It looks like MSNBC is going to take a page straight out of the Fox News playbook when it comes to using Brian Williams at the network.
Plans are still being worked out, but it appears that Lying Brian will be the "Breaking News Anchor" and have his own team working for him.
If this sounds similar to Fox News and Shepard Smith's role, it's because it is. No word if BriWi will get a "News Deck" with giant iPdas like Smith, but a Fox News EP predicted that the idea would be copied.
While announcing Smith's role as Breaking News Anchor, FNC EP Kim Rosenberg said, “Eventually I think this concept will be copied and this will be the norm.”
Sounds like MSNBC is going to do just that.
