Here's a Perspective from anchor Walter Jacobson, from the 6pm edition of Channel 2 News on WBBM Channel 2.

In this op-ed, Walter starts off by bringing up the influence and impact of First Ladies and other relatives on recent Presidential elections (citing then-current First Lady Rosalynn Carter and her brother-in-law Billy), before going to the role Nancy Reagan is playing on behalf of her husband, Ronald Reagan, in the 1980 Presidential campaign (with a still of Ronnie with Jesse Jackson during a campaign stop in Chicago being shown for a few seconds). A brief clip of Nancy in an interview, speaking of the Democrats' taking blacks for granted "for many years," and how more blacks have gone on welfare under Democrat policies, is seized by Walter as an example of what Nancy thinks of black people, and cites statistics showing how, of the approximately 6 million black families (as of 1980), about 2 million (almost a third) were actually on welfare - and he concludes this "Perspective" by opining that he'd be more comfortable with Billy Carter.

Incomplete commercial for Northwest Federal Savings (voiceover by ?? - sounds almost like Mason Adams) (tape cuts out only 8 seconds into ad)

"most of them being on welfare..."
