For the most part, the gang at MSNBC has either ignored or downplayed the Brian Williams saga.
But, after the network announced that they had benched BriWi for 6 months without pay, Rachel Maddow led with the story on her show.
Problem was, NBC refused to talk to Maddow about the suspension or the story. She was not happy about it either. “No, NBC News will not make anyone available to discuss this story with us on the air,” she said during her show. “You’d think that if they’re going to talk to anybody about this, we might reasonably get a leg up on getting interviews with any NBC News executives to explain this decision if only because we’re right down the hall.”
Pretty bad when your own network shuts you out.
