Brian Williams: You Should Trust My Reportage Because of All the "Sand Snakes" (Ground to Air Missiles) I've Had to Personally Dodge to Deliver the News to You | Main | Overnight Open Thread (2-4-2015)

It Was Just That One Time, Your Honor

In his fake lying non-apology, Williams implied -- he all but flat-out affirmed -- that he had only told his "shot down in Iraq" story a single time, in order to honor a dead general.

The Lie he admits to telling (calling it a "mistake") is in the video below.



But then What's This?


So... he has been telling this lie for a long, long time, just like the soldiers said he was, huh?

And so he lied to us again, huh?

And... in the 2003 NBC story, the headline ran:


Brian Williams was presumably a or the main source for this story.

Gee, he sure seems to have claimed to have been in a shot-down helicopter a whole lot more than once, huh?

He's been making this claim consistently since 2003. Twelve straight years of lying about it.

Or, as he puts it: "Misremembering" in order to pay tribute to a dead general.

Apparently the general once said to him, "Brian, if the Lord should ever call me home, I want you to do the things I never got to do -- especially Lying. It seems like so much fun, Brian. Lies are like the music of dreams. So when you pay tribute to me upon the event of my death and, ideally, dozens of times before then, I want you to Lie Like the Wind and claim to have been in a Chinook that was shot down by an Iraqi RPG. Do this for me, Brian. Do it for your General Buddy Pal."

So how could he have refused?
