You just watched a commercial

That's what many of the so-called news stories on this show are - just publicity pieces that promote and advertise a company or hollyweird star.

Nightline is for sale to the highest paying advertiser - and your opinion has just been bought.

It's a shame that a "news" show is for sale to the highest bidder.
