    If this is correct, he has committed what this journalist considers a heinous crime, he has damaged the reputation of his employer, the media and the profession. As a journalist I would pursue this story to the deepest depths, a full throttle investigation over every story he has ever covered. But then I operate on rules we have here....

    From what I have seen of the US media, this is no big thing. Fox, MSNBC, CNN all have so-called reporters and commentators lying through their teeth, so why should he be singled out?
    Can you name a lie by any other reporter comparable to this whopper?Dan Rather not included.

    Yup. That's what I thought.
    Hey if you want to get your news from a guy that is a compulsive liar and or has no sense of reality that is your choice but please don't vote based on anything he tells you.

    The problem is that his employers are as big of sacks of @#$! as he is.

    He is definitely humiliated, and the more I hear/see/read, the more I think he should be humiliated. This was an obviously disingenuous story.

    I don't watch him much so I don't know if he's done a good job at anchoring. I haven't got any opinion on what NBC should do about him as I said in my first post in this thread. Not my call, not my worry, not only because I'm not his manager, but also because I don't own any shares of his employer's company.

    But if they do eventually remove him or demote him, I would agree with their decision only because he's in the words business, and nothing else. An anchor gets paid to deliver the facts, and deliver them with credibility. Unfortunately he screwed up at that.

    He is the best in that timeslot though.

    He should be forced to suffer the humiliation of seeing his daughter do an oral-anal sex scene. Oh wait...

    I thought he loved it...... Brian Williams watched daughter Allison's 'Girls' sex scenes | Fox News
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It is one thing to be that guy at the tavern bragging about his "experiences" in harm's way but when you do it on national tv it is another story.
    He is just like the vet who likes to embellish to the point of outright lie. Ever so often these guys are outed.

    I would think he would just resign. How in the hell can you face the camera after telling that kind of a lie?

    You know you’re in trouble when Tom Brokaw is out for your blood.

    NBC’s most revered journalist is furious that Brian Williams is still in the anchor chair after he sheepishly admitted he hadn’t traveled on a helicopter hit by enemy fire.

    “Brokaw wants Williams’ head on a platter,” an NBC source said. “He is making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report.”
