Description

2004 IRE National Conference (Atlanta) Show and Tell Tape #2 features the following stories: 1)Randy Travis (WAGA-Atlanta) Modeling company Options Talent Group placed photos on their Web site and claimed their services would help clients become models for $500 a month, but agencies rarely took models from Options. 2)Darcy Spears (KVBC-Las Vegas) This hidden camera investigation into government found employees slacking on taxpayers' money by taking too long, and too many smoke breaks. 3)Mark Greenblatt (WBBH-Ft. Meyers) This investigation exposes a pet cemetery, widely used by veterinarians in the area. The cemetery does not fulfill its promises of dignified pet burials, and leaves dead animals exposed above the ground. 4)David Schechter (WCCO-Minneapolis) Profits from reservation casino gambling have garnered millions for certain tribes. Despite this, some Native Americans are left tribeless and living in poverty. 5)Steve Chamraz (KCTV-Kansas City) The investigation found Kansas City police aren't effectively tracking Internet predators, and lack computer resources to catch up. 6)Angie Moreschi (WTHR-Indianapolis) Indiana Social Services failed to research one family, resulting in a father with a history of abuse, who beat his child to death.
