TV Series
    (March 31, 1992- )
    Airs on (surprise!) NBC
    Original anchors: Jane Pauley and Stone Phillips
    Anchor in 2008: Ann Curry
    Premise: News magazine mixing investigative reporting, true crime and human interest stories
    For a story about allegedly unsafe GM pickups, they rigged the truck with remotely detonated explosives (1993).
    The report that aired did not disclose that the accident was staged.
    They have been accused of planting accomplices to entrap the targets of stories.
    Two crew members doing a story about general aviation security were arrested at the St. Louis Airport after trying to pay for a helicopter flight in cash (2004).
    Their 'To Catch a Predator' segments with Chris Hansen have been accused of making news rather than reporting it.
    It was NBC's first successful prime time news magazine after 20 failures.
    NBC finds adding another Dateline episode to the week a useful technique for plugging holes in its schedule.
    Its flexibility allows for in-depth coverage of breaking stories.
    Three producers were fired over the GM truck story and Pauley read an apology on the air.
