5 Feb

Recently, Brian Williams an anchor for NBC News, apologized on air for lying about being in a helicopter that was forced down after being shot at in Iraq during a 2003 assignment.

I came across an appearance that Brian made on David Lettermen in 2014.  He talks about Chris Christie, the bridge shutting down, perjury and Bridget Ann Kelly.

PBS Mr. Selfridge is set to make its second season debut next year. The series is currently filming in the UK, and will pick up in 1914, which will mark the store’s fifth anniversary.  But just like Downton Abbey, the time frame means that the characters (and the business) are all about to be greatly affected by the impending world war.[1] Aside from the great characters and story, costume designer James Keast, is excellent at defining for audiences, characters social class and aspirations through wardrobe.
