Engadget Defends CNN, Misinforms Readers About #GamerGate
Engadget CNN GamerGate
(Last Updated On: July 8, 2017)

Engadget’s Jessica Conditt penned a piece entitled “Here’s why CNN isn’t ‘doxing’ anyone”. It was published on July 7th, 2017. The piece attempts to defend CNN’s actions that they took against a Reddit user they thought created a meme that Donald Trump shared on his Twitter account. CNN tracked down the user and posed the threat of doxing him to coerce an apology out of him, and made mention that they could always change their mind if the Reddit user ever got out of line again. They later had to post an updated story to affirm that President Donald Trump’s press team denied that Trump retrieved the meme from Reddit, which means that the attempted blackmail was levied against the wrong person.

However, more relevant to the topic at hand is the fact that Conditt misrepresents a lot of information in the piece to continue the false narrative about #GamerGate being a harassment campaign, something that was never proven to be true back in 2014 and has still never been proven to be true in 2017.

Conditt writes…

“Doxing was one of the main weapons deployed by proponents of Gamergate, a loosely organized movement that led to the widespread harassment of women in the video game community around 2014.“

Doxing was used by various trolls against people who identified as pro and anti-#GamerGate, including Liz Finnegan, a former writer for The Escapist Magazine who supported the fight for better ethics in journalism as a pro-#GamerGate figure early on.

Additionally, it was discovered that non-affiliated groups like /baphomet/ were doxing people and attempting to place the blame on #GamerGate, since the /baphomet/ crew hated #GamerGate, which was only reported on by alternative sites like Ralph Retort.

What’s more is that there was never any “widespread harassment”, nor any archives, records or evidence indicating that #GamerGate ever commenced or partook in widespread harassment. In fact there was a #GamerGate harassment patrol designed to ensure that trolls would not use the hashtag for harassment, this way the message about ethics in journalism could be seen loud and clear on the hashtag. The group ended up petering out, but not before helping catch and expose one of Anita Sarkeesian’s more notorious harassers, as reported by We Hunted The Mammoth.

Additionally, the WAM! peer reviewed report did not indicate that people who were labeled as harassers partook in any kind of organized harassment. More than 172 news articles claimed that the people on the #GamerGate blocklist were harassers, and according to WAM!’s findings, only 0.65% of the people on a list of nearly 10,000 were ever reported for harassment, as detailed by Techraptor.

Conditt has no links and nothing to back up the claims of harassment. She goes on to write…

“Gamergate targeted game developers Zoe Quinn and Brianna Wu and Feminist Frequency founder Anita Sarkeesian, among others.”

Except, there’s no evidence they were “targeted” by #GamerGate for anything other than criticism. Even Anita Sarkeesian openly admitted that criticism is not harassment. A Newsweek report even indicated that over 90% of the tweets regarding Quinn, Wu and Sarkeesian involving #GamerGate were neutral, with a small percentage of tweets being positive or negative.

Newsweek Report

Conditt continues, writing…

“The FBI got involved, and earlier this year the Bureau released a redacted 173-page document outlining its Gamergate investigation, including swaths of abusive tweets, emails and messages. One suspect apparently admitted to calling and threatening a victim 40 to 50 times a day, though it appears this person didn’t face any punishment.”

Conditt links to another Engadget article regarding the FBI report, cherrypicking certain examples to paint an unclear picture about their investigation. In reality, the calls from the individuals made 40 through 50 times a day were from two teens from Indiana. The boys began calling Brianna Wu because they regularly participated in a chatroom with Wu, and after seeing #GamerGate in Gnews from sites like Engadget, Kotaku and Polygon claiming that it was a harassment campaign, they joined in. Theis was detailed in the full FBI report that you can read on the official FBI website.

Conditt leaves out the very poignant point that the only reason the boys began making the prank calls was because of what was misreported by the media.

Conditt’s final example in relation to #GamerGate involved actress Felicia Day, recounting how the actress was doxed after penning a blog about #GamerGate, writing…

“Felicia Day, actress and all-around nerd goddess, penned a blog post in October 2014 about her personal reaction to Gamergate and to explain why she hadn’t spoken up about the controversy before then. Essentially, she wrote, she was scared of being doxed […]

 

“Day was doxed minutes after publishing that blog post.”

