MEDIA ALERT: Charmaine on Squawk Box on CNBC Debating Online Gambling
Words are important. Especially in the selling of ideas; selling the intangibles in the marketing of public policy.
The Squawk Box on CNBC It is a swamp. Not a wetland.
It is a jungle. Not a rain-forest
It is abortion. Not a choice.
It is gambling. Not gaming.
The last euphemism is the subject of Charmaine’s media appearance Tuesday, 23 October.
Tomorrow, Charmaine will be debating the wisdom of legalizing online poker on the CNBC business news program “Squawk Box” with Carl Quintanilla, Joe Kernen and Trish Reagan (filling in for Becky Quick).
Hit time is scheduled for 7:15am ET. It will be live. In the morning…
The second guest will be professional poker player Howard Lederer.
If you are up or can TiVo, please watch and let us know what you think.
Listen close: Lederer will say “gaming.” Yoest will say “gambling.”
