I guess ESPN is next

Joe reports that Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo have to shell out megabucks to settle a suit that they promoted gambling. And by promote, they mean sold ads too companies that offer online gambling. Ya know, I watched the World Series of Poker on ESPN and every commercial break had an ad for an online gaming site.

    I’m confused. If what they did was illegal, they should pay up; but nowhere in the article does it say what law(s) they allegedly violated.

    As for Joe’s gripe about constitutionality, if nationwide advertising doesn’t constitute interstate commerce, then I don’t know what does…

    Well, ads are displayed to any reader any where in the world. So, if a guy from Canada sees it, it’s not illegal. I think the law they’re allegedly violating is ‘promoting gambling’ which sounds made up to me.

    Every time I’ve paid attention to one of those TV ads, they’ve always claimed that you’re not playing for money or prizes, which would make them legal, if true.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
