Another way to listen to the audio


I just don't know what to say.  I was genuinely interested in War Machine.  I followed his career and read his prison blogs.  I rooted for him.  I spoke with him and I wanted things to turn out well for him.  Of course I was also fascinated by how opinionated and forthright he was, but I guess I didn't want to believe in all the darker things that went with that.  This whole thing has been awful.

Jack, I really enjoy your interviews and I found it unfortunate at the time when you interviewed this scum. I hope in the future when you hear and SEE all the terrible things a guy is involved with you PASS on presenting him to the world as a "celebrity". If the MMA media and industry turned their backs on this guy after his prison stints and career as a prostitute then this wouldn't even be a story.

The media needs to take care in who they empower...

Thanks.

Yes, I hear you.  I learned some lessons along the way.  And now I am done with that.

It was an interesting, fun interview and you had no way of knowing this would happen. Haulport, go protest the Pro Football Hall of Fame for having OJ in it and leave this one alone Phone Post 3.0

What about the media's role in making Mike Tyson this cuddly guy who was funny in 'The Hangover'?

Prison? Check.

Assault against women violently? Check. Robin Givens face.

Whether you believe he really raped Desiree or it was some crazy Don King conspiracy; she was torn and bruised and he did jail time.

Yet Tyson gets treated like some sort of all around great guy because he was exciting during an awful era of heavyweights and generated a ton of PPV buys.

War Machine never was Tyson in terms of talent or success.

But their propensity for street violence and violence against women?

Eerily similar.

Both men talked about dying, about killing others and both were similarly considered guys you'd rather not want to bother in a street.

Yet Tyson gets loved by the same people acting shocked by War Machine.

Pure hypocrisy.

Tyson should not be lauded as this cuddly kind guy for photo opps any more than Jack having done this interview when most thought War was scum.

The media totally is at fault for always painting awful guys great because of exploits in their sport or their ability to generate attention. Phone Post 3.0

In Tyson's case, I think that there is a lot that we have looked past in favor of the magnitude of his boxing accomplishments and his celebrity. In WM's case his infamy was always a significant part of our interest. But this incident, according to what is alleged, goes way beyond what WM was previously arrested and incarcerated for. Maybe you saw it coming. I didn't. Shame on me. Phone Post 3.0
