By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. - Boxing CEO for Golden Boy Promotions, Richard Schaefer recently gave his views on the criticism he has read (or heard) regarding Adrien Broner.  Broner a Golden Boy fighter, is coming off his latest victory over Vicente Escobedo in which he won with a 5th round tko..

Speaking to Ring TV  regarding criticism over Broner, Schaefer laid some of the blame on rival promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank.  Schaefer, told the publication:  "What's troubling is that some media members are being manipulated by Bob Arum, and the sad thing is that some of the people at HBO are falling into that trap. People like Michael Lombardo and Richard Plepler are not seeing through what's going on, and it's unfortunate."

Scahefer went on to add: "All of these other promoters who are talking sh!t, and who are using certain media members, they're just idiots. And what it shows you is that these media members who have 10,000 followers or less on Twitter, that they are totally insignificant. It is unfortunate that smart people like some of the HBO brass are following these -- I can't even call them journalists -- these bloggers and are being influenced by that, it is pretty darned sad."

Well that is a little harsh.  I mean calling writers insignificant is not a good thing to do. However I personally like Schaefer (at least he is interesting to read) and can understand to an extent where he is coming from. Does he have a point though?  Yeah, I would say some of the boxing media outlets seem to be controlled by Boxing promoters. But let's be fair and disclose that these quotes from Schaefer were published by Ring TV, a publication owned by Golden Boy, to which as I stated above, Schaefer is the CEO.
