Excellent News Program
Appreciate the wit and wisdom offered by Brian Williams and his guests while covering the state of events in the U.S. and the world.
The Eleventh Hour
I keep listening because he sometimes has news updates, beyond the earlier in the evening podcasts.
He makes too many errors of fact and too often pats himself on the back for cleverness.
