IT'S "ANCHOR AWAY" FOR BRIAN WILLIAMS
© 2015 MilitaryCorruption.com
A couple days ago, we might have said Brian Williams would weather the storm and retain his anchor chair on NBC Nightly News. Now, we're not so sure.
On Saturday, the pretty boy talking head said he was "stepping down for a few days" because the firestorm of media controversy over embellished or outright false tales of his "derring-do" was becoming too big a "distraction" at NBC.
We think the internal investigation at the network has already turned up more examples of lying and self-aggrandizement. Once the "face of NBC News" has lost his credibility with the viewing public, there is only one way out. The
Williams got in trouble earlier this month when several Army helicopter crewmen told STARS and STRIPES that he was not telling the truth about an incident where - according to Williams - the chopper he was riding in over Iraq in 2003 was hit by enemy ground fire.
ONE LIE AFTER THE OTHER
On the David Letterman Show, Williams expanded on the incident, saying it was an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) that struck his aircraft. In fact, the helicopter commander of the the helicopter Williams was in said the Chinook was not hit at all.
Now, MilitaryCorruption.com and HotAir.com have found a new example of NBC's "Pinocchio" s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g the truth.
Williams told Fairfield University reporter Emily Fitzmaurice in November of 2007 that he "looked down the tube of an RPG launcher that had been fired at us and it hit the chopper in front of ours. I'm so fortunate to be sitting here." he said.
This latest lie, along with the falsehoods from his Katrina coverage in New Orleans we discussed in our previous article (see related stories box below) may just be enough to force NBC to fire the multi-million dollar a year anchorman.
