I would've wrote this in the article comment, but that was locked off, so I'm posting it here.
To Patrick Kleptek,
Your recent article about Anita Sarkeesian doesn't irk me. It's a fact, and you are reporting facts.
What irks me is that you are being selective with information. Obviously, this woman is, unfortunately, a large part of #gamergate scandal. By releasing information and writing articles in such selective fashion that is only beneficial to one side of the argument, I don't think you can escape being criticized for being biased. Granted what has happened here is unfortunate, and such misconduct shouldn't be condoned, but if you are going to cover the story, please do cover the ENTIRE story, not only parts of it.
I do not see any articles related to #gamergate, despite there being so much story to it.
Also the tone of your words in those articles don't really help either, although I do agree such events are quickly becoming tiresome.
I thought GiantBomb's policy is to stay out of #gamergate story until things settle down, so it can be discussed in civilized manner. This kind of selective journalism is nothing more than biased propaganda.
Either cover the entire story, or don't cover it at all. Cherry picking stories like this makes me question GiantBomb and YOUR integrity as journalists.
I became a supporter of Giantbomb because I sympathized with Jeff back in 2007. I really wish I do not have to question the integrity of this site, but such selective journalism is making that difficult to hold my trust in your site. Please, either start discussing about #gamergate in order to dissuade all the suspicions your readers have on gaming journalism (which you are part of), or like you said in your videos, stay out of it until it is the right time to discuss. I do prefer the former option, as GiantBomb is kind of central to the whole plot when it comes to journalistic integrity as it was created out of direct result of the first controversy of the subject back in 2007. The words from your site holds much stronger weight compared to others out there in my opinion. Remaining silent like this cannot be good for anyone. Gamers, Game Journalists, Game Developers, or Game Publishers.
I don't know. Am I being unreasonable? Am I just being one of those "misogynistic gamer" here? Or am I just a reader that is sick and tired of this controlled media censorship? Why don't you tell me?
