Skip to comments.ABC's 'Nightline' Skipped ObamaCare for 123 Days, Gossips Over 'Bootleg Butt Injections'

How do the journalists at Nightline define news? On Monday night, co-host Dan Harris and reporter Mariana van Zeller spent an astonishing nine minutes and 33 seconds on the salacious, gossipy phenomenon of "bootleg butt injections." Yet, it's been 123 days, 17 and a half weeks, since the show's hosts have focused on ObamaCare and the problems with the law's implementation.
Harris educated his audience: "In the iconic rap song, Baby Got Back, Sir-Mix-A-Lot professes his love for women with large rear ends." He continued, "Since that song came out in 1992, the world's obsession with plus-size backsides has only intensified..." Yes, the once-prestigious Nightline investigated why some women "are risking it all on bootleg butt injections." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
Journalist van Zeller traveled to Caracas, Venezuela, noting, "We're looking for a doctor who runs a backroom butt clinic out of his apartment."
The reporter proceeded to spend almost ten minutes on butts, why women opt for larger rear ends and why men notice them. The show's journalists attempted to attach a "serious" angle to this story, the health risks associated with excess butt surgeries and injections.
However, the lengthy story also featured repeated shots of female backsides.
In contrast, Nightline has demonstrated little interest for the myriad problems facing ObamaCare. It was way back on November 14, 2013 that Harris discussed the "epic failures" of the health care law. On that date, he could only manage two minutes on it.
After all, ObamaCare's impact on America doesn't rise to the level of "bootleg butts."
More recently, the program, which began in 1980 as a way of keeping Americans up to date on the Iranian hostage crisis, profiled rapper Lil' Poopy and showcased the saving power of threesome orgies.
Whatever crap they pull out of their ass to destroy Conservatives and traditional values.
I had no idea either that Nightline was still on because I haven’t watched ABC in 20 years or so.
When you look at the big-three and CNN....you kinda note that none of them are making much on commercial advertising. Unlike the glory days of the 1980s and 1990s....I suspect that if you went to the top dozen news journalists of ABC....they’d all admit that they haven’t had much of a payraise in five years minimum....and have slide their lofty goals down several notches.
They may all make jokes about what companies advertise on Fox News....but at least they have a cash flow situation, and hire a fair number of the folks cast off from the regular networks.
60 minutes is the same. When Republicans are president then the media start investigating alleged scandals
“theyd all admit that they havent had much of a payraise in five years minimum....and have slide their lofty goals down several notches.”
I’m sure they understand by now that due to technology and the choices it offers people, they could either close up shop like the buggy-whip makers or become the whores of the Democratic Party; they chose the latter.
They tried to do a conservative show a few months ago, but it blew up in their face. If they want to do a conservative show, then 60 minutes needs to ensure that they do it factual and accurately. I don’t know what it was about but I do know they had to apologize. What good is it when the news does a show about conservatives but don’t get the facts right.
Nightline was too busy kissing Obama’s butt to notice what was happening to the American people. Shame on them.
If someone put me in charge of 'presenting liberal' news for liberals I would do a show on the joys and fun of abortion - since that seems the only issue that unites all liberals... I suspect in spite of their passion on the subject that I might not 'get it right'...
LOL - yep... gotta follow that leader...
I’m still waiting for Ted Koppel to read the names of all of the U.S. military personnel who have been killed in Afghanistan since Obama became president.
