MEDIA FAIL: NBC’s Williams lies … again

2015_01 30 Brian Williams lies again

Yes, a helicopter was hit by an RPG, but Williams and his camera crew were nowhere near by. Their aircraft arrived at the FOB west of Baghdad some 30 to 60 minutes later, at which time Williams took photos of the damaged chopper.

When Williams’ fairy tale was challenged this week by those men who actually were shot down, Williams said he was “sorry” that he “misremembered” the incident.

How do you “misremember” something like that?!  

Other people would just call this a Big Fat Lie, but for Democrats like Brian Williams, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Anderson Cooper and JFK, it’s okay to be “flexible” about the facts of heroic near death experiences whenever that version of “truth” happens to be convenient for their careers.

  1. While it is technically true that Williams was in ‘a following aircraft,’ he neglected to explain that he was in an aircraft that followed the one hit by RPG fire by an entire hour. The way Williams phrased it, ‘I was instead in a following aircraft,’ makes it sound like he was right behind the copter in question.” -Truth Revolt

      Well, it doesn’t make such a good story to admit the actual truth which was “I saw a helicopter one time that had an RPG lodged in its butt.”
