Where's the pervasive problem with ethics?

If this is all about ethics in journalism, I thought this page would be more substantial. I see some sloppy practices but not systemic corruption that so many GamerGaters decry. I realize this page is a work in progress, I just came here, seeking to see what evidence existed for rampant ethical violations and I just don't see it. If it's as bad as people claim, it should be widespread, it would involve perks from gaming companies and it would have lasted for a sustained period (years), not just be isolated incidents. 17:06, 28 October 2014 (EDT)

Here's a link to a timeline chronicling corruption in video game journalism: The Dirty History of Games Journalism. I'll be adding this link to the main article and will attempt to summarise its contents once I am able to find additional sources. SKS45 (talk) 18:30, 28 October 2014 (EDT)

Sometimes journalist write about Kickstarter scams. Sometimes they're involved in them. The current status of the Retronauts Kickstarter ran by Bob Mackey and Jeremy Parish or USGamer

The first link is about Microsoft handing consoles to journalists at E3 2010. I'm sure there have been several journos who attended E3 and wrote about Microsoft after recieving that gift. Does this mean they were at a conflict of interests? If so, we need to find as many names as possible of journalists who attended this conference and then find the articles they wrote about Microsoft. - Rust Cohle (talk) 22:59, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
have to agree but I do not know who made articles in that year and especially about microsoft. Perhaps you will have luck or perhaps a random digger has already found the information. There is also the game journalist that was given the Assassin's Creed flag worth a few hundred dollars - CrazedMan (talk) 09:24, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia COI area?

I went and added a section to this page to document the COIs on wikipedia since Wikia won't allow it. Lets get all of the verified documentation back up here. Infofeed (talk)

You started a section claiming there are COIs on wikipedia but didn't provide any evidence for it. I'm not saying there aren't GG-related COIs on wikipedia (although I'm not saying there are such COTs either, I'm not knowledgeable enough on this subject), but you can't just start a section claiming there are such COIs without providing evidence. If and when you or someone else will provide evidence for the existence of COIs on wikipedia, I wouldn't object to having a section on wikipedia in this article. - Rust Cohle (talk) 22:51, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
think this is the evidence he is refering to Dunno how it is related to Gamergate besides perhaps a few cases but still seeing as someone attempted to delete the entire wiki page its best to keep the archive here in case - CrazedMan (talk) 04:38, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Thats exactly it, I didn't have the data at the time, but knew it existed. I had put a call out on twitter to get people to add it here s--Infofeed (talk) 16:26, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
