The reporters at the review journal appear to only write what Don Webb wants them to write about the Las Vegas Stadium
Mick Akers Accuses Social Media Giant VitalVegas.com of Spreading "False" News
LAS VEGAS, NV: Vital Vegas tweeted that the roof raising was delayed 80-100 days at the Raiders Stadium Mick Akers, a verified journalist from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, immediately responded by accusing Vital Vegas of spreading false news.
Mick's response to Vital Vegas resulted in battle between Vital and a number of online sports fanatics creating an online Twitter storm.
A few days later, Rick Velotta assured us that the roof raising had begun on October 7, 2019. This information came directly from Don Webb, the COO at Mortenson Construction and McCarthy Builders.
We have been to the site everyday since October 7th and we have not seen any evidence of any roof being raised.
This brings to question why was Mick Akers attempting to smear Vital Vegas' journalistic reputation?
The reason Vital Vegas gave for the delay was there were some parts or equipment stolen that required a 90 day lead time to replace. As a result, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police department now have patrol cars at each exit 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Mick Akers from the Las Vegas review Journal told Las Vegas Locally that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department were being paid for by the Las Vegas Raiders not the taxpayers.
This project is already $200 million over budget and no one can seem to get a straight answer from Don Webb. The journalists at the Las Vegas Review-Journal who are responsible for covering the stadium, appear to write only what Don Webb tells them to write.
The taxpayers of Clark County, Nevada need 4 issues addressed immediately:
Any reporters or journalists in Las Vegas who aren’t writing any interesting stories; you might want to jump on this one.
