  • ABC's Nightline Blasts 'Controversial' Nominee Before He’s Even Announced!

    The new Supreme Court pick is very “controversial,” whoever he or she turned out to be. That was the consensus of ABC’s Nightline. About 90 minutes before Donald Trump announced the name of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Nightline’s Twitter page blasted: Again, they didn’t have a name (or any news outlet for that matter), but this mysterious person was “controversial.” Later in the evening, the Nightline account weeted out a “correction” to explain what the network journalists meant to say: As the MRC’s Rich Noyes noted on Monday, networks routinely label “conservative” judges and skimp on “liberal” labels for Democratic nominees.
  • New Low: Katie Couric Chats Up Sex Robots Who Want to ‘Make Love’ to Her ‘Hot Body(LOLOLOL!)

    What has happened to Katie Couric’s career? On Tuesday’s Nightline, she was reduced to “interviewing” sex robots who want to “make love” to her “sexy ass.” Though Couric occasionally questioned the moral cesspool that is the coming sex robot industry, the segment was mostly a promotional for it. While chatting with “Harmony,” she listens as the sex robot tells her: “I like books, computers, making new friends. I also love making love to you.” “Harmony” continued: “I want to be your best friend and much more.” The former anchor of the CBS Evening News responded: “Maybe not the much more...
  • 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...

  • Cheap Shot: ABC Invokes Sarah Palin in Story on Violent Little League Coaches

    ABC's David Wright is obsessed with Sarah Palin. The Nightline correspondent on Wednesday gratuitously attacked the former vice presidential candidate in a segment that has nothing to do with politics. Wright investigated angry, violent coaches of youth sports. After featuring clips of men encouraging third grade football players to hit each other in the head, Wright made an abrupt left turn into liberal bias: "That full-throated passion, part of the culture of sports in this country. Lampooned in movies like Kicking and Screaming and celebrated by the original hockey mom herself, Sarah Palin, in 2008." [See video below. MP3 audio...

    From Chicago to Rio, from Jamaica to Nigeria, gang violence is leaving an indelible mark on communities across the globe, leaving authorities at a loss for what to do about the epidemic of lawlessness among young men who see little hope in their futures. Certainly the global economic crisis has much to do with the rise in gang violence and influence, as young men of color in most of the affected countries see few options for gainful employment. In Chicago, among 400 murders that have occurred in 2012, an estimated 80 percent of them have been gang-related. The killing in...

    I was just watching an ABC News Nightline hit piece about Romney. They showed a campaign photo of Romney, but his teeth looked awful! I took a picture of my TV screen and then enlarged it on my PC. It is very obvious ABC used Photoshop to color his teeth a deep shade of yellow. You can see the "mask" clearly in the enlargement. Where can I send my copy of the broadcast so that the truth will be told?

    ABC’s Terry Moran was caught on-screen Sunday laughing as Barack Obama surrogate Martin O’Malley (D-Md.) bashed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. When the Nightline host filling in for This Week’s vacationing George Stephanopoulos realized he was on camera, he tempered his glee and put on a more serious face (video follows with transcript and commentary):

But as circumstances occurred, I'm outside of the system correcting it from outside of the system. ... I have friends within the system ...

    The son of legendary TV newsman Ted Koppel died early Monday after a night of drinking that ended in the seedy Manhattan apartment of a pub crawl acquaintance. Andrew Koppel, a 40-year-old attorney with the New York City Housing Authority with a history of alcohol problems, was declared dead around 1:30 a.m., according to the New York Post. Police sources told the newspaper Koppel had stumbled two and a half hours earlier into the Washington Heights apartment of Russell Wimberly, a waiter he had met 12 hours earlier in a Hell's Kitchen bar. A roommate of Wimberly, Belinda Caban, told...

    Scientology Spokesman Tommy Davis Leaves Interview in Anger The Church of Scientology is taking a beating today. First, former member Paul Haggis wrote a scathing letter renouncing the religion, and now a video of spokesman Tommy Davis walking out of an interview with Martin Bashir on 'Nightline,' is making the rounds on the Internet. Davis was offended when Bashir asked questions about the popular celebrity religion's beliefs. "Do you believe that the Galactic Emperor called Xenu brought his people to earth 75 million years ago and buried them in volcanoes?" Bashir asked. "Martin, I'm not going to discuss the disgusting...

    A Freeper's own Experience | August 6, 2009 | icwhatudo
    With all the talk about phony town halls and planted questions, I was reminded about my own experience with Nightline's Ted Koppel. It was 1995 and I first heard about ABC's Nightline coming to Towson State University (Maryland) from a friend who was a psychology major. "Nightline - Teen Sex: What'll We Tell the Kids" was the title of the event and former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders and Lou Sheldon of the Traditional Values Coalition were two of the main guests. I asked my friend how she got a ticket and she said only certain departments were handing them out...

    ABC's "Nightline" stretches its #1 late night ranking to four weeks - which hasn't happened since 1995. With 3.74 million Total Viewers Nightline beat CBS' "Late Show" and NBC's "The Tonight Show." All three shows were in original productions — no re-runs. "Nightline" also squeaked by Conan in A25-54 viewers with 1,473,000, to "The Tonight Show's" 1,466,000. Last week saw the lowest Total Viewer and A25-54 averages for "The Tonight Show" since the 1991/92 season. "Nightline" was up 21% versus the same week last year and is up 14% among Total Viewers and up 3% among A25-54 viewers, season-to-date. Show...

    LOL, OK, I haven't watched Nightline in years. But after waking up from a dose of sleep after a long day's work this evening, I was suddenly confronted with Nightline. Presenting the view of "many" in the media and society concerning the current presidency of Barack Obama, after the first 100 days. This "balanced" (my emphasis) survey of "well known personalities" (using Nightline's terms) of the American mindset included: Nancy Pelosi, Bill Mayer, Ali Wentworth, Paul Krugman, Arianna Huffington, Al Sharpton and Cokie Roberts with Jim Cramer, George Will, and Newt Gingrich barely sprinkled in to allow the word "balanced"...

    ABC's Nightline beat CBS' Late Show with David Letterman last week in both Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo — with the late night show back in original episodes. NBC's Tonight Show with Jay Leno was #1. All three shows declined week-to-week in the demo, with only Nightline down in Total Viewers.
