The reason investors constantly lose their ass in Las Vegas is because one casino owns the local newspaper; the Las Vegas Sands.
The Review-Journal is a tool that has been used by the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce (now called the Vegas Chamber) since the 1930s. Anything favorable about Las Vegas is sent through the wire to be published by Yahoo! News and retweeted by the local bloggers. Anything unfavorable is squashed.
In 2015, Las Vegas took it one step further. The Nevada AG allowed Sheldon Adelson to purchase the Review-Journal . But he had to do it secretly. So his son-in-law, Patrick Dumont, travelled to Conneticut to set up a shell company under a fictitious name.
No one knew who really owned the Las Vegas Review-Journal until the investigative reporters from the Review-Journal spent 6 months uncovering the owner’s true identity: The Las Vegas Sands, which was owned by Sheldon Adelson. Sheldon responded by having all 3 reporters fired. Google it. It should be a movie.
