That paragraph really was weird. I'm not on McKay's (or Dennis', for that matter) side in this whole thing, but that's a personal opinion that should not reflect on neutral journalism. That whole paragraph seemed completely disconnected from the rest of the article, as if it's there for the sake of being there. The article is certainly not about the court case (not even close), so why bring it up out of the blue? Disgustingly manipulative indeed.
