Rob Beschizza at Boing Boing reports that Intel has pulled advertising from the gaming publication site Gamasutra, after the site posted criticism of the GamerGate movement.
Beschizza writes that after Intel was “flooded” with complaints about Gamasutra’s critique of the GamerGate campaign, Intel’s spokesperson Bill Calder confirmed the decision. Calder:
“We take feedback from our customers very seriously especially as it relates to contextually relevant content and placements.”
Beschizza goes on to explain that the GamerGate movement, now infamous for the harassment and threats against Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn, also “targeted journalists” critical of the GamerGate cause, including Leigh Alexander of Boing Boing.
