    I've learned from APCW Perspectives Nov 10th edition (http://www.casinomeister.com/forums.../15059-battle-won-fight-gaming-continues.html ) that the news media didn't want to report on the Online Gaming Ban Protest until AFTER THE ELECTIONS!! The protest took place in Washington DC on Friday November 3rd, 4 days BEFORE the elections on November 7th. There were over 500 people that showed up for the protest. APCW specifically accused CNN and FOX News of this shady tactic.

    So I guess the news media don't want a fully informed voting populance in regards to the online gambling issue lest the voters kick ALL Republicans out, huh?

    It is hard to believe that the media would not report a story untill the election was over. Here is what Debbie Richards, the protest organizer said:

    Other than on several Casino boards, I did not see any references to this protest either on TV or on the Internet, even after the election.

    Do you have any links ????

    Surely Fox is centre-right (as opposed to CNN leaning left)

    Why would Fox have deliberately suppressed it?

    i doubt there was a conspiracy to not cover this event. even big media's resources are stretched that close to an election.

    it's great that they got 500 people, but the timing of that protest seems a bit odd to me.

    I agree. In fact I think (if it were not beyond their control for some reason) that they should have arranged this protest MONTHS ago.
