The Punditocracy Gets Sharper on Linda McMahon

“Linda McMahon is hit with questions about the way she ran the family’s World Wrestling Entertainment, which employs more than 100 wrestlers who bang each other up in rings around the world, without the benefit of a company health plan. (McMahon claims the wrestlers do get seminars on shopping for insurance, and I think I speak for us all in saying that that is not the same thing.)” – Gail Collins, The New York Times,

“It is not possible to discuss WWE’s success without mentioning that it was achieved, literally, on the steroid-broadened backs of its entertainers. WWE wrestlers did great physical damage to themselves for years while the company declined to provide them health coverage.”Stamford Advocate editorial,
