Pot, kettle…glass houses, stones.
Now this is rich. Brian Williams, the disgraced ex-NBC journalist who was literally fired for falsely reporting that he was in a helicopter during the Iraq war that took on combatant fire [and that is not the only fake news from this fake newsman], is now going on a crusade against “fake news.” On his MSNBC show last night, Williams decided to attack retired General Flynn and Donald Trump for spreading “fake news” via their twitter accounts.
So, we should probably just ignore that time Williams simply “mis-remembered” being in a helicopter taking on combatant fire when he was actually completely safe in a convoy about an hour away.
“I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another.” – Brian Williams
This pretty much sums it up…
And, of course, more breaking news from Williams’ current employer, the beacon of impartiality and purveyor of “real news,” MSNBC.
