Gibson On Williams’ Latest Trip: “Why The Hell Do You Go To Africa?”

By Brian 

From New York Magazine’s Q&A with Charlie Gibson:

  Will you report from the field as much as NBC’s Brian Williams?

That’s because of Katrina; you saw him going down there. Now he’s in Africa. I don’t know why you do that. Why the hell do you go to Africa? It’s certainly an interesting choice. We’ll do travel, when it warrants.

Will you go to Iraq?


Is that a priority?

Do I consider what’s going on in Iraq a priority? You bet I do. But does that mean you have to go over there every other week? No.
