Nieman Reports;Summer2006, Vol. 60 Issue 2, p72
The article relates the author's experience in publishing stories about the Riverside Casino in Iowa. Several stories written about the casino include reports regarding the casino owner paying a consulting firm to convince locals to approve gambling, the casino being a disaster, that revenue allocated to education is little and that incidence of bankruptcy, divorce and domestic abuse will increase in rural communities caused by the opening of a casino. The author believes that reporting is possible when publishers are willing to print stories.
