Where was MSNBC's Breaking News Anchor?

When NBC demoted lying Anchor Brian Williams to redheaded step child MSNBC, the cable network said BriLie would be handling the big breaking new for the channel.

So, when the USdid a prisoner swap for Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian and three other Americans being held in Iran, we have to wonder, where was Brian Williams?

There is no doubt that the story was "Breaking News" and yet the "Breaking News Anchor" for MSNBC was nowhere to be found.

He must only be the breaking news anchor during the week. Because, you know, real news never breaks on the weekend.

Of course, maybe Brian Williams could not Anchor the news, because it was him that brokered the deal in the first place?

Just saying....
