Brian Williams: ‘We Don’t Wait; We Attack’

brian_w_9-2.jpgIn an interview with B&C’s Marisa Guthrie, NBC “Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams discussed twitter, accuracy in journalism, his program’s success, and the current news landscape. An excerpt:

Many observers say that we’ve reached a new low in civility in this country. Do you agree with the pundit-ocracy that the media have contributed to that?

It’s a bit of a chicken-and-egg thing when you get into where it started and what’s perpetuating it. But I know that the language and the discourse in my country are completely alien to what I grew up with. What my kids know and are aware of as college students today, what they knew and were aware of as young teenagers, are a world apart from the America I grew up with. We have changed. We are a coarser society. We don’t wait; we attack, we pounce.

Williams is hosting the B&C Hall of Fame gala tomorrow night.
