Morton Downey Jr. Documentary

I remember when Morton Downey Jr. exploded on the scene with his TV show that aired in New York on Channel 9.

He was a loud, obnoxious, foul mouthed, bigoted, reactionary rightwing skunk.

The show was insulting and revolting.

I watched it all the time.

There was nothing quite like it on television back then.

Despite the awful, repugnant politics he represented, the show was truly entertaining and dare I say, compelling.

At least it was to my young, developing mind.

The bright side to all of this is that Morton Downey Jr.’s meteoric rise to fame ended for him and his tv show just as quickly.
