Flight delays just beginning to emerge today as those budget cuts in Washington begin to hit home."</strong></p><p>Later on the broadcast, Williams again declared the delays to be a sign of "the impact of Washington all across this country" and predicted: <strong>"Now the American people as a whole just might take further notice because now the sequester is responsible for delaying airline flights across this country."</strong></p><p><em>More in the <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2013/04/23/nbcs-williams-hype…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC's NewsBusters blog.</em><strong><br /></strong></p>
