Role In Gamergate

Nyt sarkeesian article.jpg

On October 16 2014, the New York Times published an article by Nick Wingfield which editors gave the misleading headline "Feminist Critics of Video Games Facing Threats in 'GamerGate' Campaign".[1] The article was placed by the Bohle Company of Sue Bohle, the PR representative of Kate Edwards of IGDA.[2]

A member of Something Awful took credit for the "Goon-started drama" that reached the front page of the New York Times.[3]

Supporting letters

The New York Times received and published letters from three people connecting alleged harassment of Sarkeesian with those concerned about collusion and falsehoods in the media:[4]

Significance

Following the publication of this headline, most major media refused to mention any allegations of close relationships and undisclosed collusion between writers and developers, and would instead falsely claim that Gamergate was a harassment campaign.
