Jonathan Snowden ?@JESnowden
UFC President seems to confirm rumors that MMA Junkie/USA TODAY coverage contigent on ad buys.
So who is writing the first story about the worst kept secret of @danawhite paying @USATODAY for coverage?
from shill em all by ug'er brian d'souza
The unsubstantiated rumor that incited our entire Shill ‘Em All series was a post on Reddit that claimed the UFC was directly paying expenses for MMAJunkie.com in exchange for favorable coverage of the UFC in USA Today. While I never found a smoking gun tying the UFC to USA Today/MMAJunkie like Tim Marchman of Deadspin.com did to tie VICE’s Fightland section to the UFC, I did talk to many high-level MMA reporters and editors who tipped me off to simpler, more obvious connections between the UFC and favorable relationships with certain media outlets — ads.
and here's the reddit post
TIL that the Ultimate Fighting Championship bankrolls MMAjunkie.com
Ever wonder how MMAjunkie gets all of those big scoops directly from the UFC for USA Today and their own website?
It's not because they're doing good reporting. It's because they're being called up and given scoops. And this is happening because the UFC told the people at Gannett (the owners of USA Today and Junkie) that, in exchange for giving them considerable press in the actual USA Today newspaper, they would pay a considerable portion of Junkie's expenses. That includes the reporters on staff.
They'd also give them exclusive access to scoops as long as those scoops premiered in the newspaper before they appeared anywhere else.
Interesting stuff, don't you think? That an outlet everyone considers to be a prestigious MMA news outlet is actually a paid division of the UFC's PR department? I think it's interesting.
In to post the same links and quotes^^
Here's a post from Brian D'Souza from about an hour ago:

Some people always saw journalists as prostitutes they could pay to use. When media doesn't play that role, the Johns get mad & lash out.
Humming that REM song about the apocalypse.
What's it called again?
Dana certainly sounds like he needs a break. Time to go on vacation.
Dana needs Stitch to come and Stitch his asshole. He's losing it.
