Reassign NBC's Pete Williams

By Dan Carol
Huffington Post

Ok, so it's weird enough to see Tim Russert acting as prosecutor and witness-in-waiting in the CIA Leak case, but I think it's time to ask former Bush 41 DOD chief press flack Pete Williams to take a bow out from actively covering the story which involves his old boss Dick Cheney and former DOD colleague Scooter Libby.

It is past absurd isn't it -- to see him grilling Patrick Fitgerald on Friday wondering how we should take the word of three reporters "versus the vice president's chief of staff."

Like this guy's take on the case isn't biased?

In May, Williams had this to say about Patrick Fitgerald: "He has broken a great deal of china in going through his investigation so far..."

On Tim Russert's CNBC show over the weekend, Williams was on the reporter's panel challenging David Gregory time after time when Gregory actually dared to say something.

Was Pete Williams the guy who hooked his boss Tim Russert into the Valerie Plame story in the first place? I don't know. Here's hoping that my friends at Media Matters can perhaps carry the ball here to develop the full weight of how sneaky Pete has been.

This Pete guy is also a regular guest on "Washington Week" with Gwen Ifill on PBS. I'm so sick of all the inbreeding in our news programs recently.

I'm going to write a letter to Gwen Ifill about this.

p.s. .there was always something about that guy that bugged me. I thought it was the obvious "rug" he wears on the top of his head, but now I'm seeing past the "doo".
