Greetings /GG/ (not guns and girls).

I'm here because i'm writing a paper for my journalistic ethics class and i want to write about GamerGate. I've been a follower of the movement from the start and find it to be a fantastic example of journalistic ethics gone shit.

I come here asking for any sources explaining the history of the movement, from Quinn's Five Guys, Gawker, Wu and up until now.

If anybody here can help me with this info it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi newfag!

It's not a movement. It's got no leader, no list of demands and/or values, no structure, no formal organized body, it's simply a chaotic response through internet activism to media's discovered unethical conducts + use of politics as an evasive maneuver by the unethical media to redirect the polemics from them to a strawman / red herring, so that they could avoid addressing the issues that surfaced, while also profiting from the clickbait that they generated with the defensive lies.

It started with focus on an indie dev though, and her relationships with people on media, who wrote articles on her and one of her games, under a favorable manner (there were no reviews by these journos though, as is often mistakenly said).


http://www.gamergatewiki.com/index.php/Timeline/Full (give your attention to this, consider the pre-gamergate events listed there as signs of consumers getting fed up with how media treats them, and how they showed signs of corruption before)

Here are some good histories:



You can look for events in the happenings file, but you might be looking for a while.


If you need help verifying a fact or claim, ask and someone will probably produce a pile of evidence.

I see more and more collegefags writing about gg as a cheap way to get A's.

Almost makes me wish i was still in college.

Luckily i'm from South America and universities here haven't been flooded with political correctness and SJWs.

I highly doubt you'd really enjoy being in an American college now.

29bd46 No.309586


Burger colleges offer a mix of stuff to pass the time yo,if you want to get into political activism or ideology and forget why you are actually in college no one is going to stop you,if you want to go there and read a useless degree such as philosopy or gender studies and wonder why no one will hire you after you finish go ahead,if you want to sit in your room and play vidya all day long no one is going to stop you.

Get bored and dropout to become a neet who uses imageboards all day no one will stop you.

That's really the only good thing about burger colleges the limitless freedom to make something of yourself or destroy yourself based on your own decisions

It's easy if you prepare enough for it. Work on your timing for questions, especially math, and on your vocab. For the essay, it must be an argument. I suggest getting a prep book or something.

Gamergate is 100% about harassing le womyns out of gaming.

But seriously, its a big topic.

Your doing a paper on ethics not twitter trolls. So rather than focusing on the professional victims, focus on the newsmedia themselves.

GG is a perfect example of the newsmedia becoming part of the story they are reporting on. And then using their influence to control the narrative to distract from their own faults.

When you think about it, making an already disparaged group (gamers) in to their personal scapegoats was very clever. Who would suspect the gaming press would hold their own customer base in contempt like that?

You could use examples such as the secret forums game journalists use to collude with each other. And the resulting 20 articles that came out on the same day speaking out against their own customer base. Or the mass censorship that happened on the half chan and leddit in order to subdue evidence of collusion.

Pateron is a good one to look at because loads of the journos and devs are all sending each other money on there. Which is very relevant for an ethics paper.

You could touch on the grey area between journalists and bloggers and how that is often used to avoid ethical standards.

Its good to explain that when you have collusion the market is no longer a meritocracy. And every time a poor game gets promoted in the news media because of a personal relationship, it takes the place of a better game that should have got there because of its content and gameplay. So we all lose out.

To give it a happy ending, you can list all the things that have had to change since GG. Most sites have updated their ethics policies and gone back and updated older articles to disclose relationships.

Some people believe in us…others don't

There's little we can do about that.

just keep that in mind while writing
