Why not accept the fact that Kyle was a hero who told a few fish tales?
I automatically described rocks being thrown at us by a hostile crowd. I then related that I was not afraid (of course not) because I had cooly analyzed the trajectories and could see that the rocks would fall short and that the crowd could not get closer because of fence.
In actuality, we got some dirty looks and the small crowd was frustrated with life in general, not hostile to us per se. While some people had stones in their hands and made gestures as if to throw them at us (we were out of range of thrown rocks anyways), nobody actually threw any.
As to why I automatically added the embelishments, I have no idea.

I still stand by my generic feeling that we as a society needs to regain some empathy for our fellow people. Not everything scandalous truly is. This one was/is, though.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
He's a broadcaster and reads the news reports he's fed. I don't think he writes the news stories.
This seems like an embellishment of a story, not a total falsity. But regardless, it wasn't part of, or during, his news show or the news. He got carried away on a talk show, maybe. No big deal to me. He should not be fired.
If it turns out there are other embellishments or false stories, personal or not, he should be fired, since that would mean he has a problem,and his reputation would tank. They need someone with a good reputation of being reliable. One personal story embellishment doesn't affect his reputation much, to me.
Well, he's gone for 6 months. Maybe they can replace him with somebody non-partisan, and completely unbiased and truthful, like maybe Rush Limbaugh, or better yet, Ann Coulter.
