Operation Jazz Symphony
'Al Jazeera has a ethics code: https://archive.fo/6Mkdr
Al Jazeera has pulled articles and reports that are shown to be factually inaccurate, such as this. Their primary marketing point for its Western news branches is that they're "far more factual and objective" compare to its Western media competitors.
EITHER AL JAZEERA DID NOT CONDUCT PROPER RESEARCH ON THIS ISSUE, OR THIS PIECE WAS WRITTEN WITH BIAS IN MIND.
To correct Al Jazeera's highly inaccurate and biased Gamergate hit piece. Some time in December 10, 2014, they conducted an "investigative journalism" on Gamergate presenting both Anita Sankeesian and Brianna Wu's opinions as mere facts, even pushing the same old mantra that Gamergate is about driving women out of gaming and tech.
