Still No ’60 Minutes’
October 23, 2008 (InfoPowa News) – Poker fans looking forward to the reported expose of poker scandals on the popular investigative television program "60 Minutes" will have to be patient for a little longer. Reports this week suggest that the scheduled screening for October 26 has been delayed.
Although no official information has been made available, the speculation is that November 9 may be the new date, but with the economic crisis and presidential elections currently capturing the public imagination, even this date could be re-scheduled. On the other hand, there would be few more topical slots than November, which sees the final table of the 2008 World Series of Poker playing out to extensive television coverage of big money, big poker and big personalities.
Poker News reports that among those industry people interviewed for the program are Mike Sexton, Greg Raymer, Linda Johnson, Gary Wise, together with online poker-forum detectives Serge Ravitch, Michael Josem and Todd Witteles, who were involved in aspects of a player investigation into unusual circumstances at UltimateBet and Absolute Poker.
Poker News also advises that the Washington Post will publish a detailed piece on online poker, possibly accompanied by a call for regulation, on November 9th.
