Brian Williams Caught in Lie

NBC News anchor Brian Williams is possibly the premier (i.e., most readily identifiable) representative of the liberal establishment media. To achieve such a lofty position, you need more than expensively coiffed hair and a pretentious mien. You need to be really good at telling lies:

Williams conceded on Wednesday that a story he had told about being under fire while covering the invasion of Iraq in 2003 was false.

Williams said he was not aboard a helicopter that was hit by enemy fire and forced down — a story he retold as recently as last week during a televised tribute to a retired soldier during a New York Rangers hockey game.

On “NBC Nightly News” Wednesday evening, Williams read a 50-second statement apologizing for his characterization of the episode.

It wasn’t a guilty conscience that caused Williams to cough up his stolen valor.

Williams’s apology came after the Stars and Stripes newspaper contacted crew members of the Chinook helicopter that Williams had said he was aboard when it was hit by two rockets and small-arms fire. They said that Williams was not aboard the aircraft during the incident at the onset of the war in March 2003. They said Williams arrived on another, undamaged helicopter an hour after the crippled Chinook had landed.

“I would not have chosen to make this mistake,” Williams told the newspaper. “I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another.”

I do. He didn’t happen to forget that he wasn’t on a helicopter when it was hit by rockets. He lied.

Don’t waste our time with lame apologies, Brian. Just tell the truth for once. Say the words: “I lied.”

If you’re drinking something, swallow it down before you read the next part, or you will have a monitor to clean:

At least in the short term, the false story may damage the anchor’s most valuable asset — his credibility.

Did I mention that Williams works for NBC News? His colleagues include Andrea Mitchell and Al Sharpton, which answers this question from highly esteemed baseball great Curt Schilling:

    NBC should put up a big blackboard on it and make Williams write I LIED – 500 times. All While on air. Then fire him all while on air. That might give the doofuses at NBC something to think about before they lie. Well, I’m not actually sure about that.

    Telling porky-pies like that in grammar school would have had him standing in front of the class all morning, arms outstretched, holding a bible in one hand and a dictionary in the other.

    Its like when OBlame-0 talking to George Stephanopolous and saying “my islamic faith.” He was then corrected by George who prompted him “you mean your Christian faith.” Oh, yeah, he replied–“My Christian faith.” How may times have you said a similar thing. “When I was a kid I remember the whole family sitting around the menorah, telling family stories–OOPS I mean sitting around the Christmas tree singing carols.” How many times does that happen to you?

    Same thing with Williams.

    They lie because they can, no one is going to call them on it as long as they are towing the liberal line. It took 12 years to uncover William’s lie and he still won’t admit it was anything but a false memory. Can you imagine what would happen if Rush Limbaugh tried something like this?

    it was probably all the gay orgies he’s had with 0bama the marxist/dems, and the full frontal lobotomy (which is mandatory for lefties/dems/progressives/communists)
    this explains why Dems policies never bear fruit… and also why they are all braindead idiots.

    This was the man who, last month, said he was on set and watched his very own daughter film an explicit porn scene involving aberrant and dangerous sex acts for an HBO series. His reaction? He thought it was cool. HIS VERY OWN DAUGHTER!!! How much more of a degenerate can a person be? He is human filth.

    When you see him, always remember that thought it was cool to watch his daughter film porn and prostitute herself. NEVER FORGET WHAT HE DID WITH HIS DAUGHTER.

    That he has been living this stolen-valor lie for more than a decade is no surprise.

    Get him off the air.

    And keep him away from children.

    He called this false story a “mistake”. A mistake is something accidental, unintentional or unforeseen. This was a willful act. That he has been living this stolen-valor lie for more than a decade is no surprise.

    Get him off the air. Boycott NBC News advertisers until he is fired.

    And keep him away from children.

    That’s nothing, I was on a Puff the Magic Dragon gunship that took fire from the Viet Cong in 1969. Of course I wasn’t on it until 1995 at an airshow at Peterson AFB in Colorado but it is closer than Brian was to the action.
