I remember the time I intercepted the ball at the one yard line with 20 seconds left during Super Bowl XLIX. Wait….actually I’m “misremembering.” Sort of like the time Brian Williams recalled being on a bird that was forced down after being hit by a rocket propelled grenade. Anyway, it looks like Brian will be vacating his anchor chair “for the next several days.” What a shame. I actually kind of liked Brian Williams. Not Brian Williams the news anchor, but definitely Brian Williams the rapper. Say What?
Brian Williams issued a statement today, saying:
“In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions.”
“As Managing Editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue. Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us.”
This is the Brian Williams I’m choosing to remember….Never forget…
