So here’s a hypothetical… if the media came across a couple of sworn depositions from former employees of a tribal casino, alleging… oh… let’s say… loansharking, racketeering, profit skimming, prostitution, drugs, rape, illegal cigarette sales and other crimes… don’t you think the local media would be all over this scandal?
Damn right they would!
So why won’t they touch the allegations leveled at I-892’s biggest financial backer, the Great American Gaming Corporation?
Because they’re chicken shit.
I’ll give them a couple more days to prove that our local press cares enough about the First Amendment to exercise freedom of the press despite the risk of a frivolous Canadian libel suit.
And if they refuse to act, then it is time to force their hands.
Anybody interested in joining me in a fun little stunt, send me an email. I need about a dozen volunteers who can give me a couple hours in the middle of the day.
