ABC’s nightline piece insulting to every gamer out there


I felt insulted by the so called “reporting” that ABC put out. As a gamer I think I am smart enough to know the difference between reality and fiction, but according to ABC’s  nightline we gamers cannot tell the difference between fiction or reality. Not only did they promote negative stereotypes which have been used to bully people for decades. But they also put forth outright false information to demonize gamers and the medium as a whole. There was no effort to discuss the ethics issues of Gamergate at all, ABC was pushing a negative stereotype to drive up their ratings. And this is a prime example of yellow journalism that is prevalent in today’s media.
