CNN’s Brian Stelter told student journalists at the Associated Collegiate Press’ National College Journalism Convention over the weekend: “I think [Brian Williams] can actually revolutionize what we think of as television news if he did it with a little more humor – if he’s willing to call BS BS. …There’s a real opportunity for him to try something new. …I’d love to watch ‘The Daily Show with Brian Williams.'”

Stelter was a last-minute replacement for the late David Carr – “the most influential, most important media reporter of our time.” The “Reliable Sources” host told students that “I wish I wasn’t up here. You guys seem great, and I’m happy to meet you all. But I do wish David was here.”
