In the midst of the recent surge of violence in Northern Iraq, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams did his best to push the White House line that President Obama was getting work done during his summer vacation. On Monday, August 11, Williams introduced a segment with Chris Jansing, NBC’s Senior White House Correspondent, by promoting how “the White House is taking pains to stress that even though President Obama is on vacation, it’s a working vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.” Video cross-posted here at NewsBusters.
