Connie Chung's interview of Congressman Gary Condit will be presented tonight as an ABC News program. But don't let the label fool you: This is merely the latest entry in the blazing-hot genre of reality programming - somewhere between rats crawling over contestants on NBC's Fear Factor and Julie Chen interviewing the guy who put a knife to a woman's throat on CBS' Big Brother. Each of the Big Three networks can be equally proud of how they elevate the culture through video spectacles of voyeurism, narcissism, exhibitionism and titillation.

A historic verdict in racially motivated killings in the Deep South. A deadly suicide bombing in the Middle East. A threat registered against New York City landmarks. A presidential visit abroad. These were the stories displaced over the past two days for this development: the discovery of skeletal remains in the woods of Rock Creek Park in northwest Washington. Television briefly transported its viewers this week to an earlier age, just nine or 10 months ago, when there was little enough happening in the world that the disappearance of Chandra Levy could dominate the airwaves.

Gary Condit is a creep. There's no law against that. The Senate will be a duller place without Jesse Helms, and might actually works. A police substation downtown is a neat idea. Every neighborhood should have one. Another judicial administrator who antedates Chief Judge Bell bites the dust. Baltimore City lends big bucks to Citigroup. What's wrong with this picture.

Poor Bloomberg. Now he has to be mayor of New York. Kathleen has so much money, she should run in a bigger state. Hey, Bud, if it is not in Washington, it is not the national pastime. Things are so back to normal, we'll soon fuss about Gary Condit again. It's ridiculous to think that a team with a 5-3 record could go on to win the Super Bowl.

World leaders are descending on Washington to publicly show solidarity and privately urge restraint. (The times cry out for split infinitives.) What goes down must come up, sayeth the Olde Investor. Rudy Giuliani, all is forgiven. The new security measures at police HQ make downtown Baltimore look like Belfast before the cease-fire. Whatever became of Gary Condit?

California Gov. Gray Davis broke his long silence over the conduct of Rep. Gary A. Condit yesterday, joining the chorus of criticism over the lawmaker's seeming lack of candor since the disappearance of former intern Chandra Levy. "I'm disheartened that Congressman Condit did not speak out more quickly or more fully," Davis said of his political ally. But he did not urge Condit to resign or try to dissuade him from seeking re-election, as have other Democrats. "While I get no joy out of this whatsoever, I just think it is important that Gary Condit be as forthcoming as possible, do everything humanly possible, to help law enforcement identify the location of Chandra Levy," Davis said at a news conference.

The following were excerpted from editorials about ABC-TV's Connie Chung's interview Thursday night with Rep. Gary Condit, D-Calif.: From Saturday's New York Times: Rep. Gary Condit obviously regards himself as one of the unluckiest men in America. The media are hounding him. The police misrepresented him. Chandra Levy's parents misunderstood him, her aunt is making up stories about him, an airline flight attendant is defaming him, and his lawyer is sending unauthorized letters. But this situation involves a tragedy, not a sex scandal.

WASHINGTON - I'm a little confused. Didn't we all agree that "everyone lies about sex"? So Gary Condit did the right thing, didn't he, in denying a sexual relationship with Chandra Levy for nearly 10 weeks and keeping the police in the dark? He was protecting his family, as any solid citizen would do, right? We don't crucify people for that. The fullest expression of post-Clintonian morality came from one of Mr. Condit's constituents. Asked if he thought Mr. Condit might have had a role in Ms. Levy's disappearance, he said: "That's his personal life.

People who hate unions should go to work today. Everyone has his own notion of Gary Condit's crime. To his Democratic colleagues, it is being unre-electable. Who said our governor was dull? O'Malley for State's Attorney! Never mind which O'Malley. That can be specified later. School tomorrow. Make the most of it.

WHY U.S. Rep. Gary Condit agreed to a television interview remains a mystery. His evasive answers and demeanor did nothing to help his political future. In fact, his arrogant failure to apologize and post-interview charges that he outright lied did much to transform him from possibly misunderstood man to possible monster. Overnight polls suggest the interview hurt him with the American people and with his constituents in particular. There no doubt will be further calls for his resignation from Congress.
