NBC News President Deborah Turness just sent a memo to staffers at the network over the Brian Williams scandal. Three points of interest:

*Internal investigation. A probe is afoot, as Turness mentioned: “As you would expect, we have a team dedicated to gathering the facts to help us make sense of all that has transpired. We’re working on what the best next steps are – and when we have something to communicate we will of course share it with you.”

*More meae culpae. Williams apologized “once again” for his misdeeds to his colleagues, and “specifically expressed how sorry he is for the impact this has had on all of you and on this proud organization.”

*Non-endorsement. In a tough time like this, with his career in question, Williams would love to see a sentence saying something along the lines of We continue to have the greatest confidence in Brian, he is No. 1, and so on.

Memo:

All,

This has been a difficult few days for all of us at NBC News.

Yesterday, Brian and I spoke to the Nightly News team. And this morning at the Editorial Exchange, we both addressed the wider group. Brian apologized once again, and specifically expressed how sorry he is for the impact this has had on all of you and on this proud organization.

As you would expect, we have a team dedicated to gathering the facts to help us make sense of all that has transpired. We’re working on what the best next steps are – and when we have something to communicate we will of course share it with you.

Since joining NBC News, I’ve seen great strength and resilience. We are a close-knit family, and your response this week has made that even clearer.

As a relentless news agenda marches on, thank you again for continuing to do what we do best – bring the most important stories of the day to our audience.

Deborah
