Koppel’s encounters with evil

Former “Nightline” host Ted Koppel fielded calls from all over the world from organizations trying to hire him.

Koppel will be working on “A Conversation with Ted Koppel and Tom Bettag” for the Discovery Channel. But he passed on an offer from Al Jazeera.

One critic at the winter press tour grabbed on to the story about Koppel talking to the Middle Eastern news organization, asking Koppel if he was afraid that could be used for propaganda purposes.

“Oh come on. I mean, I routinely meet with some of the nastiest people in the world,” Koppel said. Followed quickly by Bettag’s “Some of them are in this room.”
