[Update, 8/31 5:45 p.m.: The managing editor of the Review-Journal has responded to the allegations in this post. Read his response below.]
Plutocratic bologna Sheldon Adelson attempted to keep his purchase of the Las Vegas Review-Journal a secret. It was less than two months before it was reported that he had begun axing stories investigating the true cost of a publicly financed stadium to lure the Raiders to Vegas (a charge later denied by the newspaper’s interim editor). Adelson, you see, is the single largest investor in the recently unveiled stadium project.
