Finger Point At President

You were saying, Mr. Williams? 
Brian Williams Interviewing President Bush, January 21, 2007
TEASE At Beginning of Newscast

BRIAN WILLIAMS: Also, finger pointing. That photo everybody was talking about today. Who have you ever seen talking to the president like this and what was this all about?

WILLIAMS: All of this takes us to the photo everybody's been talking about today. The governor of Arizona with her finger in the face of the President of the United States. You don't see that often or maybe ever.

Maybe folks like him should have considered the full context of this discussion rather than jumping to absurd conclusions from one still shot.

That would have been especially important given the raw video of Brewer's warm greeting of the President as well as the contents of the letter she handed to him.

But doing so would have been too much like actual journalism, wouldn't it?
