I think that Brian Williams' hiatus for 6 months will award him the time needed to work on perfecting his new career in rap music

And consistent with how news is reported it is very often as important to discover what has not been said. In the releases yesterday reviewing the 3 options that were considered for Williams the 6 months leave without pay EXCLUDES any promise of returning to his old job!

It is highly unlikely the network will just idle along waiting for his return. They will take what ever actio(s) neccessary to maintain their number one position. And then face the gamble of whether to gamble/risk putting him back.

Why would they wait 6 months to roll the dice of uncertainty 6 monthd hence?

A true journalist, Bob Simon of 60 Minutes, was killed in a car accident last night. He was the antithesis of celebrity journalists like Williams. Those who make themselves part of the news should take note.

I hope you mean who cares about Brian Williams and not about Bob Simon.
It's harder to hate close up.
