But we can hardly call him a professional writer
Somebody pays him to write (heaven knows why), so it's fair.

We know why. Russ Bottomless Pitts is almost as big of a shitstain as he is and is filthy fucking rich. Nice of him to use his money to buy a whole gaming company just so he can virtue signal and harbor the career delusions of a narcissistic cis white manatee from an upper middle class background instead of helping poor black children or literally any of the other causes shitlibs pretend to care about.

I doubt he's filthy rich. Probably well off at best. Remember that he couldn't afford to buy The Escapist outright

Wealthy enough to buy a fairly prominent website, put a bunch of employees on his payroll, and not care at all if he loses money on it. That's nowhere near Zuckerberg or Bezos rich, but it's a lot wealthier than most people. I tried to find exactly how much he bought it for but I don't think the numbers have been made public.

It wasn't a fairly prominent website. The Escapist was pretty much dead. All the non-editorial staff were fired, except Yahtzee. They fired everyone else so they could afford to continue paying Yahtzee. They had to close their offices. The fact that Pitts couldn't afford to buy it even in that state proves he's not that wealthy.

Firstly they're not employees, they're freelance. A little piece of sophistry Bob was keen to point out when he tried to argue that he didn't get fired. Secondly, Pitts is not paying the payroll out of his own pocket, the actual owners are. Pitts merely bought into them and in exchange they let him be editor.

Again, it's not his money mostly. The reason he's so cavalier with other people's money is because, as we've mentioned, he's a piece of shit.

My guess is the video owners were kahntent to just make the site YahtzeCrowshaw.com then Pitts comes along with more money than sense buying his job back and hiring back anyone broke or dumb enough to return. Site owners probably were like worst case scenario they end up with more money to feed Yahtzee and jettison Potts and his gang when they shit up the site with more SJW bullshit and traffic dwindles to just people there to see the latest ZP.

Also, sidenote, even at It's heyday, there were grumblings from video contributors and staff that EsJayPist never paid on time, so they might have barely broke even but like most new media sites believed their traffic would grow and make up for it.

Speaking of old employers, ScrewAttack is getting rebranded solely as DeathBattle. Not a word from blob about thanking them for hosting his shit twice. Even James will show some gratitude when all they did was ride his coattails until DeathBattle took off.

Of course not. Bob is a petulant child who would never say thank you even though them hosting him the first time is the only reason this hack even has a 'career'. Whereas James is a mature adult who says thank you even though they just rode his coattails

Speaking of Pitts, he recently wrote this article about game journo ethics and REEEEING about Gamergate. Zoe bitches to Pitts on twitter about how dare he not ask her if he could write about it and when he shows the slightest bit of backbone, she and her tranny army go after him and he immediately apologizes. She then goes on about how she won't accept his apology and how she's been trying to "move past" Gamergate.

Of course she won't accept the apology. Apologies to SJWs are a sign that there's more to reee from the apologizer.
