What Else Has Brian Williams Lied About?

February 4, 2015

Now that NBC News anchor Brian Williams has admitted that he lied about being in a helicopter that came under fire in Iraq, isn’t it logical to ask what else he may have lied about?

Stars and Stripes reported…

NBC’s Brian Williams recants Iraq story after soldiers protest

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.

Williams repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters, a game to which Williams accompanied him. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.

The admission came after crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook that was hit by two rockets and small arms fire told Stars and Stripes that the NBC anchor was nowhere near that aircraft or two other Chinooks flying in the formation that took fire. Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter after the other three had made an emergency landing, the crew members said.

This is pretty serious.

Lest you think this is just right wing hype, check out Memeorandum where this is currently the top story. Even left wing outlets like Gawker are calling Williams out.

Hey, does everyone remember back in 2009 when Brian Williams bowed to Obama?
