Give Me a Huge Freaking Break

Brian Williams leading off the NBC Nightly News:

Good evening. Because this is a family broadcast, we probably can't say what we'd like to about the news today that Mark McGwire—the home run hitter, the family favorite from the St. Louis Cardinals—stopped lying today and admitted that he did it while on steroids.


Wait what?

This was the lead news story yesterday, and it commanding this level of outrage? Wow.
