When did we reach the point where we had to apply Poe’s Law to actual news stories? Was it the beginning of the Trump campaign, or were we there already?
The mere existence of Brian Williams on my screen during the primary season was bad enough. The fact that he’s getting his own show is really pissing me off! He takes over as the bossman during the team coverage of election nights, even though Rachel Maddow should be the top dog on those nights since it is her show that brings the highest ratings, as well as the fact that she is demonstrably the smartest and most erudite person on that stage at any time. All Williams has to say are insipid platitudes or restatements of stuff other people have said better.
