Snippet -

According to an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit that included the staff of PC Gamer, they revealed their true intentions on where they stood on corruption, illegal activity happening within the gaming industry and #GamerGate back when it first popped up: they actively chose to ignore it.

Responding to a question about some of the legitimate concerns and issues raised through the GamerGate hashtag regarding ethics in journalism, and why PC Gamer never addressed those issues, PC Gamer’s deputy editor, Phil Savage, unabashedly admits…

“As far as I remember, the only time we addressed Gamergate’s concerns directly was in specific reference to the ethics stuff they once touted as their purpose. We didn’t publish an op ed about the dangers of authoritative statements of sexism. Nor, however, did we publish an op ed extolling the virtues of authoritative statements of sexism. We tried to hold course and do our thing, because, honestly, we decided that, whatever that group’s points, they weren’t worth the oxygen based on their treatment of ourselves, our peers, an whatever developer had crossed them that week.”

I think these 'press' guys were unable to see the forest for the trees on #GamerGate. They saw some trolls trolling and 'listened and believed' the lies the SJW Ladies of Indie Gaming were spewing. That combined into '#GamerGate is toxic'. Much like today, the media in general has believed the lies about Trump and his supporters and think that most of working class America is sexist and racist and homophobic and about to rise up and kill non whites in the street. Never mind that the only people doing anything bad in the streets are non-Trump supporters. Hey, what's reality when you have a fantasy world to live in where you are a king of virtue!!!
