60 Minutes aired its online poker cheating story last night. Some initial thoughts:
- Could’ve been worse.
- Especially when Steve Kroft started it off by saying that you can simply access an on site by logging on to the “world wide web…” At least he didn’t go with “Information SuperhighwayTM.”
- Come on, Todd. You could’ve at least told them to refer to you as Todd “Dan Druff” Witteles. Nice NWP representing nonetheless.
- The Kahnawake Gaming Commission is absolutely useless.
- The fact that no criminal action has been brought against Russ Hamilton is disgusting.
We’re currently working on a major Russ Hamilton story, and like 60 Minutes, tried contacting him about a month ago and had similar results. We know of a few big name pros who Hamilton personally stole money from through a super-user account. The dude is a slimeball.
