NBC News Anchor Brian Williams Caught Lying About Helicopter Incident During Iraqi War Coverage
NBC News anchor Brian Williams admits fabricating a story about a military helicopter on which he was being transported 12 years ago during his faux news coverage of the Iraqi War coming under enemy fire. Williams had to come clean when a flight engineer on the helicopter called him out. That's the smallest of lies the defense industry-owned network has told to the American people over the past several decades. It reminds me of Hillary Clinton making up a lie about a plane on which she was flying supposedly coming under fire during a landing in Bosnia. She was called out for the gross misrepresentation by a reporter who was aboard the plane at the time, namely NBC's Andrea Mitchell, whose network was supporting Barack Obama's presidential campaign at the time.
