    I was kidding. Yes of course you can. Seriously tho I do think Brian Williams is bitter about not having Nightly News. He's lucky he's still at MSNBC. His show does well without him.

    On a separate but related note I can see Lester being a witness for Mueller and if that's the case he might have to recuse himself from some or perhaps even all of NBC's special coverage regarding the Mueller investigation at some point.

    That might happen, we will see if we get to that point.

    I regularly watch the 11th Hour and don’t think Brian Williams is bitter. He certainly was humbled but he still has the same personality on air.

    I don’t work in tv news at all. All you do is criticize NBC and that’s your right, but it just seems a little suspect. I see you went on a bit of a commenting spree there yesterday to disprove that by commenting in non-NBC threads. Seems like you’re the one that’s triggered.

    Exactly. If Lester is a witness in a trial that's on virtually every network that's around I can't imagine he'd be able to anchor NN while a part of the story. If that happened he can be off NN for several months or perhaps even longer. He would probably still do Dateline shows that were of a different subject matter tho it would be unprecedented for a Network Anchorperson to be off a newscast for an extended period of time due to being part of a major news story tho it would be necessary especially with all the cries of fake news out there today.

    Have I missed something? How is Lester Holt connected to Mueller's investigation?

    He’s not, but Trump did an interview with him last year, and the topic of the Comey firing came up during it.

    I did not know you followed, observed or cared what I said so much or what places I go. I am not talking about you, so you should not take it personally.

    I do not follow you. However, I’m observant, your posts stand out, and I have taken notice of your pattern. I’m not taking it personally, it just seems that you have a vendetta against NBC properties, namely Today and NN. And it seems like you repeat the same stuff over and over. I have not bothered looking at your post history, but the only time I have seen you comment elsewhere is after I called you out.

    This is the reason why NBC is a disorganized mismanaged network.

    Lester Holt is off tonight. I will presume unless and until I hear otherwise that he's only off because he's scheduled to be off if you know what I mean.

    I gave Lester the night off.

    He needs a hug.

    If you know what I mean.

    It’s the night before the WHCD. He could be traveling to DC.

    Lester Holt and Maria Bartaromo were mentioned in Muellers list of questions.

    Lester Holt seems to be the only living anchor or former anchor of Nightly News with any decency expect for maybe Roger Mudd.

    I heard a lot of good things about Lester Holt, he seems like a down to earth decent guy that is not caught up in the ego like other people in his profession. That since of down to earth demeanor will take him far and make him greater in his career. He is the only anchor on tv that has the human touch. what I always like about him is his straight shoot style of reporting.

    His way of speaking and presenting the news is so pinpointed. He speaks to his viewers he does not talk down to them. I am a long time news junkie and Lester Holt is by far the greatest news anchor of this era. Everyone else is caught up in wanting to sound fancy, smart and "educated" and they wonder why mainstream media approval is at an all time low. Stop the self grandeur and just present people with information.

    Lester Holt has been a favorite of mine since Weekend Today when he anchored with Campbell Brown. That was a good while ago and Lester still has the same charm and charismatic personality that made him a hit back then.
