NBC's Brian Williams wins an award

It the time of year again for the Media Research Center to issue its "best of" awards for news coverage.  In the category of "The Poison Tea Pot Award for Smearing the Anti-Obama Rabble," this clip of NBC anchor Brian Williams earned runner-up status:
“It makes people feel better to say ‘Take our country back.’ If you ask them, they would say from, ‘from the Trilateral Commission, from the big bankers, from the Council on Foreign Relations.’...You see a lot of signs, ‘Federal Government Out of My Social Security,’ ‘Federal Government Out of My Medicare and Medicaid,’ but for the federal government, of course, those programs would not exist.”
— NBC’s Brian Williams talking about the Tea Party on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman, August 23.
What struck me about this particular quote is the contrast between (a) Williams' position as Managing Editor of NBC Nightly News, a position which should give him some familiarity with current events, and (b) the not merely uninformed but also downright delusional nature of his claims about Tea Party issues.

NBC = Never Been Correct ?
