Skip to comments.NBC's Brian Williams Knocks 'Hatred,' 'Venom' in Health Care Fight, Touts Objectivity

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams appeared on the BBC podcast Americana on Sunday and asserted that "hatred" and "venom" were part of the health care debate. He then hyperbolically claimed, "I would sooner jab my hand into a food processor than take a side." [MP3 Audio available here.]
The NBC journalist seriously trumpeted, "In my line of work I never engage in opinions, anyway." BBC presenter Matt Frei interviewed Williams for the podcast. (H/T to DB from the Biased BBC website.)
After Frei asked if the health care battle was for the "soul of America," the news anchor oddly replied, "It might well be. We've had a lot of anger building in this country. A lot of it goes back to Bill Clinton's affair with an intern, then from the attacks of 9/11."

Keep up the heat, America!
It’s not time to give in, or give up.
They need to see that we aren’t going to “get used” to the idea of socialized medicine.
I think Brian Williams is to full of himself. I can only hope his audience continues to decline.
Hatred and venom for NBC?
Why yes, yes I do.
So, when will Brian Williams be putting his hand into a blender on camera????
Brian Williams is no different than any other liberal in the government controlled media. Hates everything other than socialist, liberalism and Obama-ism. Never mind, Obama-ism is socialism and liberalism.
Do these people believe their lies, or are they lying deliberately?
NBC’s Brian Williams Knocks ‘Hatred,’ ‘Venom’ in Health Care Fight, Touts His Opinion As Objectivity, Has Instant Amnesia Due to Leg Tingles
Brian Williams is the new Tom Brokaw.
The old timers like David Brinkley actually had something to say. These guys are just phoneys of the first order.
I swear I’ve heard Tom Brokaw 1,000 times and never heard him say a damn thing.
In other words like it and shut up you unwashed masses...
Please tell me when the left has had any objectivity. Mentally they aren’t even over the age of 8.
Interesting question, and I've wondered as much.
I tend to think it's both, meaning that they want to believe them so much that they do, and that they look to each other for mutual confirmation (true mass hysteria, I should think.)
One other thing, while I'm being suspicious.
It seems quite possible, if not likely, that the WH might have a fine hand in instructing the "news" agencies to pile on the political enemies like this.
No proof, just a suspicion.
I can’t believe the leftist media have the stones to even pretend to be “objective”. It’s like Alan Colmes repeatedly asking “are you questioning my patriotism?” No, Alan, there’s no question that you’re a traitor.
Stunted growth with resultant pedantic behavior is definitely a hallmark of adult onset liberalism...
I wish I knew how to post that photo of Brian Williams bowing to Obama.
One thing about lefties, they are well organized and coordinated, if not transparent as hell. Someone must have supplied them all with the same talking points.
