Leftist activists posing as journalists have taken over most major media outlets save for a few Conservative establishments. Using their platforms, many of this Regressive Leftists have waged a campaign on anyone who doesn’t adhere to their strict rule of authoritarianism when it comes to geopolitics, national politics, and sociopolitics.
Three outlets in France: Le Monde, Canard PC, and Mediapart, took their activism to the next level by working together to formulate a hit-piece on French development studio, Quantic Dream. The hit-pieces were the standard accusations of a “toxic” employment culture of “sexism” and “racism”. Well, apparently Quantic Dream co-founder, David Cage, was no fan of their SJW activism and after initially denying the allegations, he decided to sue them.
Kotaku is reporting that David Cage confirmed to them that he’s suing the journalists from Le Monde, and from Mediapart. They also state that Canard PC received some legal threats but nothing else beyond that.
Kotaku dug a bit deeper and also discovered the French outlets confirmed to them that they are indeed being sued by Quantic Dream.
Journalist William Audureau, who had his hit-pieces against Quantic Dream published at Mediapart and Canard PC, and collaborated with Le Monde for sourcing his info, told Kotaku…
“The story has been written sincerely, following a well-documented, thorough investigation, respectful of the principle that both sides must be heard. We stick with our information.”
None of the outlets were able to elaborate on the details of the lawsuit due to the ongoing litigation, but Kotaku did manage to get confirmation from another Mediapart journalist, Dan Israel, with Jason Schrierer writing…
“Dan Israel, a journalist for Mediapart, told me this past weekend that Quantic Dream was also suing his outlet. He asked not to be quoted, citing the ongoing trial.”
This is the first time that a game development studio decided to fight back against the outlets propagating hit-pieces against them for either stepping out of the political line or not toeing the line hard enough.
Many Leftist outlets are quick to label developers and publishers as “sexist”, “racist”, “transphobic”, or “fascist” for not wholeheartedly agreeing with the Regressive Left’s narrative. It happened to Tim Soret, the French developer behind The Last Day, who was forced to publicly apologize on stage after being castigated by SJWs for not adhering to Anita Sarkeesian’s brand of fascist feminism. The entire controversy was summed up by Game Objective.
It also happened with Koei Tecmo, who was labeled as “sexist” and “misogynistic” by media outlets for releasing Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, and even furthermore, were heralded as enablers of “sexual assault” when they demonstrated the VR mode for the game.
Markus “Notch” Persson, the creator of Minecraft, was also dragged through the mud by the media for getting into a tussle with SJW agitators, as reported by Mandatory.
Heck, even veteran actor William Shatner was put through the wringer for calling out SJWs.
Well, this time around, Quantic Dream decided not to stand around and let the media bully them the way the media has bullied everyone else.
Whether or not they’ll win the fight remains to be seen, but if this becomes a standard – development studios suing corrupt journalists, SJW media rags, and politically regressive pundits – then it could finally put an end to the stranglehold that SJWs have on the gaming industry.
