I love how they're starting at "Bannon hasn't murdered anyone" and working upwards.

The thing about the Bannon column is that it a needs "*so far"

Actually that reminds me that stories have been running that looked into what Bannon did before running Breitbart: He ran a WoW gold selling company and convinced Goldman Sachs (!) to invest in it. Child soldiers might be a bit much*, but child slavery might be a distinct possibility.

*so far

Alternatively, maybe Fox News just put together a list of all the crimes/immoral acts that Bannon has not yet committed.

The company that they're talking about was IGE, which became one of, if not the big name in goldselling. There's a huge story on wired that I can't get right now but it outlines the eventual plan was to convince companies that the only way to combat gil selling was to endorse it. IGE was legitimately big, because it ended up being the first "big company" approach to gilselling/goldselling and was far more agile than the game companies.

They had a huge presence in FF11, and most people I talk to remember it from there - it was next to impossible for a while to get any rare drops, because IGE's people would camp the sites forever.

Slam cut to today, where you can now take a bunch of gold in WoW, go to the ingame, legal auction house, buy a WoW Token, and through blizzard's official services and machinations, turn it into $15 in Battle.net Balance, thus makign you able of buying Overwatch Loot Crates, Hearthstone Card Packs, or Heroes of the STorm things with WoW Gold.
