I don't often talk about other news organizations on here for the simple fact that I represent PokerJunkie in these blogs. However, I feel compelled to speak on the recent revelation that PokerNews was banned from covering the Mid-Stakes Poker Tour event at the Venetian in Las Vegas. The reason? PokerNews supports online poker. At first I thought this might be a bit of a misunderstanding or misinformation given to the reporting site, but Nolan Dalla confirmed with the site that the ban indeed happened.
