Our article on Yellow Journalism, Quick & Dirty, has been heavily revamped. It is now the largest article on the site by a large margin, and aside from covering large game journalism scandals like the ones surrounding Brad Wardell, Denis Dyack or Max Temkin, it now discusses a variety of subjects, such as manufactured scandals, sensationalist reviews, media blitzes. There is even a section about the UVA rape hoax.

Due to being referenced in this article, a section of The Monster to silence has been slightly updated, and part of the previous version of Quick & Dirty has been moved to Unreliable Numbers. Several emblems will also be updated due to this article.
