On MSNBC's 11th Hour, Williams and guest, New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay, discussed a tweet claiming Bloomberg could've given each American $1 million from the $500 million he spent on ads, and still have money left over without noticing it was wrong. Of course, $500 million divided by 327 million Americans is $1.53 each. Williams later corrected the mistake on-air. Gay joked about the flub on Twitter this morning, tweeting: "Buying a calculator, brb."
