    Yep. Anyone familiar with New Orleans caught onto the Katrina lies immediately. I live less then three hours from there. The entire city was not flooded. It was mostly the ninth ward, which is about 20 feet below sea level. Brian's Hotel was in the French Quarter and on high ground. He did not see any bodies floating by from the Ritz. And there were no cases of dysentery reported anywhere in New Orleans.

    Not attributing to any one poster because I have seen several make the same suggestion.
    Yes. Speculation is that NBC management knew for years that he was telling lies, and did nothing to stop it until they couldn't stop it anymore. If there's truth to that, they have ownership of this, same as he does.

    Yes, they have some culpability in this.

    That's fine, and probably true in and of itself, but that's not the same as "having something on them". This was always out in the open, only nobody noticed. "Having something on them" would be something like Williams having photos that could blackmail the CEO, or whatever.

    I think Lyin Brian should get a job with the administration as the new press secretary, he's obviously qualified.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    Short of a demo miracle I don't see it going well for them in '16 if Obama keeps it up.
