Uh... - New NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on bloggers:
Williams, 45, is capable of showing good humor and a dry wit in public. When Time magazine held a lunch to discuss candidates for its person of the year, he exposed a side of his personality that is seldom seen on the air.
When a fellow panelist mentioned that bloggers had had a big impact on the reporting on Election Day, Williams waved that point away by quipping that the self-styled journalists are "on an equal footing with someone in a bathroom with a modem."Well, I did just get a wireless router and a laptop. Works in every room of the apartment. How the heck did he know?
I can neither confirm nor deny blogging from the bathroom.
