CNBC to Air Internet Gambling Report

December 16, 2009 (CAP Newswire) – Tonight (Wednesday night in U.S. time), the news network CNBC is scheduled to air a special report on the issue of Internet gambling.

It’s no surprise; the topic has gotten a lot of renewed interest in recent weeks thanks to the postponement of the UIGEA rules and the recent congressional hearings initiated by pro-online gambling advocate Barney Frank.

Still, the story is likely to be fairly critical of the industry; a common stance taken among the U.S. media. “Illegal gambling may conjure images of mobsters, bookies, and threats of violence … but while that underground world still exists, technology has made illegal gambling much more accessible,” CNBC states on its website.
