    Brian Williams To Take Leave of Absence

    Brian Williams is going down hard. This is really bad since he voluntarily did this:

    Brian Williams Stepping Away From 'NBC Nightly News' Amid Scandal - The Hollywood Reporter

    I wonder what will happen next
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    He'll run for office and get elected.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't believe the "voluntarily" bit for a moment. He's embellishing again, pretending the fact that his ass is in a sling and NBC has launched an investigation into not only his Iraqi "experiences", but also several other rather dramatic moments involving himself that he's told over the years didn't push him, kicking and screaming, to the edge of a cliff. Once his toes were over the side, and pebbles falling from beneath his feet, he simply said, "All right, I'll jump. But I'm doing it voluntarily."

    I really liked the guy, but no more. I'm dreadfully disappointed in him.

    Katie Couric may take over if he leaves. I like her, she was good on Today show when she was there.

    I am a sleptic here, I think the investigation and steping aside is only for appearances sake. He will be back, NBC has too much invested in him. He just signed a new contract taking him to the end of the decade.

    He may very well be back, he'll just be back with zero credibility and questionable ethics. If that's what NBC wants to project, I wish them well.

    I was going to post that, but it's a really bad tabloid rumor. This would be a bold choice if she is actually in the consideration. Lester Holt is stepping in temporarily now.

    He is a liar, you don't think your chopper was hit with an RPG, and forget. if that happens I bet you don't forget it ever. Come on man. He has no cred. Either can him or admit your news station has no cred.

    Fox Newa will hire him and he will verify the WMD assertions by that network.
