Brian Williams On The Daily Show: America Today Compared To "Titanic Struggle" Of FDR, But Not So Bad He Needs To Twitter About It

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, speaking to Jon Stewart of the Daily Show last night, characterized the state of the nation as comparable to the "titanic struggle" faced by "the big man," Franklin Delano Roosevelt. "We don't know what's going to happen tomorrow," Williams said, "We don't know how bad this is." He did not rise to Stewart's baited suggestion that everyone withdraw their money from the banks "at midnight," however, saying: "John, I'm suggesting nothing of the sort." That's too bad, because it would have been an excellent way to create synergy with last night's "Tracy Jordan freaks out America" episode of 30 Rock.

Oh, and gird yourself: Brian Williams does not Twitter. And that's okay. He's got a "teevee show." Things will be okay. They really, really will. I promise you.
