reporter; anchor of NBC Nightly
News on Saturday; anchor of
MSNBC's The News with Brian
"A passionate and out-of-character defense of animals produced our
Moment of the Week this week. It was Thursday on the floor of the House
of Representatives. In the midst of a week that saw close to $10
billion in proposed cuts, House Speaker Newt Gingrich suddenly rose in
defense of a comparatively tiny $800,000. But the cause was apparently
dear to him, preserving endangered animals....Humans, however, didn't
fare that well: funding for the National Endowment for the Arts was
voted out of existence in two years."
-- Anchoring NBC Nightly News, July 15, 1995.
"The religious right is continuing a political offensive it started
a few years ago but there is a growing number of religious people who
find the conservative agenda offensive. NBC'S Bob Abernethy tonight on
the fight of who speaks for whom."
-- NBC Nightly News, May 20, 1995.
"Also here in Washington, there was a rare late-night session for
some in Congress in the effort to make a deal and avoid an impasse on
Medicare. It involved a Republican-led effort in the Senate Finance
Committee to make what some have labelled unkind cuts to trim a
troubled program. In the end the cuts were approved, our report tonight
from NBC's Cassandra Clayton on Capitol Hill."
-- NBC Nightly News, September 30, 1995.
"As far as I'll go describing Bill Clinton is he's perhaps the most
intellectually and physically active person to have held the job in
decades. I've also said that if Americans were paying Presidents by the
thought, we're getting a bargain in this guy because, my God, he's just
always moving, his brain's moving, he hardly sleeps...."
-- CBS's Late Late Show, November 17, 1995.
"The politics of Campaign '96 are getting very ugly, very early.
Today Bob Dole accused the White House of using the FBI to wage war
against its political enemies, and if that sounds like another
political scandal, that's the point."
-- On the FBI files, June 8, 1996 Nightly News.
