Snippet -

A bunch of journalists failed to check the facts and have been erroneously defending a hoaxer who claimed that he had received lots of harassment and more than a thousand personal attacks over the loot box controversy looming over the release of Star Wars: Battlefront II. It started with the following tweet on November 13th, 2017 from Twitter user BiggSean66.

Sites like WCCF Tech, Game Rant, For The Win, Screen Rant, and Fortune (among many other) all erroneously reported that the death threats were real.

Fortune’s article looked especially egregious, insofar that they not only highlighted BiggSean66’s alleged death threats, but also attempted to drag #GamerGate into it as well, all while giant ads for Star Wars: Battlefront II play on the site.

And the Deep State whispered to Trump “You can’t withstand the storm”, to which Trump replied
“I am the storm”
