Hat tip Hot Air
This is incomprehensible-until you sit down and consider the utter dishonesty of the mainstream news media.
Last week, NBC news anchor Brian Williams told a story about being in a military helicopter that was hit by ground fire and forced to land during the Iraq invasion. Tonight, after some military veterans who were involved called his account into question, Williams issued an apology.
Here is the problem: Not only has Williams been telling this lie for over a decade, this is not the kind of life experience that you get confused about. If you are in a helicopter that is hit by ground fire in a war zone and forced to land, you remember it distinctly. If you have not had that experience, you don't imagine that you did. Williams has told this fib multiple times until he got called on it.
Just like Hillary Clinton fabricated a story about landing in Bosnia under sniper fire, Williams fabricated this story. Hie credibility as a reporter and news anchor is destroyed.
Now the question is if and how long NBC can keep this fabricator on the air as anchor. If he remains, it tells you volumes about NBC's credibility as a news organization.
