MSNBC Fighting Back the Emotions
While the election of America's first African-American President was a special time for our country, the folks at MSNBC were quick to share their own personal feelings about the day's event.
"I think the hardest thing is, is not getting emotional because it is such an emotional morning, you just want to, you want to laugh, you want to cry," declared Meredith Vieira.
Matt Lauer, who has since been fired by NBC for being an alleged sexual predator, told his colleagues:
I was gonna say it's at a moment like this, as we get set to hand it off to you folks, what great jobs we have. You have to stop and think about the privilege that we all have this morning and you'll have for the next several hours to bring this story, in some way, to the American people because this is a rare opportunity and to, and to have a seat, even though we're in the studio. There's Magic Johnson right there.
