NBC's Brian Williams's Says…
When Tom Brokaw retires, he will be replaced by MSNBC's Brian Williams, who evidently possesses, according to a piece on CBS MarketWatch, a "wry side."
Williams, 45, is capable of showing good humor and a dry wit in public. When Time magazine held a lunch to discuss candidates for its person of the year, he exposed a side of his personality that is seldom seen on the air.Move over, Jay!
When a fellow panelist mentioned that bloggers had had a big impact on the reporting on Election Day, Williams waved that point away by quipping that the self-styled journalists are "on an equal footing with someone in a bathroom with a modem."
As for anchormen, those self-styled journalists are "on an equal footing with a drunk guy reading the New York Times to himself in the mirror."
Flush when you're finished, Bri.
