Could Ted Koppel be succumbing to the dark side?

There’s an old saying: “once could be an accident, twice a coincidence, but three times is a trend.”

Last week, Nightline ran a story on a Louisiana Democratic Congressman who, under the guise of “inspecting his district,” managed to recover a bunch of his personal property from his own home — in the process getting the National Guard’s truck stuck in the mud of his front yard and prompting the dispatch of a helicopter and another truck to rescue him and his escorts.

Then, Thursday night, after President Bush’s speech, Nightline sent a crew to the parking lot of Houston’s Astrodome to get the reactions of evacuees. And those evacuees, almost to a one, all praised Bush’s speech and blamed their state and local officials.

Could Nightline looked at its own ratings, then looked at Fox, and decided to test the waters a bit themselves?
