The Jonah Keri Podcast #29: Tim Marchman

Jonah Keri speaks freely with Deadspin Editor Tim Marchman about UFC’s long history of banning journalists, leading up to Ariel Helwani’s ban earlier this week (which has since been lifted); whether each league should have an association to advocate for journalists; the ethics of sitting on a story; controlling the message and UFC’s non-traditional arrangements with various media organizations; Hulk Hogan’s legal case against Gawker; what qualifies as newsworthy based on First Amendment case law; the utility of news sources like Gawker; getting stories wrong; Peter Thiel and the dangers of money interfering with journalism; the conflict inherent in media organizations holding rights to broadcast sports they also cover; the revelation that UFC has secretly been paying Helwani all along; and Tim’s Life Tip.
