Why They're Heavily Rotten

  1. They promoted the Church of Scientology and removed any comments criticizing the church.
  2. Very anti-GamerGate and ComicsGate.
  3. The stupidest thing they claimed was constellations being sexist.
  4. Inconsistent viewpoints.
  5. Very out of touch with the gaming culture such as saying that nostalgia was "holding back" games.
  6. A variety of contributes are heavily SJW-pandering, especially Jemele Hill, Taylor Lorenz, and Ta-nehsi Coates.
  7. Ironically one of their journalists is even pro-war on Iraq Jeffery Goldberg supporting just about every decision the government makes on the ongoing war on terror.
  8. They are also pretty anti-cop as they attacked a movie Dragged Across Concrete for having corrupt cops as anti-heroes.
  9. They attacked anybody for wearing certain Halloween costumes and called them racist.
  10. Ironically, they even defended Jordan Peterson from his interview with Cathy Newman.
  11. Taylor Lorenz had the nerve of calling air conditioning sexist, and this led to a massive backlash.
  12. Taylor Lorenz also frames YouTubers in a negative light and SJW supporters in a positive light.
  13. They also removed the comments section from their own site.
  14. Hypocritically, Ethan Van Sciver gave them information, but the contributor of The Sight blocked him for being a ComicsGate figurehead.
  15. They blamed GamerGate for the Jacksonville mass-shooting.
  16. They also framed WikiLeaks for being "alt-right".
  17. They defended Gawker from when Peter Thiel and Hulk Hogan were suing them.
  18. They called Silicon Valley, one of the most female-friendly places in tech, sexist.
  19. They bashed Free State of Jones for having Matthew Mcounghey as the protagonist.
  20. Jemele Hill is, also ironically, really racist for stating that Black students should leave white colleges, despite the fact colleges are also attended by other cultural groups.
  21. Jemele Hill also whitewashes and defends the actions of NFL players bending the knee and pro-black groups. In addition, she has a very strong anti-police stance. She was also responsible for the vast amount of SJW agenda on ESPN.
  22. Jemele Hill even implicitly hinted that Trump should be killed during a State of the Union address. Secret Service became aware of that and had placed her under investigation.
  23. Even ironically Marcus Wiley called out Jemele Hill for questioning if Colin Kapernick was truly black or not, even though he is biracial.
  24. Jemele Hill even attacked Jordan Peterson and smeared him as a white supremacist for addressing the Seahawks football team.
  25. Jemele Hill also attacked Kid Rock and smeared him as racist, despite the fact that Kid Rock is far from it and has no interest in politics when it comes to his friends.
  26. Jemele Hill hypocritically stated that white women are not the face of feminism, even though it was founded by them during the suffrage movement.
  27. A large amount of poor sourcing in order to create anti-Trump narratives.
    • Someone who read it later summed up the tone as "We won; fuck you."
    • The succession battle they described is marked by old grievances, petty rivalries, and deceptively-high stakes.
    • Trump was a teetotaler, so Don drank heavily. In his college fraternity, he developed a reputation for blacking out. "He was drinking himself into a really dark place," said one former fraternity brother, who recalled Don breaking down in tears at a party as he talked about his father. "He hated what his dad did to his mom. For a while, he didn’t even want people to know his last name."
    • "People started to realize this wasn’t about Trump’s vision," one former aide told me. "It was about Ivanka’s ability to feel comfortable in her New York circle."
    • Rumors swirled that a state-level staffer had been fired after displeasing Ivanka. True or not—a spokesperson for Ivanka declined to comment—the story reinforced an impression that the candidate’s favorite child was untouchable. "It all felt very Tudor," said the former aide. "Aside from whispers in the bathroom, nobody would dare say anything bad about Ivanka. It was the kind of thing that would get you tarred and feathered."
    • Yet when Don offered to help his father’s campaign, many of the tasks he received had a whiff of condescension. Trump had always been embarrassed by his son’s hunting, especially after photos emerged in 2012 of Don posing with the severed tail of an elephant he’d slain in Zimbabwe. But now that the candidate was wooing rural Republicans, he was happy to let Don put on that goofy orange vest and shoot at stuff for the cameras. "You can finally do something for me," Trump told Don, according to a former aide.
