Was NBC’s Brian Williams Too Soft on Snowden in Interview?
Was NBC’s Brian Williams too soft on Edward Snowden in his interview?
Howard Kurtz and Mediaite’s Joe Concha discussed the hour-long segment on today’s “Media Buzz.”
“If you felt that he is a hero in what he is doing, then you felt it was a wide ranging interview that talked about what he did with the NSA, but also showed his human side. If you felt that he was a traitor, then you’re probably screaming at your television screen, begging Brian Williams not to treat a follow-up question as if it’s a foreign concept,” Concha said.
The interview finished second in its time slot behind an episode of CSI. Concha said he was surprised it didn’t do better because of all the hype that surrounded it.
