That goes to the heart of another matter. What is a journalist these days? Blogs an amateur reporting are huge today and often break stories that "real" journalists can't or won't break. Someone else pointed out earlier that what's happening to mainstream game journalism has happened in journalism at large, just faster. You had a group of people do the job and build up trust and then take advantage of that trust to promote agendas by hiding some stories and promoting others. That lost trust becomes nearly fatal to their profession as people realize that journalists are not wizards with some sort of mysterious knowledge of the inner workings of the world. They are people with their own ideas and bias.

The entire journalism and review side of gaming is FUBAR. The industry itself, while making money blah blah blah, is practically killing itself by condoning this behavior. Then again this is also what happens when there are zero legal ramifications for obviously corrupt practices. On top of anything else the new generation of idiots taking over pop culture and gaming itself are too stupid to give a fuck or even be aware of what's going on. History always repeats itself...

We're doing fine without legal ramifications in my view. If this backlash continues then justice will have been meted out well enough.

I may disagree with evil and find his shit obnoxious/stupid at times, but at least I know he won't turn a blind eye to the 500lb elephant in the room.
