Nancy Snyderman Will Leave NBC News In Wake of Ebola Incident

Dr. Nancy Snyderman, the veteran TV-news medical correspondent who was caught violating the terms of a self-imposed quarantine after being potentially exposed to the Ebola virus last year, said she would step down from her job at NBC News.

What NBC Must Do to Avoid Firing Brian Williams

It wasn’t exactly surprising when Brian Williams announced Saturday that he was vacating the anchor desk at “NBC Nightly News” for the next several days. The scandal now known as Choppergate shows no signs of abating, making his presence a problem at a network that had just announced its intent to conduct an internal investigation.

But what was interesting about Williams’ own declaration was that his timeout was positioned as being of his own volition. “I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast” are his exact words, the subtext of which sends a not-so-subtle message about NBC: The news division doesn’t want to be seen yet as taking any particular action. So Williams’ vacation has been cast as his prerogative.

Nevertheless, NBC News has to take some kind of action sooner than later regarding Williams, and it’s not going to be an easy decision.

Hollywood’s Wussiest Moves of the Year: TheWrap’s Best & Worst 2014
It’s silly to have the expectation that Hollywood could have some sort of courageous or moral center. That’s not the point of TheWrap’s list of Hollywood’s wussiest moves.

But when you consider that networks decided more people would want to watch “The Big Bang Theory,” “Grey’s Anatomy” or “The Biggest Loser,” than President Barack Obama’s landmark immigration speech in November, then you have to wonder if Hollywood and the media should at least be called out for their questionable decisions.

Watch: Dr. Nancy Snyderman Apologizes for Breaking Ebola Quarantine

Snyderman agreed to a voluntary 21-day quarantine upon returning to the U.S., which she later violated, leading the state of New Jersey to issue a mandatory quarantine.

“I’m very sorry for not only scaring my community and the country but adding to the confusion of terms that came as fast and furious as the news about Ebola did,” she told Lauer. “When I came back from Liberia with my team, we had already been taking our temperatures four, five six times a day, and we knew our risks in our heads — but didn’t really appreciate, and frankly,
