Hmm. This mistake could be misconstrued as a lie.
wow, seems like he did this just to be "famous"
Yeah, this is not a mistake. That is a flat out lie........
Agreed. Sure, we believe you just got the two helicopters mixed up Brian.
If NBC's next musical is Pinocchio he can have the lead.
Brian Wilson was with Hillary Clinton when she was caught in sniper fire in Bosnia. (sarcastic)
I guess big fat lies aren't just for politicians.
It's was possibly a mind fart. I once told some friends of an experience I had but then my wife reminded me that the experience was hers and years before she had told me about it. When I told it, I thought it was my memory, a Total Recall moment.
Politicians and pundits are prevaricating plagiarists.
Was he singing to her?
I've never been in an aircraft that was shot down before so I have no relevant experience on this but I'm betting I could remember the difference between being in one that was shot down and one that wasn't. And my memory is pretty bad sometimes! In fact, I have hundreds of memories of being in airplanes that were never shot down.
Yeah he thought he could get away with it.
Maybe 15 years ago before social media was so prominent.
A bad move on his part, creditability is everything in the news business at his level.
That was no brain fart. It was an outright lie, first propagated to Tim Russert in 2005, on his blog a few years later, and again on the David Letterman show. And who knows how many times in private to his cohorts.
I always saw Brian Williams as a "trustworthy" media figure.
Why do people ruin their reputations like this?
Because none of them are trustworthy and we're really on our own in truth finding. It sounds cynical, I know, but how many times do we need to get burned before we wise up?
Who is Brian Williams, and why do we care what tall tales he does or does not tell?
He's a big fat liar which is typical for the lame stream media.
The fog of war.
Yes, but surely he must have known this could easily get out.
Well yes, I don't really trust no one in the media, but he seemed to be pretty good compared to many others.
He announced he is stepping down temporarily.
I hope he steps down permanently. How can anyone trust him now?
This maybe the first step in which he will be removed on a permanent-bases.
because they are human and we all try to make ourselves took better. If no one here has made a story about themselves look better then you can throw stones.
Point taken. Then again, most of us are not journalists who supposedly hold themselves to a stricter set of values and ethics that include reporting facts not manipulating them or fabricating for self gain at any level.
