    True. But Kyle wasn't paid to deliver facts via television. Williams is.

    His claimed kills are almost double his confirmed kills, too.

    That happens when they cannot be confirmed. Sometimes moving targets are wounded but will probably die depending on where they were hit. Chuck Mawhinney for example has 103 confirmed and 216 probable in Vietnam. It's pretty standard to have a confirmed number and a probable number.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I have no idea what I posted. Williams wasn't interviewing for a job. I'm posting on topic - if you want to engage me, please do the same.

    By the way, no, I haven't padded my resume. I don't have any need to.

    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."

    Liberal news casters are turning on each other?
    Trying to regain / maintain any shred of journalistic integrity that may have left?

    Right. Because that is surely the same as lying to a national audience on tv while claiming to be a person that tells America the news. ((rolls eyes))

    So his sin is in the number of people he bigged himself up to.

    it not like Williams is tarnishing a legacy of veracity. After all Brokejaw was one of the Gore Fluffers who did everything possible to steal the 2000 election for Gore