It is true that Felicia Day’s talent agency’s address was posted in the comment section about 9 to 12 minutes after making the blog post. The address was posted by an anonymous user who was posing as the Internet Aristocrat. The dox was done in an attempt to make it as if #GamerGate doxed Felicia Day; the user was quickly reported and the post was deleted shortly thereafter.

An actual recounting of the event and the details surrounding it were only properly covered by a user blog on Gawker’s Kinja network.

The blog surmised that it was likely the work of third-party trolls. As evident with /baphomet/’s involvement, there were definitely various third-party trolls at work, and a couple of times #GamerGate caught them red handed, including an event that involved some trolls attempting to bribe young kids to send death threats through the GamerGate hashtag in exchange for free MewTwo codes for a Pokemon 3DS game.

The FBI report also indicated that goons from the SomethingAwful.com forums were also involved, but Conditt fails to mention any of this in her article, solely reiterating old unproven claims to continue a narrative to suit the media’s fake news agenda.

  • Just to chime in on the misinformation on GG, I think the biggest misinformation is that GG keeps being referred to as “right-wing”. I used to be in GG, since the very start of GG; I was one of the originals… and actually left/dropped-out of GG, because I myself *am* right-wing conservative/republican. I’m also a proud Trump-supporter.
    (As a disclaimer, I wasn’t always right-wing… way back when, I used to be liberal/democrat; that is until I didn’t like what the party was turning into, so about 6-7 years ago I flipped to non-partisan, and just registered as a proud and official Republican last year.)

    Mid last year (2016), leading up to the election, I started sharing articles on Trump and how the libtard/mainstream-media were attempting to misrepresent and portray him as a “garbage human-being” (reference to VidCon), much like they were doing to GG, attempting to highlight how anti-GG gaming-journalism was much akin to mainstream-media journalism. I also tried pointing out that the same turmoil seen in GG/anti-GG, was shifting into the political-spectrum (which says a metric F-ton coming from somebody that spent nearly 4 decades dodging politics like the plague), and SJWism would take off and sky-rocket in main-stream politics. (Turns out, based on the modern-day, I was 110% accurate.)

    What I was met with, were people telling me I was posting too much about politics, and informed, “nobody in GG cares about politics, please stop posting stuff about Trump”. So, not only did I do that, I took a good month or two break from GG groups, and did other stuff… and then it was around the time No Man’s Sky released, I decided to check out the GG groups again to see what people thought of NMS.

    Upon returning to the groups, I saw the same people that were claiming that “nobody in GG cares about politics”, and telling me that I shouldn’t be posting politics there… sharing and putting up posts propping up Hitlary Clintard and Colonel “Watch-Me-Burn-My-Supporters” Sanders. Upon just asking, “what’s this, I thought we weren’t supposed to bring politics here?”, the replies I’d receive are, “OMG, lol, look at the salt!”, and several other childish “nananana booboo” sort of replies. Like, really? And we, as GG, wondered why not many wanted to take us that seriously.

    It was at that point I realized that GG as a group wasn’t much better than the political SJW groups seen regularly now… especially with the “do as we say, not as we do” arguments and mentality. Silencing one side of the aisle to have a bigger soapbox to preach from on the other side of the same aisle.

    Not to mention the blatant hypocrisy I’d seen for quite awhile in GG groups… not to defend SJWs or anti-GG, as I definitely wouldn’t ever want to do that… but so many shouted that SJWs and anti-GG were just an echo-chamber. Hate to be the one to burst that bubble, but most GG-groups are echo-chambers as well. I’d so many times see the same articles from months, if not several years prior, being reposted to GG groups and people reacting to them as though they were news from the past week. You’d go about 6 months in a GG-group, and start having serious deja-vu, when the same article has been posted for the 6th time, and found yourself reading comments from people acting as though it’d just happened that very day.

