[See NewsBusters for more.] Late night MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Friday cheered the “moral courage” of John McCain and two other Republicans to derail ObamaCare repeal efforts. The journalist also hoped for GOP “heroes” in the mode of Republicans who stood up during Watergate. Narrating McCain’s vote against repeal, Williams touted, “In the well of the Senate, it came down to one very dramatic moment... Much was made of that moment, a moment of moral courage, a man staring down his own mortality yet again.” Not wanting to leave out the other two GOP moderates, he asked former radio host Charlie Sykes: “My question to you: Is that kind of courage, for people cheering them on, going to be contagious?”
