Echo Screen Live #45: Ethics in Gaming Journalism

Chat with us live every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9 PM Eastern. And don’t forget that we’re now a downloadable podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, and any podcatching app of your choice – Search for “Echo Screen Live”.

We didn’t want to… but it’s too big to ignore. The gaming world has been in a tizzy the past few weeks with accusations of misogyny, corruption, and name-calling flying about. We’d like to dig through the muck and discuss the real core of what so many are upset about: ethics in gaming journalism.
