Regular Guy Brian
Can you believe Brian Williams? On Thursday's Nightly News, Brian said, "And if we're all feeling poorer, the Federal Reserve put some actual numbers on that today." We? Golly, I sure hope that Brian doesn't have to go on food stamps or sell his collection of military challenge medals. There is nothing more condescending than a wealthy elitist trying to sound like a "regular guy". It was just plain thoughtless for Brian Williams (with his 8-figure salary) to say that "we're all feeling poorer". Maybe Brian should spend more time picking out his on-air ties, and less time pretending that he's "one of us". Considering that many of his viewers are out of work or barely making ends meet, that insensitive comment made Brian seem like even more of a pompous ass than usual.
