This was groundbreaking TV Journalism that first aired in 1986 by CBS News
And it was my first major reporting assignment on prime time television …
None of us who reported this story — the introduction of crack cocaine into our culture — wrote a script. There were no voice overs, also known as narration. Just real life action unfolding before our eyes, and the viewers’ eyes — in some scary places around New York City.
Hope you enjoy.
