        It was "60 Minutes"  Basically it was about the lack of regulation for online gambling. 

        The focus was on your children obtaining your credit information & betting online--how easy it is to get into debt by betting online.

            Has CBS ever pointed out anything positive?

            Cheers

              You can find the video of the 60 minutes segment on the CBS news website.  It's basically a guy from a big UK sportsbook site saying that online gambling should be legalized in the USA, which would allow the USA government to rake in billions of dollars in tax revenue.  The guy seems very conceited (which I suppose comes from the fact that he is personally making millions of dollars from his gambling business).

              Leslie Stahl seems clueless, but there's nothing new about that.
