Brian Williams Knows Hes Dead
Politico ^ | April 30, 2015 | JACK SHAFER

At this point, Brian Williams knows he’s dead: He’s simply negotiating the terms of his burial.

For a brief moment earlier this week, it looked as though Williams might have found a champion in Andrew Lack, the newly returned chief of NBC News. According to a blind-sourced story in the Daily News, Lack was hoping to reseat his old friend Williams in the network’s anchor chair. But whoever launched that trial balloon—presumably a Williams loyalist—must have been ducking for cover the next day when the Hollywood Reporter and the New York Post sent high-velocity rounds through the Daily News item with a blind-sourced story of its own. “They want Brian to resign,” an anonymous source told the Post. “If they have to fire him, they can’t control him.” That came just days after the Washington Post’s Paul Farhi broke news of the DC bureau’s “strong opposition” to Williams returning to the anchor chair.

The dueling leaks, which commenced even before the network suspended Williams for telling tall tales, might look like symmetrical warfare. But they’re not. NBC News is part of Comcast, which has a market cap of $147 billion. Just before this winter’s unpleasantness, Williams had negotiated a five-year contract for as much as $10 million a year.

Because she is a useful idiot whereas Brian Williams is just an idiot.

NBC News told Williams he would come back.

They did what he did.

I suppose the Clinton power and money machine has the most to do with their invulnerability.

I still expect a crash and burn by Hillary!.

"Brian Williams Knows He’s Dead"

Didn't he report he died alongside John Wilkes Booth at Garrett's Farm?

No doubt, but he also believes that after three days he will arise again.

Libs think that everyone is in whatever profession they’re in solely for the money. Except themselves, of course.
