    Brian Williams

    Curious. Does anyone actually really care about any of this?

    I'm kind of to the point of, look, he lied, fire him and move on. It's driving me crazy that this is "Headline" news.

    I'm just so surprised he lied. I know I shouldn't be, but he just seems so respectable and honest. Naive of me, sure, but I was very surprised about the whole situation.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    I didn't even know about this until like yesterday so it's not just you

    Here's the article:

    Within NBC, an intense debate over whether to fire Brian Williams - The Washington Post

    He lied about being in a helicopter crash over in Afghanistan so essentially his entire credibility is shot. I think there were a few other lies but I'm not 100% sure... Mostly because I don't care but I would just say fire his ass and move on.

    There's also speculation about his tales about Katrina (body floating right by him/rioters-looters in his hotel) and some dating back to the fall of the Berlin wall.

    As for why this is headline news, 2 reasons. 1st other networks are propping up their own anchors by saying LOOK WHAT NBC'S GUY DID!!! and 2nd Its a slow news week.

    . They've been talking a lot about this on the news and I really think it's time to move on.

    Also, there's talk of him possibly taking over for Jon Stewart.

    I was a little shocked too. And it seems to run pretty deep for years that he's been lying. I'm glad they have his suspended and hopefully access thr magnitude of shit he has misrepresented. It's sad and rather pathetic. Hopefully once the investigation is over he can be fired and someone "better" can take his place.

    I wish all of the journalists who lie on air would get the same punishment. It would send some networks right off the air if it did. Wouldn't be sad to see them go.

    I think he's a tool for lying. Other than that, I don't care.
