From Brian Williams's April 5 Daily Nightly blog: "Not since the grave illness of former Chief Justice Rehnquist have we realized this far in advance that the president will have an upcoming vacancy to fill on the Supreme Court. I follow the court fairly regularly, and this kind of public airing of his life is in keeping with the straight-ahead approach of John Paul Stevens. It will be interesting to see how it accelerates the 'pre-debate' over the president's selection."
Why does Brian feel the need to brag about following the Supreme Court? He's supposed to. That's his job as a news anchor. That would be like a USPS letter carrier bragging about delivering the mail. Brian should spend a little less time boasting about how he does his job, and a little more time actually doing it.
