Brian Williams on Lay

NBC Nightly News did their little eulogy to Ken Lay yesterday, and they talked about his death while making a brief mention of his recent conviction and his history at Enron.

One thing they forgot to mention? Lay's ties to the president. It's sorta relevant to Lay's history and to our current political situation, dontcha think?

After Lay was convicted, I brought up a Digby quote about the press' desire not to talk about W's ties in all this even back then, and it's only more relevant now:
The fact that the biggest campaign contributor to the occupant of the white house was in charge of the biggest corporate ponzi scheme in history should have been news. It wasn't.
