Sheldon Adelson Talks With Charlie Rose

Posted by Hunter

Thanks to reader Tom M., I was reminded that tonight on Charlie Rose (PBS 11:30pm PT), we've got Sheldon Adelson talking about Cotai, Macau, Las Vegas and being #3.

Charlie Rose is, in my opinion, one of the most interesting interviewers out there. I love the show and I'm sure this will be an interesting one. Too bad it's not Adelson for the hour - we also get some time with new James Bond, Daniel Craig.

Thanks, Hunter. I didn't miss it. It's on at 3PM Friday in Miami. I'll tape it tomorrow.

Very nice. Can't wait to see it.

Charlie Rose is awesome. He's also one of Steve Wynn's good friends; I'm sure the topic of the rivalry will come up. Should be interesting.

Fantastic interview. It's refreshing to see him in the public eye more often.

I may be over-analyzing, but the interview was a bit awkward at the start and climaxed when (just as I predicted) Rose brought up the rivalry. Adelson seemed to dodge it at first, but when that discussion was over, both him and Rose were much more at ease.

Adelson said he's not in competition with Wynn crediting that Steve is one of the best designers while he is strictly a businessman. That certainly doesn't make me eager to stay at his resorts, but I do admire the fact that he's honest.

It was unkown to me that he founded a charity. This interview has raised my level of respect for him as a person and businessman.
