More Cowbell! More Afghan Orphans!

From Brian Williams's May 17 Daily Nightly blog: "It was a high honor this weekend to deliver the Commencement Address and receive an Honorary Doctorate at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend. It was the experience of a lifetime, and it took the efforts of so many people to make it happen."

I am absolutely shocked that Brian did not show any clips from his commencement address during his newscast. Nightly News is always first and foremost about Brian, and he always manages to turn stories around so they are about him (hence his favorite phrase--"For those of us who..."--that transforms a news story into a story about Brian). Monday's pandering Nightly News story purportedly about Sally Field was actually the 235th story about the Afghan Orphans that Brian has made into his cause celebre. So I'm giving good odds that Brian's commencement address will show up on Nightly News one of these days soon.
