When Las Vegas-based freelance writer Steve Friess interviewed Las Vegas Sands boss Sheldon Adelson Friday for an upcoming New York Times story on the opening of the company’s Bethlehem, Pa., casino, he received a blast from the mercurial gaming mogul.
On his Vegashappenshere.com blog Friess writes, “I asked Adelson whether he would have done anything differently in the past year or so and this was his wallop of an answer:
"Would I have done anything different? Yes, I would’ve fired Bill Weidner a long time ago. He created a financing situation that was completely inappropriate. Now we’re getting financing that’s more appropriate.”
It gets juicier from there.
I wonder what Weidner thinks of that?
