1999 IRE National Conference (Kansas City) Show and Tell Tape #7 is the seventh of a nine-part series. This tape includes: 1.) Tony Dastoli (WAGA-Atlanta) Telemarketers lying to school principals. 2.) Allison Gilbert (WWOR-UPN New York City) Pets in airplane cargo holds. 3.) Larry Yellen (WFLD-Chicago) Illegal gun sales. Guns cross county lines from suburb to city. 4.) Kathleen Johnston (WTHR-Indianapolis) "Guarding the Guardians" Millionaire heiress, Ruth Lilly, and the money being spent by her so-called caretakers. A case of fortune swindling. 5.) Dan McDonald (WBTF-?) Investigation shows how easy it is for minors to buy shotgun ammunition. Store clerks are supposed to check ID's, but only one place does it. 6.) Matthew McClure (CBC-Edmonton) ***only 5 minutes of a much longer piece*** Major restaurant chain fails to pay employees during so-called "training shifts," even though they are clearly doing all the jobs of a regular shift. 7.) Joel Grover (KCBS-Los Angeles) "Dirty Restaurants Revisited" Station uncovers inspectors bribing restaurant owners to get an A rating. The ratings system was inspired by last summer's dirty restaurant investigation.
