Where Is Ned Day When We Need Him?

Recommended Posts

Ned is dead because he seriously investigated Las Vegas Crime. Ned was the last of the investigative reporters who could not be bought off. If Ned was alive Today, this Paddock mystery would be solved in no time.

I knew Ned well, he was my downstairs neighbor. I used to tease him, " Stop f**king with the Mob Ned, bombs go up and I'm going to be taken out because of your BS." The mob blew up his car in our apartment complex. My parking spot was next to Neds. The night they blew up his car, someone was parked in my spot and I had to park elsewhere. Good thing or my car would have been blown up too! After the bombing, one of our neighbors got bumper stickers printed that read , "This is NOT Ned Day's car" which many of us put on our cars.

Im wondering where George Knapp is on this whole Stephen Paddock investigation. He is a host on Coast to Coast and totally into the alien thing but Ned was his mentor. Ned taught George how to investigate a story. George Knapp is most likely all over this Paddock story but will not report on it or comment because he knows what happened to his best friend and mentor when you go after the wrong people.

BTW..I will NEVER believe Ned died snorkeling in Hawaii...It was 100% a sophisticated mob hit.

AS VEGAS - This story originally aired on Sept. 3, 2007, which marked 20 years since Ned Day's death. 8 News NOW is posting the story again to honor Day 30 years after his passing.

Twenty years ago, Channel 8 viewers and the whole community were shocked and saddened to hear that journalist Ned Day had died while vacationing in Hawaii.

The muckraking reporter and columnist was a titan of Nevada news, a fearless crusader who stood up to the mob and the Las Vegas power structure. Along the way, he became a larger than life character whose presence is still felt two decades after his passing.

The I-Team's George Knapp, one of Ned's closest friends, looks back on those tumultuous times.

The happiest day of his life was when the mob firebombed his car, except for the fact his golf clubs were in the back and the Volvo wasn't insured. To Ned Day, this was proof that he was really getting under someone's skin. When the bumper stickers appeared days later, it was even better. Characteristically, Ned tweaked the noses of those responsible.

Hello George...Can we get a comment on the LV shooting? I know that you know...

 

The 30th anniversary of his death is next week on Sept. 3.

Day and his KLAS-TV colleague and friend George Knapp were part of a cadre of hard-nosed mob reporters operating in the tough tradition of investigative journalists Ed Reid and Ovid Demaris, whose 1960s true crime book, “The Green Felt Jungle,” pulled back the curtain on corruption, vice and mob rule in Las Vegas.

Day’s 1980s documentary “The Mob on the Run” is still considered vital viewing for those wanting to understand the Mafia’s influence in Las Vegas. You can watch it by clicking here.

Now Knapp is one of only a few reporters still working in Las Vegas who covered the mob when wiseguys were as common in Southern Nevada as poker chips.

In addition to his television reporting, which has included retrospectives on the Las Vegas mob, Knapp also sometimes interviews Mafia figures and organized-crime writers in his role as occasional Sunday night host of the national overnight radio talk show Coast to Coast AM.

They killed off all the real investigate reporters years ago.

Ned was the first in my world to go and Breitbart was the last. No more real news reporting. Don't believe anything you read.

All news is now agenda driven in 2017.The truth no longer matters.

We live in a world of lies.

When I grew up, I was taught that Lies would lead to a life in Hell.

Now Lies lead to a huge following on Facebook!

Lines used to be blurred between right and wrong...now lines don't exist.

Sad world we live in where people who reported the truth were killed off to advance the agenda of the evil ones.

Back in the day most newspaper's and television stations had an investigative reporter. Then almost overnight they were gone. It would be the greatest thing ever if somehow we could reestablish those positions.

Ned didn't need a gun...his typewriter was the most powerful weapon on the face of the planet.

A lot of what we know about the mob in Las Vegas the late 1970s, he uncovered or reported on … the skimming at the Tropicana … mob involvement in hotel-casinos like the Aladdin and the Dunes … and the cast of characters on whom the movie Casino was based: Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal, who ran the Stardust and Fremont, and Tony Spilotro, who was involved in the streets and various other activities. Day especially went after Spilotro, referring to him as a fireplug who walked like a man. In turn, somebody blew up Ned’s car. Ned was fine but his golf clubs were damaged, and his published response was that his assailants didn’t seem to understand that the real danger was his typewriter.
