Longtime MSNBC host and former “NBC Nightly News” anchor and managing editor Brian Williams signed off after 28 years with the network for the last time at NBC on Thursday evening.   At the conclusion of his nightly MSNBC Show “The 11th Hour” Williams made his on-air goodbye where he expressed concern about the current direction of the nation and warned against extremism in the country.

“The truth is I’m not a liberal or a conservative. I’m an institutionalist,” he said. “I believe in this place and my love of country I yield to no one.

“Every weeknight for decades now, I’ve said some version of the same thing: ‘Thank you for being here with us,'” he concluded. “Us, meaning the people who produce this broadcast for you. And you…Well, without you, there is no us.
