Talk:Mainstream Media Coverage

I recommend sorting the articles into categories in Narrative Framing to give a clearer picture of the "waves" of articles they use to push narratives. --Kawaiisenpai (talk) 01:22, 3 November 2014 (EST)

I'll do that once I've properly dated all articles. In fact, why not merge the two articles? SKS45 (talk) 03:30, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
I second this proposal. Maintaining two identical lists is generally a waste of contributor resources. But there are certain limitations getting in the way of this. Let's say you wanted to see 'all negative articles published by the BBC' for example. Because the 'Narrative Framing' page isn't organized with that in mind, you would have to hit ctrl+f and then manually scroll through them all. You could solve that problem by changing the page from a list format to a table format, but these tables can very easily end up a huge mess that makes it difficult to edit or to digest information. We should get PsychoRobot's input on it. Fitzgerald (talk) 15:36, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Seeing as I try to edit the Narrative Framing section I have a clear bias towards it. However, that said I do believe the Mainstream Media Coverage article should be kept but for a different purpose. instead of MSM coverage of Gamergate it should be used to highlight the MSM/not so MSM coverage of hot topics involving gaming such as the recent problems involving Hatred and Steam of course this is merely my opinion and I feel this should be given a much more indepth review and discussion between the editors involved for both Narrative Framing and Mainstream Media Coverage - CrazedMan (talk) 19:28, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

I have a similar problem in terms of categorization. I've got several articles which *are* gamergate-related, but aren't what you would typically imagine being described as "mainstream media" (e.g: http://theweek.com/article/index/270115/gamergate-has-backfired-spectacularly-on-its-nincompoop-perpetrators) Fitzgerald (talk) 06:39, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
ah that sort of article has a section already here Narrative Framing I have taken the liberty of adding not only the article you linked to the list but also created an archive version in case anything happens to the original. - CrazedMan (talk) 03:59, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Seemingly stripped in an update

Feminist video-games talk cancelled after massacre threat, Leo Kelion, 15 October 2014

New page looks fine, but this article got stripped. Mistake or was there a reason? --SoggyKnees (talk) 17:34, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

I can't see a reason for it to be removed. But I do also wonder whether somebody (was it you perhaps?) since came along and fixed the problem, because I'm looking at the page and it *is* on there. I should also say while I'm here, that the two archived links for the last BBC headline point to two slightly different articles. I couldn't be bothered deciding why that's the case and what I should do about it so I just left them pointing to two slightly different places. Ohh and the soundcloud links; they could do with improvement also. I don't really know why the entire "tech segment" should be archived if it's not related to gamergate.
