We're talking about video games and people that write about video games and the people that play them. We can do that without assigning it world-shattering importance. It's called perspective.
Here's some perspective: People know that gaming journalism is corrupt, and badly corrupt. Many people used to believe that broadcast and print media was not corrupt, but now believe it is. People lashed out when that same corruption began to infect their hobby, these are the same people who didn't care about the corruption in the print/broadcast media.
A person who gains the experience to throw down one, and call for accountability will do the same again. This is called stepping stones, and if you believe that "corrupt broadcast and print media" isn't of world shattering importance, you're simply being naive.
