Brian Williams shot off an email to Gawker chieftain Nick Denton over the weekend, because, well, Brian Williams spends his Sundays watching “Meet the Press” and reading Gawker. Williams took a graceful shot at Gawker’s weekend coverage of late saying they missed the story of “one of the worst outings in SNL history” by “Brooklyn hipster Lana Del Rey.”
[W]hile I know you’re in the midst of an editor change, weekends have been allowed to go awfully fallow…
Williams’ NBC publicist added fuel to the fire Monday by requesting that the post be taken down. Right.
Anyway, the fire burns still; one that the former Middletown Township volunteer firefighter Williams would rather snuff out. And don’t expect any more SNL musical guest reviews from the “Nightly News” anchor, at least not in the form of an email to Nick Denton.
