Last week an article was published by Newsweek, which many online publications, blogs and online gambling businesses has since slammed for being a biased piece that was full of inaccuracies about the online gambling business.
The article paints online poker and gambling in a negative light, and casts doubts on the safety precautions that online sites have in place. The article writer; Leah McGrath Goodman believes that they will not be able to stop underage players from signing up to their site and that their geo-location technology will also not stop users outside their state playing at their site. However, she did not try the systems out for herself or talk to any experts in the industry regarding the technology.
Leah McGrath Goodman has strongly denied that her article was biased and politically motivated.
