Why They Insist That PewDiePie Is Dangerous For Your Children

“Anti-Semite!” – Walter Sobchak after smashing a Nihilist with a bowling ball. Who is PewDiePie and why should old gisers like yourself desire to waste time to find out?   Good question greybeards. First some context: My younger cousins don’t know who most actors are, but they are familiar with and follow many a YouTuber. They even watched the YouTube awards show. Ask many in generation Z and you’ll notice they spend a lot of time on there – far more than they do watching anything on cable or TV. Everything from videos on how to change your brakes and WorldStar fight compilations...

Should You Even Bother Grabbing Social Media By The Pussy?

No, you really shouldn’t, but let’s get into the why of the matter. Newsfeeds far and wide on your Facebook timelines  have probably had at least a few people complaining during Trumps Inauguration in obvious righteous indignation about how Trump is grabbing women by the pussy and some fuss about “sexual assault”, #NotMyPresident, blah blah blah. That’s merely the main culprit that rises to the top of the other myths being spread by supposed “IFuckingLoveScience” rationalists who populate social media streams with their absolute adherence to logic, reason,  Trump hate, and using the words “fascism” and “Hitler” to refer to anything they...

From Fox Lake Hero to Zero: The GI Joe Gliniewicz, Suicide, Narrative, And Politicization

Nasty, speculative, and “disrespectful” rumors floating around for over a month that Joe’s death was a suicide were finally confirmed today in what is now a backhanded blindside to the people of Fox Lake – and that’s just the first plot twist. The story takes yet another series of shocking twists – it’s like watching a movie –  and will definitely take many more considering the corruption charges the department is facing and the other “two” people who are being investigated. More and more information is seeping out and revealing Joe to be a man who swam in a cespool...

Those On The Wrong Side Of Weaponized Journalism

Journalism The Weapon Discretion and the choice of stories. An attentive media must cover the pressing issues of the day, as well as what is news. At the same time, the media chooses what is news by the stories it covers.     What is considered” news”  however, can be and often is driven by  twitter firestorms and twitter trends, social media platforms, Reddit’s front page,  and Facebook feeds in particular. Well, should journalists actually cover these kinds of stories?  Are they even stories worth covering? Should they be covered? One of the primary duties of the press has always been...

Mandatory Church Attendance? Or Just Misleading Clickbait?

Another day, another sensationalist story and headline too good to be true.  With headlines like, “Arizona Lawmaker: Church Attendance Should Be Mandatory,” social media feeds burst with anger, vitriol, and waxed lyrically about the necessity of Church and State and the insane and theocratic idea that is mandatory church attendance… Except that context of this entire faux outrage is crucial, but inconvenient in how it gets in the way of relaying the full picture about mandatory “church attendance”.   It is of course very easy to believe the worst about people’s whose politics you don’t like. During a committee with lawmakers in Arizona about gun...

“Harassment” Doesn’t Affect Nor Negate the Validity of #GamerGate’s Call For Ethics in Gaming Journalism

Retaking The Narrative: Ethics in Gaming Journalism “Guilt by Association” or rather “Wrong by Association” is one of the most utilized tactics of the online media age. It panders to the to the intellectual laziness in our culture which finds it much easier to dismiss arguments based on where they come from rather then what they are. It is why you will see/hear people dismiss arguments and positions based on retorts such as, “Alex Jones nut”, liberal whackjob, bible thumper, fundamentalist, ect.  instead of bothering to actually examine people’s arguments  Why? Because it is far less tim consuming to simply dismiss...

Should “Jackie” from the Rolling Stone article be doxxed? 0

Should “Jackie” from the Rolling Stone article be doxxed?

Another day on twitter and there are some who #IStandWithJackie.  Apparently Roosh  who runs the “infamous” Return Of Kings has information that exposes “Jackies” real identity from Rolling Stones infamous article on the UVA “gang rape” and is pondering on whether to publish it or not. This is a turning point for him.  I don’t know if Roosh considers himself to be a journalist, but I do consider him to be such to an extent. This is a heavy decision. I do not envy @rooshv right now. pic.twitter.com/dm24QMD7WP — Mike Cernovich (@PlayDangerously) December 6, 2014 Will he lower himself to the SJW...
