Nightline was born 30 years ago, developed out of a nightly update by Ted Koppel on the Iranian Hostage Crisis. If not for the Iranian Revolution, Nightline would not exist.
So you'd think that, with Iran exploding, this would dominate at least Monday night's program.
Actually, no! Instead, though they had a teaser about Iran at the start of the show, they devoted over 20 minutes of a half-hour show to Suze Orman, a segment that could have been broadcast on any night. So the show is all about Orman, no Iran at all. Except a brief mention just before the sign-off.
This show calls itself Nightline. But it's just wearing its skin. But then, the way the entire MSM has only given, at best, token mention to this, probably the most important story in the world, is shameful, and more proof why they need to be replaced with something that actually tells the truth, and doesn't waste our time with "lifestyle" news.
It's certainly an example of why ABC's news department has devolved into something totally worthless.
Meanwhile, the Daily Show led with it and even have Jason Jones in Tehran. No, really, they do, and he curses that it isn't greenscreen. I assume they weren't expecting this. But they can boast of having something most of the networks don't: a correspondent in Iran.
