    Source w/video: NBCs Tom Brokaw reportedly wants Brian Williams fired over fabricated Iraq helicopter story | Fox News


    Longtime "NBC Nightly News" anchor Tom Brokaw reportedly wants his successor, Brian Williams, thrown out of the big chair after he admitted fabricating key portions of a story he repeatedly told about his reporting experience during the Iraq War in 2003.

    The New York Post, citing sources at the network, reported that Brokaw, 74, has been "making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report."
    . . . . . .

    The problem is we actually still, today, don't have accurate facts about what happened. How far behind was Williams chopper in relation to the CH-47 that was hit by the RPG? Williams, by omission, gives the impression his chopper was right behind the one that got hit, yet, other reports state Williams chopper was 30-60 minutes behind. There is also now conflicting accounts by the supposed pilots... two of them so far. Both admit no RPG yet the one on CNN states that Williams chopper took small arms fire and the other claims Williams chopper was hit by nothing but sand from the sand storm.

    Unfortunately, Williams may have caused more confusion with his reported apology given the gaps and lack of facts.

    No, you made the assertion that "liberals use the military as props". I pointed out the shear absurdity of such a statement considering that the worst examples ever of a president using the military as props was by a Republican. So using the military as props is certainly not something inherit to liberalism.

    As to Brian Williams, I think he should quit.

    Stars and Stripes story - a little more factual but not much.

    Brian Williams' apology draws mixed reviews from mission vets - U.S. - Stripes

    Jessie Ventura is a piece of **** liar...Kyle never claimed to "beat him up", rather that at a gathering in which Ventura was bad mouthing Iraq vets, and current SEAL's, Kyle punched him in the face and that is all....Ventura being the piece of **** liar he is, went after the estate of Kyle even after Kyle's death showing me that he was embarrassed for getting damn near knocked out and wouldn't let it go...He's a loser.

    The other two stories, are third hand accounts that Kyle has never told publicly....So, as unverifiable as they are, it wasn't Kyle that spread them....

    hence to say, to bring that up in the defense of a live liar, Williams, by using the honor of a dead national hero, is just plain sad...And shameful...

    Oh? Would you like to have a pic battle of Obama using military as props...I can tell you this...The military had far more respect in the ranks for Bush, than they do now for Obungle....
