Role in GamerGate[[[index.php?title=The_Verge&action=edit&section=1|edit]]]

Besides being one of the sites engaging in censorship, The Verge has also run a number of hit pieces on GamerGate. YouTube celebrity TotalBiscuit has tweeted about the site's injection of gender politics into articles.[1][2]

Unethical practices[[[index.php?title=The_Verge&action=edit&section=2|edit]]]

It was noted around January 24, 2015,[3] that the site uses undisclosed affiliate links in an article[4] as well as using Skimlinks as a referral service[5][6] which is a clear violation of FTC rules and should be reported.[7] Furthermore, their current FAQ on disclosure[8] doesn't meet FTC (minimum) guidelines, and the site has no mention about cookies in their ethics statement.[9]
