Is Brian Williams Sending NBC A Message?

“Put ROCK CENTER at 10:00 on Saturdays. It would be fantastic for the news department. It was finally a news show that I enjoyed watching. And I'm 20 years old.”

“It's not a problem to fire him for his statements. After all, he did say he expected it. I completely understand. It is a problem to call him some of the names I've seen on here for his views. That was my only point all along.”

“Bigotry is "intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself." Calling someone you've never met a creep based on his opinions definitely fall into this category. I'm not saying he's right or wrong. I'm just saying that there's way too much hate coming from both conservatives and liberals.”

“Actually, bigotry is the intolerance of any ideas but your own, which means that if you don't have an open mind, you're a bigot. That's not to say you can't have an opinion. However, if you refuse to even consider others' views on the subject, you are one.”

“That's a false equivalence. What you're doing is saying that Martin Luther King was no different than Jim Crowe. It's a pretty stupid opinion.

One side is opposing the way people are born. The other side is opposing hating the way people are born. They're OPPOSITE, not the same. One is just hate. One is love.”

“It cracks me up that people are saying "Fire him! He should follow the golden rule!" when you're asking for a man to be fired for his personal beliefs. Tolerance DOES NOT mean agreeing on every issue. It's "the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with."

Yes, it is bigoted to say you're against homosexuality. Yes, it is bigoted to say that he is a "creep" and so on. Please know what words mean before you use them (both sides of the camp).”

urgk on Apr 28, 2012 at 15:46:51

“Nobody's calling for him to be fired for his personal beliefs. It's the expression of those beliefs in the context of his job.

If I'm a trainer at a gym who believes that wolfing down a 12-pack of Twinkies for breakfast is the quickest way to get in shape, and I express that belief in public, I'm likely to lose my job. Right? Because I've proven I have no business doing what I've been hired to do.

The question here is whether this kind of bigotry against gay people disqualifies Ron Brown from being a leader of young men, some of whom might be gay.”

wmad on Apr 28, 2012 at 12:47:19

“It's not even that he's against homosexuality. Your views alone won't get you fired. However, he spoke against an ordinance offering protection for LGBT citizens against discrimination. That is what he'll get fired for.”

this is not about his beliefs it is about his ego and his wanting to be in the news.”

“You are missing the point- he can express his views but when he makes comments as a representative of the college - he should be fired.
When he spoke in front of the city council he represented himself as speaking as an employer of UNL.
UNL is a land grant school and money is from the state thus he can and will be fired.”

“Jesus Christ didn't come to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it is. Instead, He came to set the world right and welcome anyone to a relationship with Him! As a Christian, I believe that Jesus can transform the lives of people who are straight, gay, divorced, widowed, bullied, oppressed, or care-free. Jesus loves everyone! Let's do the same!”

“I strongly disagree with you on most points. I found the new season to be highly enjoyable. I do wish all the episodes would have been within the range of 21-25 minutes. Nonetheless, I found that the gags worked (ostriches, imagine/imaging, Kristen Wiig as Lucille, "against the wall" puns, callbacks and all) and I LOVED the new characters - DeBrie, Herbert Love, and Rebel Alley. Not a huge fan of either of the GOB episodes, but enjoyed the rest. I'm on the rewatch now. All my friends pretty much agree with me.”

“I really wanted to cut the cord, but I decided I'd miss AMC, TBS, and USA too much. Instead, our family went with a cheaper provider.

Will content creators decide against free episodes on company sites/hulu? Will networks be allowed to insert specific commercials with a "no skip" policy (like on some dvds)? Will the broadcast schedule soon all be on a dvr-type/on-demand machine? Will networks make their tv shows must see by creating "time limits" on computers/dvrs (i.e. The Office is available on Thursday at 9 and will be available until the next episode takes its place)?

Those are just some interesting ideas that I've heard mentioned before.”

“Automatically skipping commercials is not a right. Why don't you just mute it? (You can do other stuff such as talking to your family in the breaks.)

Ad-skipping device --> Lower Ad Revenue --> Lower Quality Programming or (more likely) Consumer Pays Directly for Content (instead of indirectly by watching commercials)

Come on, America! Let's not try to feel too entitled.”

“If it can develop more complete characters, it could become like Parks & Rec (though more serious/cynical). There are a lot of stories to mine in the government setting. I loved Julia on Seinfeld, Old Christine, and Arrested Development (along with Tony Hale). Even though it's on HBO, I felt like a bunch of the language was unnecessary in the pilot. It seemed like the f-word was used every two minutes. I think if they would've looked to expand their vocabulary, it could've led to funnier wordplay/jokes.”

“I was a first-time audience for this episode. I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to watch it filmed before my very eyes. I thought Sofia did an excellent job. I rewatched the episode to make sure it wasn't me just watching it blissfully because I was there. Other than the Gilly sketch, the audience was really into it. I had made a bet that Manuel Ortiz would show up again so I'm glad it did. I know we should be "past that" when it comes to the Just Friends sketch. That was the point of mocking it, was it not? Overall, I felt like the content of EACH sketch was consistently better than most weeks. I would rank it right after the episodes that Maya & Jimmy hosted and right before the episodes that McCarthy, Stone, and Baldwin hosted.”
