"One of my problems in selling him to television critics -- they thought he was too young. They thought that he was inexperienced. They thought he was too pretty. They thought he had too many girls around. And they thought he was being paid too much money. Other than that, what's wrong?" - Elmer Lower, president of ABC News in 1964

"I mean, it was ludicrous. I look back now, and I wonder to myself what they must have been thinking." - Peter Jennings, "Rolling Stone," May 4, 1989 (ABC Photo Archives)
