Zuckerman: 'Family betting' would save hundreds of U.S. newspapers


"If you look at England, a lot of their newspapers have Bingo and kinds of just family betting," New York Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman says near the end of his Q-and-A with Steve Forbes. "It would save hundreds of newspapers in this country if they could do that. And somehow or other, people ought to give them the chance to do it, because the people in Vegas do it in, shall we say, not in the best national interest. There's no first amendment for gambling."
