Gamergate Edit

Alleged Denton Facebook leak Edit

On November 4, 2014, KingOfPol released an alleged Facebook post by Nick Denton describing a psychological operation against his critics to "infiltrate the group and kill them from the inside" and a second post threatening to fire the leaker of the first post. Denton closed his Facebook page the same day. KingOfPol initially claimed to have received the posts from Kotaku editor Stephen Totilo but later admitted that the source was an anonymous email from a fake account. 8chan founder Frederick Brennan wrote a Medium article sharply condemning KingOfPol, writing "I will never trust anything he says again because he blatantly lied to me to get me to confirm something on Twitter."

Retirement Edit

On November 5, KingOfPol announced a temporary retirement from covering Gamergate.

Shilling accusations Edit

On November 6, KingOfPol posted an IRC log dating from October 6 of people calling for Gamergate activists to oppose Slade Villena's proposed Operation Vox Populi.
