  8. Information:
  9. Michael McWhertor was a Kickstarter backer for Republique by Camoflauj:
  10. Kickstarter funding period: Apr 10 2012 - May 11 2012:
  12. Articles with Potential Conflicts of Interest:
  13. 04.10.12: République Brings Ambitious Stealth Survival to iOS from Former Metal Gear Solid Producer (GameTrailers)
  14. 05.10.12: The final, hopeful hours of République's Kickstarter quest (Polygon)
  15. 02.01.13: The state of Republique: Camouflaj's ambitious iOS game comes out of hiding (Polygon)
  16. 12.16.13: Camouflaj's Republique hits iTunes App Store on Dec. 19 (Polygon)
  18. Summary:
  19. On-going coverage of Republique while being a backer and after funding was successful. It is highly likely that he was already a backer when the May article on Republique was submitted to Polygon. I should note once again that the purpose behind a kickstarter is to fund a project. A journalist funding a project is in a conflict of interest with his role. I found no disclosure of this kickstarter backing. (Kickstarter is about "funding" projects.
