This thread is not about Presidents, or politicians. This is about Brian Williams and what could happen to him. Thanks to those for answering the question, I was hoping for a little bit more debate over the names of the people who might replace him. Williams is perhaps the most famous journalist in TV at the moment. He is of course held to a higher standard than others. For those that don't care. Just pick and choose your favorite news site and/or blogger. If they lied about something like this, wouldn't you care because you held those up to a higher standard than everyone else?
He's been lying about one of his helicopters being blown up under fire since at least 2003 while covering the war. Problem is he was in a chopper an hour behind and he didn't even get hit. I have friends in the army who remember with great detail each and every time they were under fire. There is a disease called PTSD that makes people relive these moments long years after the fact. He lied and then he lied in his silly apology. You might confuse facts about the mission and the timeline of events that happened especially if you have bad PTSD. But you won't mistake if you had been there or not!
