OK, they weren’t literally spooning, but I wanted to try an Enquirer Headline to see if I caught any eyes. Ariel Helwani is a writer for MMAFighting.com. He was also a paid Shill for Dana White UFC, and when Helwani stepped off the reservation and reported something that White didn’t want released, he was “banned for life”. The lifetime ban lasted about 2 days, but during his ban he admitted that UFC’s parent company paid him.
It’s kinda the state of journalism now. Reporters aren’t very objective in 2016. Too many let loyalties (or paychecks) dictate their stories.
