Vox's brands are built on Concert, a publisher-led market place for advertising, and Chorus, its proprietary content management system.

The company owns and operates its offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, and San Francisco. The network now features over 300 sites with over 400 paid writers.

Why They're Rotten

  1. They run Polygon, The Verge and Jezebel, all of which are corrupt and biased.
  2. They are very pro-political correctness... and yet, they made a video about YouTuber Filthy Frank, who has content that is very dark and yet considered very funny because of this.
  3. Supports the imprisonment of all innocent men.
  4. They have called ethics in journalism dumb.
  5. One sided poorly researched articles.
  6. They are responsible for creating several anti-GamerGate articles. They've also tried to get the KotakuInAction subreddit offline. And they even claimed that GamerGate will lose, even though they have been highly successful in their goals.  
  7. On many instances, they've tried to politicize entertainment such as movies. They've even found a way to make Star Wars political. 
  8. They forbid their employees from using "microaggressions" or "mansplaining".
  9. Has made several mistakes in creating articles.
  10. They published an article bashing the US Marine Corps, on Memorial Day
  11. Despite their nature as a progressive journalist site, one editorial director was fired for sexual harassment. Other site members have also been accused of multiple cases of sexual misconduct.[1]
  12. They have called corporations of America the moral voice. Even though in reality many corporations are driven solely by profit and are involved in bribery, corruption and embezzlement.[2]
  13. Cannot accept being called out as they blamed an IRS scandal for their financial troubles.
  14. Whitewash corrupt and violent groups such as Black Lives Matter.[3]
  15. They defended Gawker when they were being utterly destroyed by Operation Disrespectful Nod and a lawsuit.
  16. Any show or movie with a predominantly Black cast gets high praises.
  17. Their editorial director was fired for sexual misconduct.
  18. They were forced to apologize calling Pizza Party Ben an anti-semite.
  19. They defended James Gunn for his disgusting pedophilia tweets and then blame it on GamerGate, instead.
  20. They inflated the number of the alt right to spread a narrative of how extremely powerful they are.
  21. They claimed that PewDiePie was antisemitic in two occasions:
    • The first time when he gave shoutouts to E;R, an anime review channel full of edgy content.
    • The second time when he was playing Pavlov on VR and someone with a Rabbi Shekel (anti-semitic handle) username and a "Happy Merchant" (the anti-semitic drawing of a jew) profile pic shot the guy who was talking to him. The writer didn't take into account that Felix was in a online game in which he cannot control who he plays with nor change their avatars at will.
  22. Carlos Maza's scuffle with Steven Crowder, enough said.


Redeeming Qualities

  1. They've suspended their deputy editor Emmett Rensin, who encouraged people to riot if Donald Trump comes to their town.[4]
