Is it his clean shave? His crooked smile?
Whatever it is, there's something about NBC Nightly News anchorman Brian Williams that terrifies a 10-month-old baby named Jude McGuire.
Jude's dad Jordan McGuire posted this video to YouTube, which has gone viral. He named it "My 10mo son hates brian williams."
"This is a video of my son...we hate to do it, but anytime brian williams comes on the tv he starts screaming until we turn it off," writes McGuire.
To prove that point, McGuire tapes Jude watching President Barack Obama and NBC reporter Chuck Todd on the news. The baby watches quietly. Then Williams is back on the screen and Jude is immediately upset.

People magazine and the "Today" show are adopting a policy against using unauthorized photos of celebrity kids, thanks to celebrity parents like Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard.
The famous couple launched a campaign last month against the paparazzi (or pedorazzi, as they call them). They are tired of photographers hounding their family to take photos of their daughter Lincoln, who turns 1 in March, without their consent. The "Veronica Mars" actress has been using social media to get the word out, posting tweets like this and using the hashtag #NoKidsPolicy:
And she has vowed to boycott media, as evidenced by this tweet:
I wont do interviews 4 entities that pay photogs to take pics of my baby anymore. I care more about my integrity & my values than my career.— Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) January 27, 2014

Israeli fashion model Bar Refaeli posted on Instagram this baby photo of herself as a tot with an unlit cigarette dangling from her mouth.
The 28-year-old Sports Illustrated model captioned the photo, "I swear they raised me well," referring to her parents.
What do you think of the photo?
Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox named their new baby, born Feb. 12, Bodhi Ransom. Do you think they took inspiration from American ski racer Bode Miller, who competed in Sochi this month? Though the names are spelled differently, they are pronounced the same (boh-dee).
Nope. It looks like the Greens instead liked the meaning behind the name, according to reports.
Bodhi is a Buddhism-inspired name. It means awakened or enlightenment. And Ransom means warrior's shield (Oh, and for what it's worth, Bode Miller's full name is actually Samuel Bode Miller).
Learn more about baby Bodhi in the Splash News video below.
From the family that brought us "Christmas Jammies," we now have "Snow Day: The Musical," a musical depiction of parents' agony when school is canceled and kids want to sled and play all day.

You've probably seen a blog post called "A Letter From a Working Mother to a Stay-At-Home Mother, and Vice Versa" by Dr. Carolyn Ee on the blog "the healthy doctor" in your Facebook feed this week. The post has gone viral.
In the post, Ee, an Australian doctor and working mother of a four-year-old daughter and baby son, writes two letters -- one for stay-at-home moms from the working mom's point of view, and the other for working moms from a stay-at-home mom's point of view. It is obviously a topic that hits close to home, since in the introduction area of her blog, she writes, "I constantly grapple with balancing 'work', 'life' and being a mother."
Here are some excerpts from her post.
"Working Mum" writes the following, in part, to "Stay-At-Home Mum":
I know you do unpaid work, often thankless work, which starts the moment you wake up, and doesn’t even end when you go to sleep. I know you work weekends and nights, with no discernible end to your day or working week. I know the rewards are joyous but few.FULL ENTRY
Parents in Sonora, Mexico, can no longer choose the name Facebook or Circumcision for their babies.
Yes, that was happening.
The state has legislated a ban on a total of 61 names. Also on the list: Lady Di, Rambo, and Martian.
"The law is very clear because it prohibits giving children names that are derogatory or that don’t have any meaning and that can lead to bullying,” said Sonora state Civil Registry Director Cristina Ramirez to the Associated Press.
