Crispy Gamer Roasts GP Over Thompson Coverage

Over at Crispy Gamer, game scribe Kyle Orland pokes fun at the whole Jack Thompson is a media creation bit, with GamePolitics coming in for some extra attention:

A group of prominent game journalists is gathering together to fight the recent disbarment of anti-game crusader Jack Thompson. The group, headed by GamePolitics editor Dennis McCauley, issued an open letter to the Florida Supreme Court this morning, urging them to reinstate the controversial former lawyer…

 

The statement also included a link to an online petition where gamers could sign up to "get Jack Thompson off the bread lines and back in the headlines, where he belongs." Signatories on the letter include prominent writers for Kotaku, Joystiq, Destructoid and dozens of other gaming blogs…

 

McCauley is worried that those reveling in Thompson’s fall from grace haven’t fully absorbed what the game journalism landscape will look like without him… McCauley went on to argue that Thompson delivered "the spittle-flecked, borderline-incoherent rants that gamers wanted — that they needed — and in that he’ll be nearly impossible to replace. We’ve lost a giant, and we need to do everything we can to get him back."
 

GP: Funny stuff, Kyle.

Oh, and I have just one word for you: paybacks…