    Needless to say, between these incidents, as well as seeing the movie “Hillary’s America”… my eyes were finally opened… and it became rather apparent… that the right-wing never seemed to have an invitation to this bizarre love-hate quarrel/relationship/make-up-break-up-fest.

    The real truth of the matter is… most all of it, is liberal/leftist problems… almost like hillbillies (think Clampetts vs. McCoys) duking it out in a run-down trailer-park. The SJWs and anti-GG are one branching extremism-prong of the left-wing… while GG is (or rather, has become and morphed into) more the opposite branching extremism-prong of the left-wing claiming that the other prong shouldn’t speak for all of them, and that the other prong doesn’t fairly represent who they are.

    Once you realize this, you feel like that odd third-wheel, when you find yourself defending a woman from a creepy man… just to find out the creepy man is actually the woman’s 5th-time ex, and further to find out that in another week or two, they’d be happy and back in love again. Or something to that extent. xD

    Ultimately and honestly though… GG started as a decent concept, that was open to all that wanted to oppose the anti-GG SJW collective… but just like most things ever touched by the left… the left took it over and more or less drove anybody that wasn’t left, and/or wouldn’t prop up their ideals and ideology, out… which if anything, is a gigantic contradiction to what GamerGate is even supposed to represent… and even further the whole “NotYourShield” ideals. -_-

    (Another even more sad irony… many within GG, had no problem with chiming, “yep, I’m a proud Deplorable”, using it to represent those standing against establishment SJWism… with not a whole lot of idea that “deplorable” was actually what Hitlary Clintard labeled Trump-supporters.)

    Well technically the information engdadget presents about GamerGate is pretty factual.

    Not to mention that from the looks of the FBI report, they didn’t took the GamerGate threats seriously becasue of the fact it was happening online.

    • Well technically the information engdadget presents about GamerGate is pretty factual.

      Which parts? Because GamerGate was never a harassment campaign, not a shred of evidence supports that claim, and she stated it as if it were fact. That’s not how “factual” statements work.

      Not to mention that from the looks of the FBI report, they didn’t took the GamerGate threats seriously becasue of the fact it was happening online.

      Because there were no GamerGate threats to take seriously. Trolls from SomethingAwful hated GG and wanted to make it look like they were sending threats, and the two teen boys were friends of Brianna Wu and decided to prank Wu with harassing phone calls. What part of that was the FBI supposed to take seriously when the only evidence they could gather was from trolls who had no idea what GG was or had no affiliation with it?

    So Billy, allegations are floating around that the Kaczynski may have used tracking software in his e-mails to and from the innocent memer he tracked down on Reddit. https://mediaequalizer.com/jeff-reynolds/2017/07/exclusive-caught-red-handed-web-bug-found-in-emails-sent-by-embattled-cnn-reporter

    Also, as an aside, anyone notice that Kaczynski has a habit of going after the wrong person? Only luckily the guy he went after this time didn’t kill himself like the last guy did. You know, the guy that Kaczynski falsely accused of being behind the fucking Boston bombings?

    • Disqusted

      He also has a habit of being an asshole.

      • Cyberxion

        This is true.

    • Interesting development. Media Equalizer will definitely need a bit more proof about the the whole Mailtrack thing. I was hoping they would provide a test example so show how exactly it extracts the data or how it can be used to mine PII from a recipient. Right now, it’s a decent lead but there needs to be more substantial evidence, otherwise it does look inflammatory and possibly dips into libelous territory.

    Peasant steals piece of bread – criminal, sent him to prison!
    Peasant expresses his opinions that goes against snowflakes agenda on something – harasser, rapist!
    Good for nothing shitheads calling themselves journalists bends over to libtards, doxes and attacks people – we did nothing wrong!
    White privileged woman writes lies, misinformation and provides no proof to back up her claims – totally nothing wrong, vagina cant be wrong.
    Customers behind Gamergate tag gets slandered again for existing and standing up to themselves – ehh, they are greasy, creepy nerds while i am strong white woman swimming in abundance of privileges, i can write what i want because i am above law, ethics or rationality, but jeez i wonder why people dislike me? Must be because of sexism!

