Brian Williams did an embarrassingly awful job of interviewing a child during his Haiti reportage last night. (People also kept asking for help to carry dead bodies, which no one at NBC seemed to do.) What else did he do wrong?

After clips of Haitians begging for water, and a voice-over that reports water is more valuable than money, he’s shown swinging a water bottle before tucking into his pocket. Asshole? It’s kind of astounding.
