Brian's Wonderful Life
On his Wednesday Daily Nightly blog, Brian Williams yet again proclaimed himself to be a dog lover (for the 1,346th time). Meanwhile, on the same day, a Nightly News "Making A Difference" segment was sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline--one of the world's largest utilizers of animal testing. Brian's right hand may be patting a dog's head, but behind his back his left hand is being greased with all that lucrative Glaxo sponsorship money. We all know the line from "It's A Wonderful Life"--"Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings." Well, every time Glaxo sponsors a MAD segment, a poor dog has given its life.