    “Felicia Day, actress and all-around nerd goddess, penned

    and to explain why she hadn’t spoken up about the controversy before
    then. Essentially, she wrote, she was scared of being doxed […]
    “Day was doxed minutes after publishing that blog post.”

    All-around nerd goddess? Really? No, she isn’t goddess. She is just another jealous good for nothing vagina owner, who hates men and wants to destroy everything they created. Instead of weapons, she uses her looks and manipulation (as its typical for modern female) to do so. She did nothing good for world and characters she voiced/performed are awful. She hates people who actually enjoys her work, especially gamers this is why she wrote that blog post. Nobody cared about her reactions or fears except 3rd party trolls. If she was scared of being doxed, she was better off turning on brain and not writing anything, but since females are so superior they can’t understand simple concept of “what you are afraid of is going to happen”. Fact that she was doxed minutes after that shows that it was nothing more than planned thing so she and her piss lickers can point fingers at gamergate and feel better about themselves.

    “Gamergate targeted game developers Zoe Quinn and Brianna Wu and Feminist Frequency founder Anita Sarkeesian, among others.”

    Nice little fairy tale you got there, Jessica. I wonder why it stinks like shit? Oh right because it is full of shit. Also neither Zoe nor Wu are developers, they are profeminist rainbow haired fascist hipsters who projects their crimes onto people they don’t like. Feces they made cannot be even called software, let alone games. Wu isn’t even a woman, but some weirdo freak masquerading as woman. Scameesian? One of biggest tagets of gamergate? Give me a break…
    No surprise most useless, lying and traitorous women in fiction are given name Jessica. You again just proved that real life owners of that name is exactly that.

  • ChaoticWin

    There is one point on which you are giving Felicia Day too much benefit-of-the-doubt.

    Her blog post used Disqus comments, and the post which doxed her /was the very first post./ Which suggests that whoever did it was already a fan of Day, and most likely a close collaborator — almost certainly an anti-GG provocateur. Too, Disqus as a platform makes it very simple for the publisher to moderate comments, with options such as Review-before-publish and Delete-post. The fact that it was the very first post, AND that Day allowed it to be published, AND that Day went on to use it as proof of what terrible people GGers were… suggests to me that it was not a third-party troll, but rather an AGG-approved false flag.

    Felicia Day was, at the time, very good friends with some notable AGG celebrity cunts, and it would not surprise me in the least if she had invented the entire narrative (described in the post) itself, arranged for the hour of publication, and provided her address to her buddy (or even making her own fake Disqus account and “doxing” herself) — all in the name of discrediting a movement she already hated.

    • ThyPancakeConsumed

      Its typical thing for women to do, victimhood won’t make itself, if you don’t put effort, y’know.

      • Disqusted

        It’s more like, humans will use their advantages as long as they don’t suffer consequences or punishment for doing so. Society lets women get away with terrible behavior, so many of them don’t see any reason not to behave badly, or to even stop.

        Same goes for corrupt assholes in general. No reason to stop the corruption until they get busted hard for it. Slap on the wrists isn’t enough. And the older they get, the less they care about punishment, I bet. They won’t be around long enough to serve it.

        • ThyPancakeConsumed

          Yes but if anything, this week taught us women are trouble and you need to make them jump thru shitload of hoops before letting them in, otherwise you will find your dick on clothes-line faster than you think.
          Once women’s rampages are brought into day light and they are answering for it, men will start think twice as well.

          • Disqusted

            Someone once told me it’s society that makes women f**ked up. I think it’s true in that raising women with infinite “get out of responsibility free” cards results in pretty messed up personalities.

          • ThyPancakeConsumed

            Around here we have saying “no matter how much you feed wolf, he is gonna look towards forest.” I think civilization should start applying that or “farmer and viper” story to women because that’s exact same thing happening with them.

    • This could be true, and while there’s potential motive behind setting up a false flag dox, we don’t really have enough proof to say for certain that’s what happened.

      In the same case that we can’t label #GamerGate as a harassment campaign without substantial proof — and various people asked me to report on how it was a harassment campaign, but every time I asked them for some kind of evidence they ducked out — it would be unfair to also label Felicia Day as an organizer of her own harassment for victim points.

