Interesting on MMA media

"If you are credentialed by the UFC, then it is almost assumed that you are a little bit corrupted," he explained. "It has less to do with the actual people credentialed and more to do with the fact that Dana has thrown so many people out. That was something that I was certainly aware of when I was working for USA Today full time. I knew that the feeling was that if you were inside the circle that you had to be compliant."

Given Dana's history of banning media members like Loretta Hunt and Josh Gross, it is understandable why some would question those who are able to get access. However, USA Today says they have nothing to hide regarding their relationship with the UFC.

Interesting article.

"If you are credentialed by the UFC, then it is almost assumed that you are a little bit corrupted," he explained.

Seems like a bit of an understatement based on the BS I read on many of these websites and seen on these news programs over the years.
