… CAUSE HE’S COMING BACK THIS MONTH
|| By FITSNEWS || For those of you prefer your news embellished – or “misremembered” – former NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams will be back on the job later this month.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Williams will debut as MSNBC’s “breaking news” anchor beginning on September 22.
Thus ends his six-month suspension for … you know … lying.
“Williams will not have a dedicated hour on the schedule,” the outlet reported, quoting unnamed network executives. “Rather, he’ll work on various afternoon programs as news warrants.”
Hmmm … perhaps he could replace poverty pimp Al Sharpton‘s occasionally intelligible program?
Williams already lost his job hosting NBC Nightly News to Lester Holt. Of course both read from the same left-leaning Teleprompter, so … it’s not like there’s much difference.
Williams’ comeuppance is especially enjoyable for us bloggers – whom he ridiculed in 2007.
“You’re going to be up against people who have an opinion, a modem, and a bathrobe,” he said at the time. “All of my life, developing credentials to cover my field of work, and now I’m up against a guy named Vinny in an efficiency apartment in the Bronx who hasn’t left the efficiency apartment in two years.”
“Maybe so … but at least Vinny’s not a liar,” we wrote earlier this year by way of a response.
