Heimlich Family Feud on 20/20 Tonight
ABC's "20/20" plans a report tonight on Dr. Henry Heimlich and his public feud with his son, Peter (10 p.m., Chs 9, 22).
ABC is promoting the segment with the headline: "Dr. Heimlich's New 'Maneuver': Cure AIDS with Malaria." It may be new to Brian Ross, ABC's chief investigative correspondent, but it's not a new story. The Enquirer reported on Heimlich's controversial malaria injections in 1995.
It appears to be the hook for ABC to report on the five-year fight between Peter and his father. Ross speaks to Peter, but not his dad. Instead, son Phil Heimlich, the former Hamilton County commissioner, defends his famous father, ABC says.
