Trivia

In 1998, ABC News combined "Primetime Live" with 20/20 (1978) to compete with Dateline NBC (1992) which aired four days a week at the time. The new editions were called "20/20 Monday", "20/20 Wednesday", "20/20 Friday", "20/20 Sunday", and _"20/20 Downtown" (2000)_. In 2000, ABC News returned "20/20" and "Primetime" to their original forms but kept "20/20 Downtown" as a spin-off. See more »

Diane Sawyer says porn industry is evil?!
1 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

so these people allowed someone to continue to abuse a child, even though they had evidence! And they say the porn industry is bad?!?!?! At least the porn industry is (if it is damaging anyone at all) only damaging fully consenting adults!!!

hypocritical and evil! I hate that this "feminism" tells us that somehow a man knows himself and knows what he wants when he gets into the porn business, but a women..."oh no she cannot possibly understand what she is getting into, or stand up for herself....that would be impossible!"

That's not feminism, that's babying women, and treating them as if they are children!
