National Press Club Revolted by Saudi-Backed Golf Events

From a story on CNN’s Reliable Sources by Oliver Darcy:

“Let it Fail”

The LIV Golf event that is set to commence at Donald Trump’s Bedminster club on Friday is generating more controversy by the day. On Tuesday, the National Press Club added its voice to the mix, saying in a no-holds-barred statement that it is “revolted” by the forthcoming affair and hopes that it fails.

A quick recap for those who might need it: LIV is the Saudi-backed golf league that has upended the sport by challenging the PGA’s dominance. It has lured in athletes to participate in its events with huge paydays. But it has been the subject of significant controversy given that it is funded by the Saudis who have an atrocious record on human rights.
