The problem with the new “Nightline” extends far beyond the ascendance of the news troika of Cynthia McFadden, Terry Moran and Martin Bashir, says Robert Bianco. “The fatal flaw is the destruction of the old format: one host leading us through one topic for one half-hour. Now you have three stars presenting three stories; none were given significantly more time to develop than they would have found on most any other televised newscast.”
