SPC writes, "I wasn't going to give another writer the time of day, but articles like the one I am about to bring up just drive home the realization that a significant portion of gaming journalism is laughable. Now, to preface this, I cannot pretend that all games journalism is bad or that I am the perfect writer. I am most certainly not and have committed missteps before, but when such an egregious example of poor journalism is written, I must act.
It's not the fact that Nintendo was mentioned, it could have been any company, but it's the mention of Michael Pachter and a cringe-worthy article made by Jim Sterling in his defense and more importantly how he defended him that brought me to write this piece. If there is anything I have learned from following games and the industry much more closely over the years, it is that there is no low games journalism won't sink to. The latest man to sink like a battleship is Jim Sterling (well, again), though that should be expected with his history."
