Season 38 : Episode 45

Show Summary

Among the most recognized and revered television newsmagazines, 20/20 was ABC's answer to CBS's 60 Minutes. Though some stories were humorous, light-hearted and sometimes frivolous features, the meat of "20/20's" programming was investigative reporting many times exposing corporate, medical, educational and governmental wrongdoing, incompetence and criminal negligence and reports on news events of the week from (often) different angles than was seen on the nightly news. Though most of the reports proved to be factual, some were heralded as sensationalist; others led to allegations of libel while at least one story later proved to be an embarrassing hoax. The show's current co-anchors are John Stossel and Elizabeth Vargas.

  • A Comment about Crime in the Dorm

    9.0
    The other day I was watching 20/20 about a rape in a college dorm. In the beginning, the boy got 25 years in prison and then the sentence was lessened. My opinion is when you see the boyfriend and girlfriend are staying in the same room at night, and the girl took some sleeping pills because she couldn't sleep, and the boy was massaging her to get her relaxed to sleep, it's natural that a young boy feels something and does the crime. They are not a 70-year-old couple sleeping in the same bed. Of course, it's a crime, but I don't think he should get a heavy sentence for it. Maybe just probation and expulsion from the college is enough. He should not get the sex-offender stigma for the rest of his life. When we grew up, we were not supposed to stay with anybody, not even cousins at night.

  • Pretty climactic

    8.0
    Love the way that the show always manages to keep itself climactic and it really feels like a Hitchcock film in real life at a perspective. It really has you be on edge many times each episode. Really worth a watch.
  • Failure to support or even expose the impossible problems men and boys face.

    10
    I am posting my disgust with the bigoted behaviour that ABC, News and 20/20 have demonstrated against the Men's Human Right Site "A Voice for Men". Not only has the 20/20 program demonstrated it's clearly maintained sexism, anti-male bias and obvious discrimination in it's refusal to show the program, but it also doctored that program in such a way to humiliate, denigrate and obfuscate any efforts that Men are trying to make a difference to their now additionally hardened lives.

    I find it now obvious that ABC, ABC News and the 20/20 programs to be bigoted and biased and not worthy of being viewed in any fashion at all. The hypocrisy of the program's host as well as management of the ABC media outlet, is a shear disgrace. It should have a good hard look at their own disgusting attitude towards men and boys issues in general. Obviously, the ABC and ABC's 20/20, only ever want to promote females and their issues while completely ignoring any issues, bias and bigotry, that men and boys face on a daily basis.moreless
