Part Two

The infamous Al Campanis Nightline interview happened 21 years ago. Today’s LA Times has a recap on the racist comments that cost Campanis his career and how the paper covered the story. If you’re too young to remember this, watch a real-life career trainwreck. It’s painful. It’s so bad that Campanis never worked again after this interview.

The interview starts with the blacks “lack necessities” comment and goes downhill from there. Watch how Koppel gives Campanis about eight chances to dig himself out but instead the old bastard just keeps burying himself. If you thought Don Imus was bad sit back and marvel. The irony of the situation was Nightline had Campanis on to “honor” Jackie Robinson.
