Remember This? Brian Williams Shakes Finger at President Bush

So, not only did Williams try and make it look like Brewer was the only person who has ever shaken a finger at a U.S. president, but his confrontation and his own finger pointing at President Bush was initiated by him.

 

 

Flashback 2006: NBC's Brian Williams Points Finger At President Bush

Noel Sheppard's picture

As NewsBusters previously reported, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Thursday, reacting with predictably similar disgust as the rest of the media to the picture of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer pointing her finger at Barack Obama, asked viewers, "Who have you ever seen talking to the president like this?"

Maybe he should have looked in the archives of interviews he did with George W. Bush wherein he was guilty of making the exact same supposedly offensive hand gesture at the President of the United States (videos follow with loads of commentary):


From that Williams still, it looks like he and Bush were in quite a heated argument as opposed to the tremendously cordial exchange they were having, doesn't it?

Remember press members expressing disgust for Williams pointing his finger at the President that way?

Apparently Williams doesn't either, for here's part of his highly outraged report from Thursday: 



Maybe folks like him should have considered the full context of this discussion rather than jumping to absurd conclusions from one still shot.

That would have been especially reasonable given the raw video of Brewer's warm greeting of the President as well as the contents of the letter she handed to him.

But doing so would have been too much like actual journalism, wouldn't it?

*****Update: The original article claimed in the headline this Williams interview took place in 2007. Real Clear Politics reported it as August 2006. Upon review, RCP is correct. Actual air date was August 29, 2006. NewsBuster Brent Baker wrote about the interview at the time. Full transcript of interview is available here, video here.

Something else to consider is that this interview took place in New Orleans on the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. As such, it likely was quite well-viewed.

Yet nobody minded Williams pointing his finger at the President of the United States.


Brian Williams represents everything that is wrong about the media in today's world, it is biased, it is untruthful, it is in bed with the democrat machine.

NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, all owned by liberals, and now I'm also suspicious of Fox's motives - can't believe what they say.  Read between the lines.  And, yes, Brian Williams is a lying thug.
