    NBC's Tom Brokaw reportedly wants Brian Williams fired over fabricated story

    NBC's Tom Brokaw reportedly wants Brian Williams fired over fabricated Iraq helicopter story
    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."

    Yet something tells me he will still vote for Hillary "sniper fire Clinton in 2016. But he is right, Williams should go, if not for the lie itself then for the BS apology he gave.

    Beat me to it.

    I was going to suggest he run for president.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    This sort of outright fabrication from liberals should be no surprise in this day and age....Liberals use the military as props, instead of giving them the respect they deserve....Plus just one more ding in the weekly NBC/MSNBC mistake making apology reel....

    Conservatives respect the military by sending them off to die in pointless wars.

    Everybody fabricates stories these days, Im not defending Williams (who I think is just another media dweeb) but even Chris Kyle fabricated stories yet people praise him as a hero.

    Suspend Williams for a week or two. That would be a just punishment.

    This episode has become a feeding frenzy for the right wing as it gives them a long awaited opportunity to go after the hated NBC. I seriously doubt if their idols like Limbaugh or O'Reilly had done something similar they would be drooling for the career death penalty the way they are for Williams.