    • "The brothers thought Jared was a yes-man," said a former Trump adviser. "Don, especially, looked at him as very suspect."
    • "The Trump Tower meeting was Don’s move to take over the campaign," a former aide told me. "He was trying to show his father he was competent." (The spokesperson for Don said: "More fiction.")
    • "I just wake up in the morning and go to whatever city they tell me to," Don complained during one trip, according to a travel companion. "Jared’s the smart one. He has it all figured out."
    • "Going back to doing deals is boring," he reportedly told a gathering of gun enthusiasts. "The politics bug bit me."
    • Now that he had a chance to prove himself, Eric planned to exploit every opportunity. "The stars have aligned," he proclaimed. "Our brand is the hottest it has ever been."
    • Ivanka, who knew the order would be seen as anti-LGBTQ, enlisted Tim Cook—the gay Apple CEO, whose respect her father craved—to lobby Trump against signing it, according to a former White House aide.
    • Their efforts to change his mind about the Paris climate accord exasperated the president, who took to mocking their arguments when they weren't around. "They're New York liberals," he would say, according to a former White House aide. "Of course that's what they think."
    • A news story about Jared Kuchner using a private email server to conduct government business prompted a presidential meltdown in the Oval Office. "How could he be so stupid?" Trump fumed, according to a White House official who was present. "That's what Hillary did!"
    • Watching cable news coverage of the fiasco from the West Wing, Trump shook his head wearily. "He wasn't angry at Don," a former White House official recalled. "It was more like he was resigned to his son's idiocy." "He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer," Trump said with a sigh.
    • In an episode last year, Don answered questions about the Russia investigation while Eric ate Play-Doh. Real-life Don seems to have delight in these sketches, and has even publicly volunteered to come on the show to play himself. But within the Trump family, associates say, the brothers' roles are exactly reversed.
    • In fact, no one in the first family took Don's political ideas seriously, least of all Jared and Ivanka. "You never heard them say, 'We've got to get Don Jr.'s opinion on this,'" a former White House official told us.
    • Instead, his father had put his faith in a timid preppy. When photos were released of Jared in Iraq in the spring of 2017, sporting a flak jacket over his Oxford shirt and blazer, Don spent the afternoon trading gleeful text messages with friends about Martha's Vineyard-meets-Mosul getup.
    • One source told me that after her attendance at a White House Fourth of July party sparked a round of fawning press coverage—upstaging Jared and Ivanka—Don was contacted by an official informing him that he would need to clear his guests the next time he visited.
    • But according to one longtime Trump adviser, there may have been another reason for his displeasure. Over the years, Trump had frequently made suggestive comments about Guilfoyle's attractiveness, the adviser told me, and more than once inquired about whom she was dating.
    • Ivanka's camp was enraged and suspected that Don was behind the story. Later, Don confronted Ivanka over rumors that her team was undermining him in off-the-record conversations with reporters. "Tell your people to stop trashing me to the media," he said, according to someone familiar with the conversation.
    • But within the president's orbit, there was a growing sense that his sons were driving the company into the ground.
    • According to a former White House aide, Trump talked about the issue so often that administration officials worried he would get himself in trouble trying to run the Trump Organization from the Oval Office.
    • While Don mulled his options, some allies talked him up as a potential chairman of the Republican National Committee. Others suggested he launch a right-wing political outfit that would allow him to hold rallies and bestow endorsements.
    • "During a family gathering at the White House, Trump was overheard questioning Don about whether he'd been using the company plane while shirking his day job." A Republican senator in the room intervened to say that without Don's work on the campaign trail, the party might not have kept its Senate majority. Trump seemed pleased: "I believe it."
  28. They called the movie When Harry Met Sally "sexist".
  29. They find outrage just about places where none is existent at all, such as calling the solar eclipse "racist".
  30. Very moral puritan stance against porn claiming it's ruining the internet.
  31. Their fake news pushing is so bad that even Secret Service put them on full blast.
  32. They mocked Donald Trumps Children especially Barron who nothing really to do with his policies.