      Nevertheless, you do make some interesting points worth contemplating.

  • anopolis

    so heres an honest quesiton…does the writer as engadget really believe the shit they wrote?? or is every journalist out there that damned dishonest?…if they believe it i can not hate them, however if they are all lying? there needs to be a reckoning..like I reckon they should all eat a bag of dicks.

    • That’s a good question.

      Maybe she’s so insulated into the SocJus community where she actually believes what she writes? I know of some people who are so mentally disturbed that they actually do latch onto the victim narrative and believe it with all their might. So it’s not an impossibility.

  • Engadget is still around?

  • Disqusted

    I heard about them defending CNN, didn’t know they slandered gamers AGAIN. Fake news defends fake news by reporting fake news.

    DRAIN THE SWAMP. And what a deep swamp they are.

    Looks like they need a few more Hulk Hogan style lawsuits to teach them simple morals and ethics. One clearly wasn’t enough.

    • Unfortunately you don’t get many people with the finances of Hogan and Thiel.

      Outlets like this get away with lies and slander because they know that your average person does not have the time nor finances to set up lawsuits against them. Legal fees are very expensive.

      It’s like this in the UK as well. Tabloid newspapers make a living out of destroying people’s lives according to their own personal views and agenda. And virtually all of them are SJW left-leaning.

      • Disqusted

        Yeah, I know. It’s bullshit that we can’t do anything without money. And people keep trying to pretend that’s not a problem. They keep saying, anyone can afford to do this or that! Bullshit.

        That’s why we have people like Soros who are literally succeeding at destroying the world, just by throwing money around. The system allows, or even encourages that. Or they changed it to, over time.

        • Yeah, I know. It’s bullshit that we can’t do anything without money. And people keep trying to pretend that’s not a problem. They keep saying, anyone can afford to do this or that! Bullshit.

          Well some people keep saying that the answer to this is a class-action lawsuit.

          But realistically how many situations are there actually going to be where a large group of people are slandered for the same crime?

          Not to mention having enough people within that slandered group to actually have the guts or care enough to do something about it?

    • Disqusted

      Speaking of fake news, look at this rot:
      https://i.redd.it/ltsmu5yjrd8z.png

      They’re all doubling down on the stupidity. How far can they go before they lose all their supporters to common sense?

    It still amazes me that they can look at the FBI report that clearly states the two people who were busted admitted to having nothing to do with GamerGate and were regulars of a site that leaned anti-GamerGate since GG started and still make the claim that the FBI caught GG supporters harassing people.

    They’re doing it on purpose, there is no other explanation.

    Off topic news for ya Billy, in case you didn’t see it already.

    Crazy stuff going down on the Friday the 13th Game community. People getting unfairly banned because an alleged community manager at Turtle Rock studios abused her connections to the devs in this game to get other players banned, but not themselves for instigating it and breaking the rules by teamkilling to assist Jason.

    I also saw two posts in their official reddit page (for the game) that mentioned how mods were already resigning over the dev’s actions. Also note how the dev’s response to Dilly’s review is to imply he sexually harassed a minor despite doing no such thing (they also present zero evidence (that I’ve found at least) despite such a big accusation). Bonus point for Dilly is that he has multiple witnesses to these events.

        Speaking of bullcrap, Google are removing tens of thousands of negative reviews of CNN’s phone app on their Google store. Not surprising, since they do that all the time on YouTube.

      Yes, there are literally women (and men disguised as women) who do this. Notice nobody disguises as a man to get some of that tasty “patriarchal privilege”.

      Edit: Dunno if she announced her position at the start or end, but either way she didn’t need to advertise her cronyism and could have just reported them without using inside connections.

    • If this person recorded it, it would’ve been far better evidence in the long run. Regardless, though, what a pathetic community manager.

        I wonder if her name was Dina.

        • GodBowser

          When a read the “her” part I started to wonder if she managed to convince another dev to take her on as their community manager or it could be another crackpot feminazi that’s doing the same thing as her

      • I contacted Gun Media about it. I’ll see if they have anything to add before doing an actual article.
