Let’s face it gamers: Why bother? The music industry is dripping wet with payola grease, so your beloved #1 hits are as spurious as… well, you know, as the videogames review press. They (you know who they are) want you to accept corruption as something completely normal or else; else being labeled as a bigoted misogynist chauvinist pig. So, don’t even try, because you’re risking to be labeled as immature as… well, as adolescent videogamers.
Nobody (in the media) wants the truth. Witness cracked.com, always willing to blatantly assert that governments cannot default (!) and downplay Climategate, just in the name of comedy? “Hey, it’s just a comedy website, what is that supposed to do with the truth?” is their unofficial motto.
#GamerGate should be no exception, truth doesn’t matter when there are colleagues to protect and an agenda to further, even if it means they have to demean their readership.
