Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Friday, June 11, 2004

I just got through watching Nightline on ABC. I was expecting some kind of tribute to President Reagan. While this was the "professed" topic of the show, Ted Koppel and his late night production just couldn't refrain from getting on the anti-Bush soapbox.

You see, Koppel was interviewing former Soviet leader Mikhael Gorbachev. Gorbachev was waxing nostalgic about the Reagan presidency, being as complimentary as ever. "A wonderful human being", he said. It was a nice, and not unexpected refrain from the former leader of the Communist world. Yet, inexplicably, Koppel prods Gorbachev into a totally irrelevant rant about the present American administration and its willingness to impose democracy upon countries that may not wish for it.

I thought for one second that the networks, even Koppel's drivelfest, could stay focused on the events of the day (Reagan's memorial), and not their own political agenda (disparaging Bush's foreign policy towards the Middle East). However, even the events of this week proved to be too little to have any effect. Tonight, I am reminded why I never watch Nightline, nor do I plan to do so again for some time.
