In an interview with TVNewser about his new gig with Cokie Roberts on RLTV longtime ABC Newser Sam Donaldson lamented that he didn’t think NBC’s  new news magazine The Rock will be able to stay strictly with hard news.

“I fear there’s not an appetite for a real newsmagazine, other than ’60 Minutes,’ which is imbedded. The news business has moved on. You can say you won’t do JLo’s new boyfriend, but that’s where it is for outlets that have to aggregate a large audience.

“If you need a lot of viewers, you’re going to have to do the three-headed pig.”

Oink. oink.
