Shana Hiatt, Bad for Poker

No doubt that NBC did not hire Shana Hiatt for her brains but I would have never guessed that her lack of intellectual capacity could have cast the kind of blow to poker that she did Sunday. During the telecast of NBC Sports Special National Heads-Up Poker Championship, Shana goes to interview the legendary Doyle Brunson who is setting is the stands. She asks Doyle why he is a spectator and not playing in the match. Doyles response was that "for the first time in 50 years I have lost my passion for poker. Ever since the passage of the UIGEA and the way congress pa..." That's right, Shana cut him off in mid speech. She totally changed the subject. I have to say I was and still am, unbelievably pissed. I wanted to reach through the screen and choke the bitch.

One of the biggest problems facing online poker and the efforts to overturn the UIGEA is a lack of information by average Americans as to exactly what congress did to our freedoms when they piggy backed this bullshit legislation onto a very important ports security bill. It was and still is an atrocity to the democratic process and was never brought to light in the main stream media. If it's not some fucking lunatic mass murdering wack job or a blond blombshell's drugged out behavior resulting in her own death. The so called "news channels" won't give it any attention, it's not "entertaining enough". Then when there is an opportunity to bring light to the subject in front of a major audience, what happens. Shanna Hiatt can't stick a sock in it long enough to let Doyle speak his mind. Shanna, go back to doing something your good at, posing nude with your mouth shut.
