Role in Gamergate

February 17, after when the Law and Order SVU reference Gamergate, Mark Kern made a petition to Kotaku and Polygon requesting them to cease their sensationalizing reporting and do a serious actual coverage of ethics, women in gaming, and video games as a positive change.[4] [5]

That same day, Patrick Garratt, one of VG247.com's writers, penned an article about this petition, claiming there's no yellow journalism and asking for those gaming news sites to fix their ways is blaming the messenger.
