  • Longtime anchor Ted Koppel talks state of American journalism

    In the late 1960s, when Ted Koppel covered the Vietnam War as ABC News’ war correspondent, he would ship his film by air back to the network’s New York studios, a journey that took two to three days. By 2003, when he began covering the Iraq War, Koppel could broadcast from the desert, bringing news to his viewers the same day it happened. Now, Koppel said Wednesday in a lecture at Trinity University, half the American public gets its news immediately on Facebook. “What social media does is give all of us the opportunity to say anything at any time...

    As a long-time news analyst, I find it refreshing that at least some professors are taking the rise of conservative journalism seriously and treating it as a subject to be studied. In a "Call for Book Chapters on Conservative News," professors Anthony M. Nadler and A.J. Bauer are calling on academics and others to contribute essays on the growth and influence of conservative news and opinion outlets. "Conservative news has become a tremendously powerful platform in the United States, wielding a vast influence on the terms of political discourse," they note. Nadler is an Assistant Professor of Media and Communication...
  • Jedediah Bila Defends Former Employer Fox News on The View: 'Do You Know How Many People Watch?'

    On The View today, the women discussed CBS’s Ted Koppel telling Fox News’s Sean Hannity he’s bad for America. “I actually do think he’s good for America in the same way that I think Rachel Maddow is good for America, Bill Maher is good for America,” said former Fox employee Jedediah Bila. “The more opinions the better, and that doesn’t mean that I’m going to watch him and I’m going to agree and I’m going to form my opinions based on what he’s saying…” Whoopi Goldberg said she doesn’t think Hannity uses many facts on his show and asked if...

    * Ted Koppel interviewed Sean Hannnity on CBS show 'Sunday Morning' * On the show, Hannity asked Koppel: 'You think I'm bad for America?' * Koppel said 'yes' and elaborated: 'You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts' Koppel added: 'You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts.' Hannity said that Koppel's rebuke was 'sad.' On the television program, Hannity also said that 'liberalism has to be defeated' and said that 'angry snowflakes, a 'Democratic establishment' and 'the press in this country' are all obstacles. * Hannity later...
  • SEAN HANNITY Stands Up For His Rights With CBS And Ted Koppel Interview!

    Mainstream Media has truly declared war on those of us who do not watch and agree with them. Sean Hannity of FOX NEWS was interviewed by Ted Koppel of CBS. But instead of playing the whole interview straight through, they hacked it up, leaving out essential parts. They made the interview to express what they wanted it to express. Hannity has thus asked them to play the unedited version straight through, and he is rightfully angry at their manipulation. “Why did Ted cut out my many examples of media bias?,” Hannity asked on Twitter. He’s also asking CBS News release...

    In a report that aired on CBS’ “Sunday Morning” about the polarization of politics and the media in the Age of Trump, “Sunday Morning” special contributor Ted Koppel charged Fox News host Sean Hannity with contributing to the increased antipathy toward opposing viewpoints that is prevalent in America. Hannity made no qualms about presenting his own conservative agenda, but objected to Koppel characterizing his viewers as not being able to discriminate editorial content from news. “We have to give some credit to the American people that they’re somewhat intelligent and that they know the difference between an opinion show and...
  • Lights Out: Has Ted Koppel Become a 'Rightwing' Survivalist?

    NewsBusters ^ | November 3, 2015 | P.J. Gladnick
    Remember when, not so long ago, much of the Mainstream Media was mocking people who stocked up on emergency supplies ("preppers") in case of a catastrophe as a bunch of "rightwing" survivalist kooks wearing tinfoil hats? Well, it now appears that Ted Koppel is wearing a tinfoil hat because he is warning about a possible apocalyptic catastrophe that could knock out the nation's power grid for up to two years and is recommending that people stock up on emergency supplies. Such recommendations are made in his recently published book, Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath. We shall...

    If a giant solar flare hit the Earth, it could knock out the entire power grid, meaning no more new Taylor Swift singles, no more televised presidential debates, and no more Facebook photos of babies. But it wouldn't be all good news. The Washington Postreports the elecromagnetic pulse—or EMP—created by such an event could wipe out electricity for months on end, creating a global catastrophe. That's why the White House released its National Space Weather Strategy on Thursday. According to the Houston Chronicle, the multiagency plan details how the US will prepare for—and deal with—a massive EMP from space. The six-step plan requires government...

