Enough already with the Brain Williams scandal!
I get that this Brian Williams scandal is a big story, but there are three consecutive pieces on the New York Times homepage right now. Surely there are bigger things happening in the world. And it’s not just the New York Times, it’s everybody. Nobody can stop talking about this story, and I really don’t have any idea why. I get that Brian Williams either lied or misrepresented himself or whatever, but I gotta tell you, I don’t really care. If you like listening to Brian Williams on the news, then super. If you don’t, then you probably already don’t watch him. It seems to me that this is an NBC problem; they’ll either fire him because they think he’s lost credibility with their audience or they won’t… I just can’t wrap my head around why everybody finds this story so interesting. I guess everybody loves a scandal.
It sure would be nice the folks that have the resources to cover the big stories could just let this one go and concentrate on the stuff that truly matters .
