Because the government provides them lots and lots of production assistance to do stories presenting government propaganda.

Of course they aren't. Even if the PPA accomplished exactly what they say they want to accomplish the current problem would still be right in your lap.
The PPA's goals are self-destructive. They want a carve out for poker. They want to seperate poker's interest from other online gambling interests.
But all of the current problems impacting poker players are becuase of the government war against online sports books. All of the current problems.
And the PPA wants to support the governments efforts to screw them. The result is of course that poker players will just get screwed as collateral damage.
The PPA is not your friend.
