In all fairness he was in Iraq and a helicopter was hit by an RPG.
Can NBC News now have any credibility with Brian Williams as its face?
If credibility means anything to NBC News, Brian Williams will no longer be managing editor and anchor of the evening newscast by the end of the day Friday.The real question is how the liberal/commie/media has maintained any credibility over the years starting with Walter Cronkite's fabrication that we got our asses handed to us during the Tet offensive, Dan Rather lying about George W. Bush's National Guard service to Candy Crowley running interference for Obama in the debates. The medias contempt for it's viewers couldn't be any plainer.
The admission from Williams Wednesday that he lied about being in a Chinook helicopter that was hit by enemy fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003 is astonishing. And he only admitted the lie after being confronted with it by the military publication, "Stars and Stripes," which has a well-documented report and timeline showing his shifting version of events over the years.
Williams told the lie as recently as Friday.~snip~
Who knows how many we don't know about.
Which is the entire point of Williams being caught in an out and out lie.
These guys set themselves up as not only reporters but the gate keepers of public opinion.
A lot is being written on the why's of Williams deception with most missing the mark entirely. The liberal medias modern existence depends on deception in order to push the liberal/democrat agenda.
Stories like this are an attempt by the ideologically driven to inoculate themselves from criticism for their anti-war,anti-troops sentiment. A way for them to say that they can't be criticized because they too have risked life and limb. We are simply being played by the media.
The good news is that with the internet those who actually know the truth can get it out there calling out the "trusted names in news" and making them accountable. They no longer control the narrative.
