My vote is to close this one. What good discussion can come of it. I don't care for him but don't see this as a good topic for the forum. It is going to get close to political in my opinion.

Two thing's a person will remember his entire life. First, is the first time he comes under fire, and second is the first time you put the sights on a human being with your finger squeezing the trigger. This man? told a bald face lie. End of discussion.

He should be fired. These are the "journalists" who are presenting the "facts" about world events. They have no credibility. I'm disgusted. All of us knew when the Brian Williams of this world showed up in theater they weren't to be trusted and they would never get it right. God bless our military people who truly lay their life on the line everyday. When I think about some of our American' sleeping in a "fighting hole" or in a cramped rack on a tenth month deployment standing six and six, I can not imagine a person like Brian Williams lying to a nation about being even on the same level as these Americans.

Why is this considered politics ?
It's a main stream celebrity who is in the news

It's not. However some posts that were removed were.

This is another example of the credibility of the main stream media. How are we to believe much of what is reported?
The MSM tends to sensationalize way too much in the name of ratings, and herein lies the problem. It is a very slippery slope from sensationalizing the news to outright fabrication of the news, and Brian Williams got completely lost on that slope.
My opinion of him is 180 degrees from what it had once been, and considering what he gets paid, I agree with others who think he should be fired.

Thank you, Cliff. It's nice to see an administrator who isn't spring loaded to the "Delete the thread, close the thread" position. Too many others on many forums are not as sensible and reasonable.

What amazes me is that someone would make such a claim, knowing that it is going to be "shot down" as soon as the people that were with him heard about it. If he were just another GI in uniform, mixed in with a bunch of other GIs in uniform, well, maybe you could get away with it, but everyone is going to remember the "celeb" that was in a chopper with them when it was hit by a RPG. What was he thinking???

It would definitely have to be a NEW network as none of the others will take him.

Although he may well end up at MSNBC where the worst of the worst hangout and all the losers go to report on lies. They certainly do not report on news there.

Fox News, CNN, ABC, CBS etc. would NOT touch this loser after this debacle.

Five will get you ten that this will blow over and he will keep his job. Why?? He got the network ratings. Does anyone remember the newsman standing in front of the same wrecked cargo plane for 10 days in a row in Viet Nam? He moved to get a new perspective of it every day. But, the ides was to make viewers think it was a different plane. I think his initials were Walter Cronkite.

Some people start to listen to their own press. When that happens they lose a grip on the truth and how it fits into everyday living.

We see athletes, media, entertainment and polititians all become bigger than life in their own minds. Unfortunately in many cases there is us (the general public) who continue to support and defend them.
