N.H. News Roundup: NBC’s Brian Williams apologizes to the Granite State

So yesterday I linked to NBC’s graphic gaff that made me laugh. New York had absorbed Vermont, and New Hampshire was mislabeled as Vermont.

So last night Brian Williams owned up to the mistake yesterday for NBC. He also listed the great things people should know about the Granite State.

Among those things:

"It's got the best state motto: Live Free or Die."

"It is the home of the First in the Nation Primary."

"New Hampshire has also given us Seth Meyers and Sarah Silverman."

So there's that.
