How to contact 60 Minutes IMMEDIATELY

On Sunday 60 Minutes is broadcasting a story about the UB/AP ripoff. The voice-over starts with the inaccurate claim that internet poker is flatly illegal in the US.

This could reduce the number of new players coming online.

There is time to get them to change this.

Call 60 Minutes RIGHT NOW.

PHONE: (212) 975-3247

EMAIL: 60m@cbsnews.com


Here are some links to give them, or find your own.

MOVE!

LOL what a waste of time Do you think they care. Anyone who watches this story that thought of playing will not play weather or not that comment is there.

Plus there to believe your links from sites that support gambling.

Re: How to contact 60 Minutes IMMEDIATELY

What I took from the statement was that the "Industry" was ilegal in the US, Although I had to listen to it twice to make sure as the first time I was upset thinking they were implying that online poker was ilegal.

I dont think that the general public will pick up on that and they will assume that online poker is ilegal.

Re: How to contact 60 Minutes IMMEDIATELY

This being on 60 mins is the way to over worried about. If anything I see this story as a way to maybe get the goverment to step in and regulate it, like most the poker community wants. Which will increase the number of players and creditable sites to play on.

"Though such gambling is illegal in both Canada and the U.S., the betting laws in those countries have no jurisdiction on the sovereign reservation."

Lols. They spent 4 months researching their story to come up with that crap?

seems this actually could work, unlike all the emails and phone calls to goverment reps tht obv had no chance of ever doing a damn thing.

i actually thought about doing this for about 5 seconds whereas i just immediately dismissed the lol uigea contacts.

i also find it funny that the ppl with the most to risk are no where to be found. hey jokerstars? he ftp? wtf are you doing with the billions in rake you are siphoning from the community if you arent even making a token effort to protect your interests?

the incompetence of this entire industry is mindboggling.
