“Viewpoint” 1981 – 1987 Theme


This program was created in 1981 by Roone Arledge, as were most other ABC News programs of the time period. Viewpoint did not have a regular time slot. It was aired as a series of specials, usually in the place of Nightline and moderated by Ted Koppel. Viewpoint focused on media bias and how issues were covered. There was a live audience present, which was allowed to participate by asking questions to the experts and offering up their own critiques of television news. These two themes were both used for Viewpoint in the ’80s.
