The Brian Williams Fiasco Is Worsening – More Possible “Fake Stories” Surface…

brian williams 3Things are going from bad to worse for NBC Anchor Brian Williams. Yesterday a report surfaced which claimed a pilot remembered taking small arms fire while Williams was on board, this report was used by those who defended Williams. However, that pilot has now walked back his story saying his memory was wrong and he probably didn’t have Williams on the flight.

…[…] “On Friday morning, Krell told me that “the information I gave you was true based on my memories, but at this point I am questioning my memories.”… (link)

Now reports are surfacing which show Brian Williams may have made up significant parts of his stories around his post-Hurricane Katrina Coverage; and NBC news executives are embarrassingly concerned the credibility of the entire network might be moments away from complete collapse. Apparently Tom Brokaw has long known of Williams propensity for exaggerating stories.

CNN’s Brian Stelter reports: “Things are going from bad to worse

BRIAN-WILLIAMS-largeNEW YORK – You know you’re in trouble when Tom Brokaw is out for your blood.

NBC’s most revered journalist is furious that Brian Williams is still in the anchor chair after he sheepishly admitted he hadn’t traveled on a helicopter hit by enemy fire.

“Brokaw wants Williams’ head on a platter,” an NBC source said. “He is making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report.”

Brokaw, 74, was still the “Nightly News” anchor when Williams came back from his Iraq expedition — and an insider said he knew the story Williams later spouted was bunk.

“Tom Brokaw and [former NBC News President] Steve Capus knew this was a false story for a long time and have been extremely uncomfortable with it,” the source said. (read more)

brian williams 2ALSO – More heroic tales of Brian Williams‘ adventures in journalism are being questioned.

The NBC news anchor, who apologized Wednesday for telling a false story about taking fire in a helicopter while covering Iraq, is being called out for possibly lying about his experience covering Hurricane Katrina, according to a report.

Williams claimed to have gotten dysentery from drinking floodwater and seeing dead bodies float past his hotel in the New Orleans French Quarter while covering Hurricane Katrina.

However, the The New Orleans Advocate noted that the French Quarter was not flooded and quoted a local health expert who did not recall anyone getting such a stomach ailment.

Williams recalled his bout with the bug in an interview with Tom Brokaw last year, when he said: “I accidentally ingested some of the floodwater. I became very sick with dysentery.”

The Advocate said a public health official never heard of people getting things like dysentery after the storm.

“I don’t recall a single, solitary case of gastroenteritis during Katrina or in the whole month afterward,” Dr. Brobson Lutz told The Advocate.  (read more)

    I think the fact that NBC is covering for this guy bothers me much worse. Demonstrates how deep-seated the lies have become in the MSM.

      “NBC can report tonight that it was actually the Koch Brothers who are behind this terrible, terrible injustice inflicted on Nightly News anchor, Brian Williams. It seems that these right-wing brothers have used their vast wealth and influence to manipulate the collective memory of mankind just in order to discredit the last remaining servant of justice, truth and journalistic integrity, Brian Williams.

      “Ever since Brian Williams uncovered the plot to bomb Pearl Harbor by the German Luftwaffe working in conjunction with the Jehovah’s Witnesses, he has been on the forefront of cutting-edge news. Just last week, Williams’ super-hearing detected a kitten in distress, and ducking into a nearby phone booth….”

        If NBC is like Govt, they never fire Failures, Losers, or Clowns. They promote them.

        Why is that? It is easier to dump them – someplace else and on someone else – than to go through very lengthy process of firing them. Process than can take a year, and if steps aren’t followed the process has to be restarted. During process if Failure, Loser, or Clown improves or goes without screwing up for a few months, process is aborted.

        Libmama, I bought two red bricks in a box from a couple Urban-type fellas on Boylston St. in Boston once, when I was like 19, working as a doorman/concierge/valet/etc. For $60. Thought it was a Handycam VHS recorder. It was actually two red bricks in a box, wrapped with a local big-box-store advertisement for a Handycam.

        I saved those bricks. Most expensive book-ends I had in my early 20’s.

        Never got scammed again, either. I had to take it quick, as a doorman, and get it back to the breakroom unnoticed, and couldn’t unwrap and open my new Handycam until the end of the shift. My mind convinced me, by the end of the shift, that I had been scammed. Thinking about it all day long. Went back, saw that the wrapping was just a newspaper ad, and laughed at myself.

        But I kept the bricks.

    maybe they tell him to spout these whoppers to make him seem more trustworthy or something. others have mentioned that NBC execs knew he was lying about the Iraq helicopter shooting (while he was supposedly on board). if others knew about his lies, the question is – why did the lies come apart NOW?

    btw – when his daughter got that peter pan starring role, i wondered what he did and for whom to secure that for her. not sure how that relates to the lies, but it just seemed quite the coincidence that his daughter (whom I never heard of) would land a pretty big role like that.

    2) Why now? (Instead of years ago)
    3) Who did Brian Williams P.O.? (Obamas, Clintons, Soros, NAACP, CAIR, …)
    4) Isn’t it risky to throw Williams under bus? (Being he knows where some Skeletons are)
    5) Is this a Warning shot at other Pravda Talking heads? (Carry O’s water & stay inline or else…)
    6) Is this not a dangerous path to start down? (Sheep might start questioning O’s Lying)

    Some of above may seem obvious or already “answered”. However, after watching Democrat Regime in action, nothing is what it seems.

    If the owner of the doughnut shop makes up lies about his wartime escapades, then nobody cares. It only matters if he makes good doughnuts.

    BTW, for those of you who hate the liberal media and/or hate NBC, you should probably be rooting for Williams to save his job. Firing Williams restores some credibility. Keeping him does the opposite.
