Breaking: NBC's Brian "Lyin" Williams Taken Off Air
The mainstream media lies to us everyday in a myriad of ways, but this one has fallen from grace. Little doubt all will soon be forgiven, so goes the status quo in so-called America Journalism. -W.E.
Brian Williams said on Saturday that he was stepping aside from the daily broadcast of NBC’s “Nightly News” for the next several days, after admitting that he had misled the public about being on a helicopter that was forced down in Iraq.
In a memo to the NBC News staff, Mr. Williams said that Lester Holt, the anchor for “Dateline,” would step in as the network dealt with the issue.
“In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions,” Mr. Williams said in the memo.
He added, “Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us.”
