"60 Minutes Sports" on Showtime last night aired an interview with John Alite, marking the former gangster's first interview since finishing an eight-year prison sentence for racketeering two years ago.
Alite had climbed high in the mob before deciding to flip for the feds and become their "star witness" against John Gotti Junior in a 2009 trial that ended with a hung jury.
Alite had been keeping a low profile since getting out of prison.
"60 Minutes" focused Alite's interview on sports betting, a hot political issue in New Jersey, but also included some of the highlights of his career on the street, limiting its scope to the turncoat's doings in the New York area, where he worked under the Gottis. But he also was quite active in the criminal underworld in Tampa, Fla., working under fellow New Yorker Ronald "Ronnie One Arm" Trucchio.
The truth is, there was not much meat on the program, but interesting details. At the end of this story we fill in some of the gaps that 60 minutes overlooked.

American Vernacular takes aim at the hypocrisy of Facebook and its less-than-rightful owner, Mark Zuckerberg, the company's support of right-wing social and political agendas, its insidious suppression of 1st amendment rights according to its code of decency and outsourced content control, and why Facebook has become the most sophisticated weapon for the killing free speech and expression in American politics while dismantling the fundamental ideals of the US Constitution. Can money be allowed to buy that?
This is your chance to challenge the idea and meaning of social media and why the timing might be perfect for Google+ to become serious competition for those seeking an alternative for social and political expression. Tune in and join the conversation at (619) 768-2924.
