John Wall's Dougie makes ABC's Nightline

By Dan Steinberg

One day, we may look back on this as the official death knell of the Dougie. "This" is a four-minute examination of the cultural impact of the Dougie on American society, or something like that, from ABC's Nightline. One of the touchdown moments in the piece is, yes, John Wall's pre-game Dougie from the Wizards' home opener, the dance that launched a thousand Colin Cowherd rants.

And no, John Wall's New Year's Eve Dougie-Off with Chris Brown did not make the cut.

This kind of "dance reporting culture" just makes me sick. It's absolutely disgusting what ABC is doing out there, showing off their understanding of pop culture. You know who I admire? Al Roker and the folks at The Weather Channel, simply reporting the weather conditions for the good folks of America. That's real, humble, blue-collar journalism. You know what I really want to know? Who is ABC's parent network? If you ask me, you can't have great programming without a solid parent network guiding you in your formative years on the air. As far as I'm concerned, you can keep "Nightline" to yourselves. Just give me "60 Minutes" or "Weather on the 8s" and that's all I need.