    ...A 'Curse' on America In an interview with Rolling Stone, HBO host Bryant Gumbel was asked about the National Rifle Association and a segment he did on his Real Sports show about the "Eat what you kill" movement. There are a few things I hate more than the NRA. I mean truly. I think they're pigs. I think they don't care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape. So we got that on the record. That said, I'm willing to separate that this story had nothing to do with that. It's not a gun...

    Last week on Meet the Press, it was NBC News' Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel slamming the Obama administration's "diminished",foreign policy influence around the globe.Today on Meet the Press, two veteran Washington newsmen, The Washington Post's Bob Woodward and former ABC, now NBC News correspondent Ted Koppel, matter of factly described the present foreign policy environment as being in "meltdown" and entering "one of the most dangerous" periods in U.S. history. Their remarks were made without directly blaming President Barack Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but they were made in response to a question pointing out Obama's...

    I’ve discussed previously that part of the left’s disinfo/propaganda campaign has been to rehabilitate the utterly failed presidency of Jimmy Carter, and, whenever possible, distort and minimize the accomplishments of Ronald Reagan. That effort continues, as Gateway Pundit discussed this nonsense from Ted Koppel from a few days ago.

    Ted Koppel on Sunday published an op-ed at the Washington Post wherein he claimed that opinionated television personalities like MSNBC's Keith Olbermann represent the death of real news. The "Countdown" host apparently isn't taking this lying down for he tweeted the following Sunday evening: FYI Special Comment tomorrow night: Koppel, False Equivalence, and his part in the real "death of news" [sic] Here's what's caught Olbermann's ire this time: To witness Keith Olbermann - the most opinionated among MSNBC's left-leaning, Fox-baiting, money-generating hosts - suspended even briefly last week for making financial contributions to Democratic political candidates seemed like a...

    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...
  • Ted Koppel Says U.S. "Overreaction" to Attempted Terror Attack a "Victory for Al-Qaeda" - Video

    Here is video of former Nightline Anchor Ted Koppel telling the BBC that the attempted terror attack on Christmas Day has been an "absolute triumph for Al-Qaeda." Koppel believes there has been a terrible "over-reaction" to the attempt, which is exactly what Al-Qaeda wants. Koppel said Obama's initial reaction to low-key it following the attack "was the right one." But Koppel said Obama was pushed into a stronger reaction by media and public expectations. Koppel's comments are clearly his way of trying to defend Obama's initial reaction to the attempted attack and help him to fend off criticism. Somehow I...
  • Koppel 'Hurts' for Rather 'Travesty'

    From the birds-of-a-feather department comes news that former ABC "Nightline" host Ted Koppel is "hurting" for former CBS anchor Dan Rather. The latter's ouster was a "travesty," Koppel said, on account of the fact that Rather's infamous National Guard story was "much more correct than incorrect." More: “Dan Rather was squeezed out” with such little class from CBS News, Mr. Koppel said today at a forum at Fordham University in New York City that was put on by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The academy tonight presents its annual News and Documentary Emmys. During this evening’s ceremony,...

    The western world has had to deal with violent jihad by Muslims for more than a thousand years. After the defeats of Muslim armies in Spain centuries earlier, and of the Ottoman Empire during World War I, the west largely relaxed regarding that particular threat. The combination of billions of petrodollars with the acquisition and near acquisition of weapons of mass destruction (including nuclear weapons) together with the atrocity of September 11 completely changed the equation and the rules. It is a fact of life that grownups have to deal with the potential of these threats – and also deal...

    by Mark Finkelstein September 8, 2006 - 07:58 We're all familiar with this definition of a conservative: "a liberal who's just been mugged." This morning, Ted Koppel devised a variation on the theme that could be taken as an insult to his fellow lefties: "a liberal is a conservative who just got arrested." Koppel's line came in the course of a Today show interview with Matt Lauer to discuss a special that Koppel is about to air in his role as Managing Editor of the Discovery Channel [so that's where he went after leaving ABC!]. As Lauer described it, the...
  • Ted Koppel in 'NYT': Iraq for U.S. Is 'About the Oil'

    02/24/2006 5:35:01 AM PST · by GeneD · 50 replies · 1,140+ views
    In a surprisingly strong Op Ed on Friday, Ted Koppel, the former "Nightline" host who is now an occasional columnist for The New York Times, argues that when it comes right down to it, the U.S. adventure in Iraq is, as some charge, "about the oil." He likened the situation to H.L. Mencken's statement that when someone says something is "not about the money" it is indeed "about the money." The same is true in this case relating to oil. While it's wrong to say that we invaded the country to take over its oil supply, Koppel writes in the...
