Wonderfully articulated post it’s just unfortunate that it takes posts like these to get people to ‘see the other side’.

"I work for Reuters. I’m a journalist in the media business.

Back in 2008, I sat in a conference and reviewed some proposals to integrate news sources focused on electronic gaming into our RSS service as niche content providers.

We considered IGN, Gamespot, and a few other syndicated online info feeds.

Now, in order to white label a source as affiliated with Reuters, you need to run through a checklist of ~100 items that are necessary for journalistic integrity. The source and its organization has to score at least a 60 out of 100 for it to be considered fair and unbiased.

These tests are carried out by senior journalists, editors, and investigators.

NONE of the gaming publications scored higher than a 15. For reference, the National Enquirer scored a 38 and the MSNBC blogosphere scored 44.

Some failures included:
- Economic ties with publishers
- Acceptance of favors
- 0% of staff held journalism degree
- Very small percentage worked in other major publications
- No real editing process
- No accountability

tl;dr: Gaming “journalism” is a joke and the laughingstock of reporting media. Continue to read these publications if you want, but assume that everything you read is biased or an outright lie.”

did anita sarkeesian actually fake herself being stalked and harrased

Very badly and obvious too. We totally should get the fbi to investigate these serious threats and let them expose her.

Why not? They seemed like pretty serious threats. We get those shitty people out of the discussion, and Anita can feel a little safer.

Buuuut considering she posted “I am safe with friends” I doubt she’s contacted the authorities at all
