These special programs, anchored by Barbara Walters, or one of the other news anchors, delves deeper into some news stories. They can be political in nature, news from the entertainment world, human interest, or the fashion industry. Basically the sky's the limit on topics covered. If the subject covered is an individual in politics, religion, entertainment, etc., the questions many times are hard hitting. And, in many cases the subject is considered controversial. Subjects like same-sex marriage, or busing for racial balance. No matter what the subject is for the ABC News Special, it is always current and topical. These specials do not come around frequently, though. Only a handful of times each year, when the American Broadcasting Network deems it necessary. But, they are produced with only one thing in mind, to inform the viewer. The word NEWS is derived from the directions North, East, West and South. You can be assured that ABC News Specials do not have any limitation on where in the world the news subject is located. The person my be a dignitary from a Middle Eastern country, or a film star from Hollywood. These News Specials have been produced for many, many years. They always receive fairly good ratings.
