I feel like the author is talking about how bad MVC is without fully understanding what MVC is.

MVC is usually done very badly. The View and the Controller are often smooshed together into an unholy mess.

But it can be done well. I think the author simply isn't very good at using the MVC pattern properly, which leads them to dislike it.

Nobody does anymore. The original pattern had an individual model, view and controller for each UI element in the window, now all frameworks I've seen that mention MVC are completely different.
