Episode 47: Jason Schreier Knew About Blizzard Abuse for Years

Splash Damage

The last “respectable” video game journalist, Jason Schreier, admitted he knew about the sexual misconduct occurring at Blizzard years before it came to light. He claims he wanted to corroborate the allegations before reporting them, but that caution never stopped him from signal-boosting the paper-thin allegations against developer Chris Avellone. We discuss Schreier’s hypocrisy and agenda-based reporting along with the latest in the Blizzard controversy, Ash Parrish leaving Kotaku, Destructoid saying a lot of nothing about gender in games, Mary Sue bullying a Twitter nobody over his benign opinions, and Susan Arendt buying a game based on nothing but its protagonist’s appearance.
