    Remember when John Aravoisis outed a male prostitute who was posing as a journalist in the White House Press Briefings asking Ari Fleischer an easy question whenever he was in trouble?

    The mainstream media reaction then was to hold a panel on blogger ethics.

    The fact that the administration was using a fake journalist to avoid hard questions should have been reported. The fact that a prostitute was being used suggests that a member of the administration was a client. None of that mattered to the establishment media because reporting on any of it would put their access at risk. So they held a panel on blogger ethics.

    Everything since gamergate is about ethics in videogame journalism…and now the for the weather, THAT’S NOT THE WEATHER, WHO DID YOU SLEEP WITH TO MAKE THE WEATHER LOOK LIKE THAT!

    I’d like to go on the record as saying “I DO NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT JOURNALISTIC ETHICS IN GAMING.”
    Because: I just want good games. And I get them. Plenty of them. I buy them after they have been on the market long enough for the general reaction to become clear; I talk to my other gamer friends (I’m the only guy on my WoW raid team) and I buy the games people say are good. Easy-peasy.

    Even if you wanted to assume near 100% corruption in the game journalism, the game of the year from IGN is probably going to be pretty good.

    Yeah. That must be it.
    Otherwise, the comment makes no sense.

    I think it was a passing time-traveler dropping off a comment meant for 2005.
