Brian Williams: My Ego Made Me Do It…..

brian williams msnbc(USA TODAY) Brian Williams, in his first public comments since losing his NBC Nightly News anchor chair in a major demotion, apologized for telling inaccurate stories about his experiences and said such misstatements were “clearly ego driven.”

“I am sorry,” a subdued Williams told Today‘s Matt Lauer in interviews carried out over two days this week. “I am sorry for what happened. I am different as a result and I expect to be held to a different standard.”

Excerpts were broadcast Friday morning on Today.

After a six-month internal investigation, NBC announced Thursday that the veteran newsman would not be reinstated as the anchor of the Nightly News and, instead, would be slotted for anchoring breaking news and special reports on NBC’s sister cable network MSNBC, a huge comedown for a highly paid star.

    “I am sorry for what happened.”
    Not I am sorry I lied. More like I am sorry I got caught.
    What a waste of time for a non-apology!

    Progressives get recycled when found to have behaved unethically or criminally, conservatives lose their livelihood.

    Why is it that people that say they should held responsible never “fire” themselves from a high paying job?
