A lack of understanding of government was evident during the Boston bombing coverage last week, with one notable exception — NBC Correspondent Pete Williams. Before joining NBC, Williams served as the spokesman for the Defense Department. Tom Shoop, editor-in-chief of Government Executive, says Williams' previous government experience helped in his reporting.
