Analysis / Bias
In review, One Angry Gamer publishes news, reviews, and opinions on video games and the associated culture. The website features a tagline that reads “Delivering Gaming News Without Remorse.” Articles and headlines often contain emotionally loaded language such as this CLIFFY B REGRETS MAKING LAWBREAKERS GET WOKE AND GO BROKE and this TWITTER SUSPENDS USER FOR USING “THOT” BECAUSE IT’S “HATEFUL CONDUCT”. The website also covers political news that is typically concerned with censorship and harshly criticizes Social Justice Warriors (ie. left). For example, in the article SLEEPING GIANTS CONTINUES QUEST TO DEPLATFORM ONE ANGRY GAMER, GATEWAY PUNDIT, they state “Basically, if you don’t kowtow to the Regressive Left’s ideology, then they make sure that you won’t have a platform to share any opinions they don’t like.” Further, simply searching for the term SJW (Social Justice Warrior) you find numerous stories railing against what they perceive as SJWs, such as this: CRAZY SJWS TARGET HERO HEI FOR CRITICIZING TEMTEM’S PRONOUNS.
Editorially, One Angry Gamer can only be described as far-right or alt-right with numerous examples of derogatory wording toward the left. As stated above there is strong preoccupation with so called Social Justice Warriors. For example, they have criticized video game creators for strong feminist characters as well as LGBTQ characters such as this: GLAAD ADDS AWARD CATEGORY FOR VIDEO GAMES THAT FEATURE LGBTQ PROPAGANDA. In general, this an opinion website that portrays the left negatively.
Overall, we rate One Angry Gamer Right Biased based on editorial positions that strongly favor the right. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to a lack of transparency with authors, and articles that are frequently opinion-based, covering controversial topics. (D. Van Zandt 2/9/2020)
