Brian Williams thinks pulled pork is Texas barbecue

Bryan Williams

During MSNBC’s Super Tuesday coverage, Brian Williams asked Chris Matthews to bring him some pulled pork, which isn’t Texas barbecue (beef brisket is.)

As Ken Shepherd of Newsbusters points out, even Rachel Maddow knew better:

For her part, it appears fellow MSNBCer Rachel Maddow, who hails from California, quickly and politely corrected him.

Williams made the slip up shortly before 9:30 Eastern tonight as he joked that Chris Matthews, who’s in the Lone Star State, should “help a brother out” and “please FedEx some pulled pork, some cornbread, and beans. I’d appreciate it.”
