SynopsisEditor's Notes:HBO's Last Week Tonight got laughs out of John Oliver's expose of corruption and high-level criminal behavior in soccer's world organization FIFA; in this Emmy-winning edition of Dan Rather Reports, it's made clear that the link between soccer and corruption is darker and deeper can be even darker and deeper. It connects the dots between South Africa's hosting of the World Cup … and human trafficking in the name of sex work designed to take advantage of the crowds and cash flowing around one of the world's biggest sporting events by selling young women to anyone with the money to pay for them. Raw and disconcerting, it's a story of how the mega-event sports spectacle of the World Cup creates ideal conditions for the worst of crimes. Synopsis: Emmy win for Outstanding Feature Story in a News Magazine. In the piece, a hidden camera captures human traffickers on film and nearly completed a purchase to acquire ten women for about $400.00 US dollars apiece.
