Boring Anchor Brian Williams Bitchslaps Bloggers

Bland, boring, antiseptic white bread anchor-elect Brian Williams (Averted Gaze), that helmet haired Washingtonian sissy, had some choice words -- dare I prithee to say (air quotes) "zingers" -- for bloggers, words that stung like a bitchslap delivered with ... particular brio (The Corsair rubs his cheek, ruefully) and more than a touch of dash. According to CBS MarketWatch:

"Williams, 45, is capable of showing good humor and a dry wit in public. When Time magazine held a lunch to discuss the candidates for its Person of the Year issue, he exposed a side of his personality that is seldom seen on the air.

"When a fellow panelist mentioned that bloggers 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.'"

A touch, a touch, I do confess, I fear I breathe my last. Oh, the dry wit was fairly chaffing off that bon mot. Saucy, Brian Williams ... (The Corsair turns to face the TelePrompter, giving the cameras a full three quarter head shot, moistens his lips, bats his eylashes, whispers, faintly, into the hot mic:) ... "Saucy."

Although I worked for Brian Williams on his MSNBC show many moons ago, and I do have more respect for him than Chris Matthews, I have to say this: please, Mr. Williams...stop trying to act/be like Edward R. Murrow. It ain't happenin'. And get rid of that furrowed-brow, diahreea-face; we're already innundated by Ammodium AD commercials at dinner time.

The diarhhea-face and the helmet hair is so 80s Anchorman. When will these networks learn?

Humph! I've just lost what little respect I had for B.W. Up until this point he was just non-threatening, cookie cutter suburban white boy. What a pretentious bastard!

you see what I've wrought (The Corsair laughs a sinister, self satisfied laugh). It's on Brian Williams (sotoo voce) it's on like Gray Pouon!
