Ted on arrival: Koeppel's first NYT column dances around the truth

Former Nightline anchor Ted Koeppel has written his first regular column for the New York Times. For those who don’t want to actually pay for it, here’s a good synopsis.

What it boils down to is this: continued mainstream media refusal to open their eyes and see the light of why the likes of FOX News is gaining, and network news continues to lose viewers.

“The accusation that television news has a political agenda misses the point. Right now, the main agenda is to give people what they want. It is not partisanship but profitability that shapes what you see.”

It’s incredibly comforting to know that a liberal agenda isn’t A) what people want, and B) profitable.

Thanks, Ted. You’ve made my Sunday.
