“‘NBC Anchor on Rapegate: ‘I’ve Recused Myself’

Sgt. Schultz would be proud. The comedic “I know nothing, I see nothing,” obedient Nazi soldier from “Hogan’s Heroes” has nothing on CNBC anchorman Brian Williams, who told a Boston talk radio audience Tuesday that he’d rather not know why his own network is keeping Juanita Broaddrick’s bombshell interview on ice.

When WRKO’s Howie Carr pressed Williams for an airdate for Broaddrick, the dapper newsman replied:

“Well, there’s a two-part answer. No. 1 is, in a lawyer-like way, I can safely say that I’ve recused myself from knowing too much about this story. And I hope you can understand that my boss spent an entire day on this matter before he left on a trip for Asia this week.”

Williams’ boss is Andrew Lack, the NBC News chief believed to be holding the Broaddrick blockbuster till Clinton is safely out of the impeachment trial woods.

Williams continued with his own variation of the company line, explaining:

“The story is in play, I think. It’s still on a continuum. I think it’s still being reported. And people should know, and I mean this in all sincerity having covered the Clinton White House for two years, there were hundreds of things you learn that you don’t report because you can’t show germaneness. … They’re searching for germaneness.”

A presidential rape not germane?

Carr then confronted Williams with examples of other stories his network had deemed germane, like a false Today show report based on rumors that Chicago’s Cardinal Joseph Bernardin had molested a boy.

The anchorman explained that NBC didn’t want to make a similar mistake with Broaddrick’s allegation against Clinton.

NBC must have discovered its journalistic conscience very recently, since just weeks ago Williams’ CNBC colleague Geraldo Rivera let investigative pornographer Larry Flynt debut his dirt on Rep. Bob Barr to a national television audience.

Elsewhere on the NBC circuit, Don Imus, whose morning radio show is simulcast on MSNBC, retracted comments made on Monday suggesting that Juanita Broaddrick couldn’t remember when she was assaulted by Clinton.

Imus had been contacted by Broaddrick’s son Kevin Hickey, who complained about erroneous information being spread by NBC sources.”
