New York Times
Role In Gamergate
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". The article was placed by the Bohle Company of Sue Bohle, the PR representative of Kate Edwards of IGDA.
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:
- Vander Caballero, founder and CEO of Minority Media
- Joshua Eschen of Lawrence Township, New Jersey
- Ruta Sevo, retired National Science Foundation senior program officer for Research on Gender in Science and Engineering.
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.
- The New York Times article gave favorable coverage to Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency whose writer Jonathan McIntosh had previously worked for Mimi Ito, the sister of New York Times board member Joichi Ito.
- Anita Sarkeesian had previously been highlighted by several of the Gamers are Dead articles which had proven collusion between the writers of multiple publications.
- Sue Bohle is the longtime PR representative for Microsoft and handles PR for the Game Developers Conference and Penny Arcade Expo.
- Kate Edwards and multiple members of IGDA were present in OpGamergate, an aborted Anonymous operation to target people discussing Gamergate.
- Kate Edwards and the FBI had been working since July 2014 on a project "to combat online harassment", specifically mentioning Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn. 
On May 1, 2015 the editorial board of the New York Times endorsed the HeartMob project of Emily May of Hollaback, and the Gamergate Autoblocker of Randi Harper which blocks Twitter users who have discussed Gamergate. 
Around April 2016 the New York Times began to demand access to the Facebook friends lists of users who wanted to leave comments on articles.
