Frankly, we live in a world of victims, and Fleury is simply a man who falls in one of these categories. The fact that a journalist can not publish a critical article on a man that devote his life to be as much in the public spotlight as possible, is plenty hypocritical in itself.

Again, I'm not saying it's his fault that he was abused. So don't go there.
Well said. Hickey is a fair and balanced writer, I suspect he wrote this to gently expose Fleury's use of victim science to earn a living.
