The Ballad of Geordie Tait

Every now and then a social justice warrior comes along that is, well, special. Someone so utterly bonkers that they do our job for us. They do us all a favor by setting an example of what sort of human being you should never aspire to be.

How many falls does it take to level up from biased media to journalist?

The #gamergate protest started as a result of evidence hinting that many sources among games media were colluding together behind the scenes to promote their own agenda. The most obvious piece of the puzzle was a series of articles, all posted on the same day, giving a false description of gamers that was apparently intended to be derogatory, declaring their interests unimportant to either media or creators in the gaming industry, and insisting that they as media are entitled to continue their bad habits with impunity.…

That’s an adept description of the incident, and in short gives the reason why the discussion began and continues.…
