Yes, there are still some good segments, especially with Terry Moran. But the trash is there too. On the February 17th broadcast [transcript for sale here] the show began with an in-depth report on the rise of cellphone pornography. What classic lowbrow reporting. Alleged news as the pretext for letting millions of viewers listen to ring tones that consist of a porn star moaning.
Although there are millions of web sites devoted to porn, there are very few serious news shows left on network television. If Ted Koppel were still around, I don't think Ron Jeremy would be getting airtime on Nightline. (3) opinions -- Add your opinion
Or am I just burnishing the Koppel myth? It's not as if I watched Nightline all that often during Ted's 25 years.
Maybe when he wasn't reporting about the Middle East Koppel found time for porn stars.
I was a Koppel fan. He may be doing friedman type investigations on the discovery channel. Tits for them if the do it.
Hey, don't be dissin' Ron Jeremy. His existance was a ray of sunshine to many a young man: "If anyone that short, that ugly and that hairy can be a pornstar, there's hope for me yet!"Post a Comment
