I’ve give anything to be able to personally report on the upcoming federal HOA trial in Las Vegas. The whole nation should be abuzz with this story about racketeering and Homeowners Associations. But few people outside of Nevada have actually heard of it. The networks simply aren’t covering it.
But reporters and columnists for the Las Vegas Review Journal are doing a great job ferreting out the weasles. The column linked below shows some pretty fascinating ties between a well-known mob drug trafficker and the HOA business.
Very nice piece on bringing two articles together. What does it take to get the NY TIME or LA times or the BBC to report?
Hi Bob. These days, I don’t know because journalism in general is in a state of collapse. Even the hallowed Gray Lady is hiring high school kids to be reporters and the times is now owned by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim who has a totally different agenda. But constant pressure is about all you do to try to get someone’s attention. Then don’t expect them to follow up, because that, too, is a dead art in journalism.
