The Soviet National Evening News aired a special report called “Viewpoint". The hosts pointed out that "Viewpoint” had been kept off the air for the past six months. The hosts also discussed their political views, all of which were liberal and critical of the coup. Video clips of events surrounding this week’s failed coup were shown and described. Finally, the hosts interviewed a member of the Russian Central Committee, who argued that the Communist Party was not finished. The exchange was somewhat hostile. Translation of the Russian is by voice over. close
