Several female journalists have accused their male colleagues of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and worse. They have been compiling their accusations in what has been dubbed the Shitty Men in Media List. BuzzFeed broke the story about the existence of the list, but no one has made the full list public.
Shitty Men In Media Full List (Updates Coming)
The allegations on the spreadsheet range from “flirting” and “weird lunch dates“ to accusations of rape, assault, stalking, harassment, and physical violence. What these things have in common is that they remind women, particularly vulnerable women, that they are not in power.
Mike Cernovich of Cernovich Media has obtained the full Shitty Men in Media List and will be publishing it in full. However, Cernovich wants to give the men accused of sexual misconduct time to reply. We will be updating this page frequently.
- Disclaimer: This list has been in circulation for several weeks, and the accusations are anonymous. Cernovich Media does not claim these accusations are true, and instead is reporting on the existence on the list and the accusations contained there. We encourage our readers to reserve judgment
Sam Biddle, formerly of Gawker and currently at The Intercept, is on the Shitty Men in Media List.
Sam Biddle, formerly of Gawker, became famous for creating an online hate mob against Justine Sacco, a private citizen who made an ironic joke. As a result of Biddle’s actions, Sacco was threatened with death and rape. She had to leave the Internet and has tried to rebuild her life. How does Sam Biddle treat women in real life?
According to the Shitty Men in Media List – which includes anonymous accusations – Sam Biddle has engaged in the following behavior:
“Inappropriate communication, harassment, inappropriate digital contact, sexual assault, followed someone into a bathroom and tried to masturbate in front of them.”
Sam Biddle is also an advocate of bullying, famously Tweeting that “Nerds should be constantly shamed and degraded into submission.”
Cernovich Media emailed Biddle as well as his editor Glenn Greenwald for comment. We have not received a reply as of press time.
We will update this article with any reply from Sam Biddle and others, and will post their full reply.
