Brian Williams is floating in water outside of NBC Studios. Williams: I can still see the body floating by my window...
Yeah, I’m going to agree with Jon Stewart on this one. If the MSM had called out the lies leading to the Iraq war to this level, Williams wouldn’t have had a story to lie about.
Both sides lie and yet when their side lies it’s OK but if the other side lies they come unglued.
Perhaps Brian meant to say: I still see the window floating by my body?
Love the shout out to Pogo and his classic line “We have met the enemy, and he is us.”
The truth we wouldn’t tell about the Iraq wars was that we made the mess called Sadam, by supporting him against Iran in the ’80s. No one else was going to clean it up & someone needed to. We also in the ’80s supported al Qaeda & the Taliban against the Soviets. Gotta luv St. Ronnie. Short term fixes with long term job security for the military industrial complex.
Most of the times Williams told the story were when he was on entertainment programs—and he kept making it more and more entertaining each time. Not that there’s any excuse for lying, of course. Actually, there’s no real reason to have a news “anchor” anymore than there’s a reason to have “presenters” give out the Academy Awards. A voice-over could handle these functions quite adequately, announcing the next reporter’s story or the next batch of nominees, and then the winner. But of course, that wouldn’t be entertaining………
