military publication, "Stars and Stripes," which has a well-documented report and timeline showing his shifting version of events over the years.

SNIP

Really, if this was 10 or 15 years ago, an anchor at any network would be gone by Friday after an admission of such deception - especially when it is placed alongside the sacrifices made and pains suffered by military personnel and their families.

How could you expect anyone who served in the military to ever see this guy onscreen again and not feel contempt? How could you expect anyone to believe he or the broadcast he leads has any credibility?

I wonder how the newsroom Williams is supposed to be leading will look at him tomorrow morning when he arrives for work.

Brian Williams faces fierce mockery after recanting Iraq war story
Washington post ^ | 2/4/2015 | By Dan Lamothe
Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:46:29 AM EST by tobyhill

NBC News anchor Brian Williams faced swift, and often harsh and sarcastic, reaction Wednesday after he recanted a story that he was aboard an Army helicopter that was hit with enemy fire in Iraq and forced to land.

The longtime NBC News journalist apologized in an interview with Stars & Stripes, saying he had “misremembered” what happened. He was actually in another nearby helicopter.

“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.”

The story drew immediate scorn online, where critics — including veterans and retired baseball star Curt Schilling — questioned how it would have been possible to make that mistake.

There will be more of these "misremembers" because it's time for the media liars to clear the air and get ready for the Hillary Show.

This won’t go away until he either resigns/retires or he recants his recant. He didn’t misremember. It is patently absurd to believe it was his memory playing tricks on him.

He outright lied. He lied because he and others like him lie regularly to the population at large in their so-called trusted stewardship of the “truth.” That perhaps is the biggest lie of all.

I’ve detested this POS since he apologized for the obvious grimace when announcing W had won in 2000.

These commissars aren’t even hiding their contempt for us anymore.

As well he should! Whatever little credibility NBC News had, this blows it out of the water. No way he survives in his current position.

“Fake but accurate” - didn’t Dan Rather get into some pretty deep waters with this approach to the news?

And what about Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, ducking “enemy fire” upon her arrival in Bosnia in 1996.

Just trying to give snipers a bad name. Herself was NEVER in any danger.

Musta been the same guys who were shooting at Brian Williams who shot at Hillary as she stood on the tarmac in a receiving line in Bosnia.

They’ve largely gotten away with these constant lies before because they controlled the bulk of what Americans see on TV and read in print (when they read).

With the spread of the internet and decline of MSM’s influence, these lies aren’t as easy to hide any more.

Whenever his name is mentioned, wherever, it should be appended with Proven Liar.

It is fascinating to see the double standard at work. Williams is liberal, so this will be swept under the rug. If a conservative commentator did it, it would be a topic 24/7 until the person resigned or offed themselves.

I’ve seen it on this site, especially soon after it happened; it was strange, as though someone in the studio had to point out to him how obvious his bias was. When they cut back to him after a break, he apologized for it.

Ask the Ferguson witnesses (who got away with outright falsifying reports); some even admitted later that they weren’t even present (after swearing to Brown’s coldblooded execution by Officer Wilson)...

true... I've watched a lot of MSNBC.  At least 100% of their hosts have lied about being in crashed wartime helicopters.  Williams is no outlier, they've all faked at least one aircraft crash under enemy fire.  

I think MSNBC host Michael Steele is probably the worst - he actually denied a 2008 crash in which a windbag grizzly bear actually brought down the USS Mccain with him onboard at the time.

Similar to Hillary Clinton's lie:

Hillary Clinton said last week: "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

On March 25, 2008, Hillary Clinton said that she and her daughter, Chelsea, were shot at in Bosnia in 1996. After the claims were disputed, Clinton said she has a “different memory” of the events that occurred.

NBC reportedly allowing Brian Williams to stay but not as 'Nightly News' anchor
Published June 17, 2015
FoxNews.com


Jan. 10, 2010: Brian Williams from "NBC Nightly News" answers a question during the panel for NBC News at the NBC Universal sessions of the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif. (Reuters)

NBC reportedly is allowing embattled journalist Brian Williams to stay but not as “Nightly News” anchor, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

Current fill-in anchor Lester Holt is expected to fill the lead anchor position permanently, media reports said.

The report comes just four months after the company suspended Williams for exaggerating a story about an incident involving his aircraft while covering the Iraq War.

According to the New York Post, Williams' agent Bob Barnett, NBC Universal CEO Steve Burke and NBC News chairman Andy Lack hammered out a deal, amid speculation that Williams could walk away from the network completely.

"There is an agreement. Brian won't return to the anchor chair but agreed to a different news-oriented role,' an insider told the New York Post. "The negotiations have been complicated and difficult."

Williams’ precise role still remains unclear, although according to the New York Times, Williams is expected to work at the cable news network MSNBC.

A source told the Post that Williams' role "is something very different, but within news, that gives Brian room to grow and rebuild his reputation."

The Post reported that it is not immediately clear how much of Williams' $50 million contract would be honored by NBC.

NBC could announce the change as early as Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported.

When Brian williams lies, his anchor job is given to lester holt.

When Bill OReilly lies, well, nothing happens.

Very odd that NBC has higher journalistic standards than FOX News.
