The Barbara Walters adoption game show

Adoption Isn't A Game Show (
Tonight ABC's weekly news program '20/20' is to air Barbara Walters's profile of Jessica, a pregnant 16-year-old who will select among five couples vying to adopt her child. Jessica will participate in an open adoption, an increasingly popular practice that allows adoptive parents and, in many cases, the child to maintain contact with birth parent.

I wonder what state she's operating out of? In many states child protective services would be looking in very closely.

Barbara Walters has fallen a long way. ABC must share a deep desperation with her.

The bright side of living in a nation with zillions of laywers is that you know they're all figuring out how best to sue ABC.
