www.independent.ie published a hit piece on Conor Mcgregor a week ago. http://www.independent.ie/sport/mma...ing-genius-or-corporate-sellout-34437701.html The same site published a retort to the opinion piece today. http://www.independent.ie/sport/mma...m-a-starting-point-of-ignorance-34469312.html some excerpts Again, I don’t expect everyone to be a fan of ‘The Notorious’ and that’s fine. O’Malley admitted on the radio interview that he had “watched some his press conferences and some of the fights, I’m no expert on UFC myself.” He went on to say that his issue with McGregor was “the arrogance of the way he comes across and the way the sport the UFC itself embodiment of the neo liberalism of global corporate power”. He felt McGregor was merely a “pawn in a neo liberal game” and there is nothing “at the core of McGregor’s ideology other than neo liberalism of global corporate power”. In a conversation on Twitter O’Malley defended his article as it is an opinion piece and therefore it can’t be wrong, as such. It is however very ill-informed and inaccurate in places . Whether it was a personal attack or an attempt to capture some McGregor time for himself it smacks of begrudgery.
