally, I hope they tear each other to shreds. I will kick back with the proverbial popcorn and watch the shit fly. Although I guess if I’m put on record, I want to see Denton burn first. That piece of trash has no business at the head of a major media outfit.

    It might not be a bad idea to link people on VICE articles the means we have been using to take down Gawker…

  • bazzar

    we’ve simply reached peak clickbait, now the clickbait sites will actually have to compete with each other instead of simply being a human centipede joined at both ends.

    • Elilla Shadowheart

      First thought that came to my mind was shit-in-shit-out. Nasty.

    • Paul

      So the pool is filled with sharks, what happens now? Add a little blood and watch them tear each other to pieces.

    VICE the Online publication is pretty shit and clickbait, VICE News is rather solid still and I wouldn’t like them going anywhere: https://www.youtube.com/user/vicenews/
    It’s sad that they have to damage their own reputation as VICE on HBO and VICE News travelling and reporting from all around the world by having a shitty Clickbait publication with the same name. Really sad.

      Hey RALPH! Do you delete double-comments like this I’m wondering and should I use the “flag as inappropriate” function when I see them?

  • You’d think with the peak stupid we’ve seen from sites like Gawker’s people would be more skeptical.

    I think the opposite has occurred within the Great Unwashed. They are MORE susceptible to lies and their B.S. detectors are flat out broken, if not uncalibrated. In the 21st century, I’d have thought we’d move on from that sort of claptrap, but since the dawn of “Yellow Journalism”, things have only descended downward. There are exceptions to the rule, to be sure. But for the most part, it’s just more and more of the same tripe.

    It’s about time people started getting fed up.

    I’m enjoying the spectacle of civil war between the SJW calling each other pot calling kettle black. It’s like they live to make more enemies.

  • Michieie

    VICE is just as corrupt as Gawker and they own some of the sites that slandered us, too.

  • Jon

    Took ya’ long enough, Vice.

    Join us in our reindeer games of giving Gawker a world of hurt.

  • GamerGate Developer

    haha this is awesome 😀

  • ImperialFists

    and thus the journos are turning on each other

    remember, divide and conquer

  • GuitarAnthony

    When it comes to money, clickbait websites, much like SJW’s, will push a fellow CBW or SJW into the fucking ocean off a tall bridge if it meant they’d get a dollar.

  • Mark Samenfink

    Maybe, as VICE reaches around for a bludgeon to smack Gawker with, they’ll see the #Gamergate arrow stlll imbedded in Gawker’s rectum and be like… wait, they cost Gawker 7 Figures!? Go back! Go Back! Maybe they had something!

  • masterninja

    Let them burn let them all burn!

  • Anon

    Um, that vice page is from mid 2014…

  • Gregg Braddoch

    lol. No honor, no code, just attack whom you feel deserves it today. Nice.

    This is why gamergate will ultimately succeed, because there are principles behind it, and the SJWs have no principles or any other guidelines except “Go get em’ kid!”

  • MetalTamponForYourAss

    Anyone who works for gawker better stay there because no reputable news outlet would ever hire any of those fucking retards
