Anita has never reported anything about death threats to police as she claimed. A mainstream journalist has now investigated and confirmed it.
I don't know if you can call Breitbart mainstream, and I still wonder why so many #gamergate people love quoting him as not attacking gamers when he said this:It's easy to mock video gamers as dorky loners in yellowing underpants. Indeed, in previous columns, I've done it myself. Occasionally at length. But, the more you learn about the latest scandal in the games industry, the more you start to sympathise with the frustrated male stereotype.
A gross guy who has rarely mentioned video games before, and when he has he's mentioned gamers with disdain, jumps in on this and people applaud him because he agrees with them, even when he calls them dorky loaners with yellowing underpants.
Same with Adam Baldwin. Guy has no interest in games, but suddenly he's a champion. No one minds that he has awful opinions on most things, because, you know, games. Now he's a hero worth quoting.
I have no opinion on what Milo said, because it's a tweet and not the full story, and because Milo is basically as disgusting a human being as anyone that would write for Breitbart.
