How Ted Koppel and ABC TV Tried to Steal my Life Work

The treacherous, scary world of freelance journalism… which is not nearly as treacherous and scary as the world that many freelance journalists cover. And so you would figure that being fellow journalists, Ted Koppel would somehow find a way to support freelancer Nate Thayer for his amazing work.

What I didn’t think would happen was what in fact did happen: Ted Koppel, complicit in such lame behaviour saved for Hollywood agents, and all for a story. Sure, a huge nutty story about a genocidal mass murderer but integrity & camaraderie has to count for something in this world, doesn’t it?
