Did Brian Williams go too far by comparing Obama to Richard Pryor? | The Tylt
Brian Williams compared President Obama’s speech to Richard Pryor while anchoring MSNBC’s coverage. This comes directly after he softballs Hugh Hewitt, allowing him to attack Hillary Clinton. The social media response against Williams has been merciless.
Did Brian Williams go too far?
Williams' critics are saying that he crossed a line—even more so than when he lied about being shot at. They’re blasting his comment as not only disrespectful, but as racist. People are wondering how the man still has his job. But not everyone is criticizing Williams. Some are calling those outraged "overly sensitive" in this case. Williams' defenders say political correctness culture is at work again.
