Live television can be challenging and fun, as evidenced by MSNBC anchor Brian Williams Tuesday afternoon as he ricocheted around today’s very active news cycle. After discussing the FBI’s decision not to charge Hillary Clinton against the backdrop of Air Force One, which ferried Clinton and President Obama to their joint campaign appearance in Charlotte, North Carolina, Williams tried to toss to Andrea Mitchell at the Charlotte Convention Center.
Instead, Williams was greeted, twice, with a rather amusing technical glitch that seemed to delight both the anchor and MSNBC Trump beat reporter Katy Tur:
That is, indeed, Hall & Oates and not Andrea Mitchell.
Of course it isn’t, Brian. One of them hasn’t had a hit in 30 years. The other is Hall & Oates.
Kidding, but given MSNBC’s position in the cable news ratings landscape, maybe they ought to give the pop duo a try. It couldn’t hurt.
