    Regardless of your personal feelings about the network. Who would be a good choice to replace Williams? I like Lauer for the job, but if they want to be bold, they should actually consider Couric herself.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    What if Brian Williams gets fired? The world will still turn, life will go on and Hannity will still troll for dicks in the mens room.

    Why should he be fired. Hillary Clinton lied about taking cover from fire and she got to be SoS and if we have to endure the misfortune, she'll be our next president, too!

    I don't really care either way, I don't watch him. The problem is the damage done to his credibility, not just with regard to his false claim, but his "apology" was no better, claiming some sort of false memory. It calls into question everything else he claimed he experienced like a floating body during Katrina and the dysentery he claims to have suffered as a result of ingesting some flood water.

    Dont care much. Mainstream media is driven by sensationalism and bs anyways. Dont care much about whoever reads the scripted sensationalized bs.

    I heard the pilot of the chopper that Williams was in interviewed who said that the chopper was taking small arms fire but hadn't been hit by an RPG? Seems we have more important things on the stove right now at any rate.

    Re: What If Brian Williams Gets Fired?

    I've always liked the guy... but unlike politicians, whose job it is to exaggerate their own accomplishment while pimping for votes, Brian Williams is a journalist. All a journalist has are his ethics and his credibility. He has lost both, and now previous "exploits" he has bragged about are under extremely strict scrutiny.

    I now believe that the same thing that made Williams shoot to the top... his ability to spin a spellbinding tale of his experience in current war zones/disaster areas... will be his downfall, since those tales can no longer be believed. If he worked for me, I'd fire him on the spot.

    As for who should replace him, I could not possibly care less.

    What does it mean?

    That we hold our journalists to higher ethical standards than our own damned president [who was an admitted abuser and drug dealer].

    Lester Holt would probably be the best choice, if he wants the job. Bob Costas would be my second choice.
