Brian Williams: It’s ‘Our Job’ to ‘Scare People to Death’ over North Korea (Mediaite)

On Tuesday night, MSNBC’s Brian Williams made a rather stunning admission while discussing the latest tensions with North Korea with his panel.

After Andrea Mitchell explained the high risks of the United States acting preemptively, The 11th Hour host said this to MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance:

“Malcolm, our job tonight is to actually scare people to death on this subject so the talk isn’t as free as it is about a preemptive or a surgical military strike. You know that part of the world. The population centers, Andrea and the General [Barry McCaffrey] have talked about, South Korea, the Japanese, and so on and so on.”
