Lying Brian Williams, at home, with MSNBC
Written by 

by Jeff Crouere

After an extensive investigation, NBC News finally decided what to do with habitual liar Brian Williams, who has been on an extended suspension since February. In the end, they made the perfect choice by removing him from the anchor chair at the “Nightly News” and demoting him to MSNBC, their embarrassment of a cable news network. Williams will join other habitual liars, such as the Reverend Al Sharpton, on MSNBC, a ratings disaster. 

 

MSNBC is perpetually in the ratings basement, averaging just 10% of the viewing audience who used to watch Williams on the NBC “Nightly News.” This journalistic wasteland is an ideal home for Williams, who tarnished any of his reporting credentials when he started lying about the major events he covered.

 While Williams will lose his lofty NBC position and face a reduction of salary from $15 million to $10 million per year, it is still amazing that he has a job and will be making so much money. On MSNBC, Williams will handle special reports and anchor breaking news coverage. It helps that Williams is a liberal and NBC is an extremely liberal network. If Williams had been a conservative, there is little doubt that he would have been fired. 

In an interview with Matt Lauer on the “Today” show, Williams finally spoke some truth as he said his lies were “ego driven.”  He admitted that his suspension has been “torture.” Unfortunately, he refused to elaborate on all of the different falsehoods he told. Clearly, Williams lied about his helicopter coming under rocket propelled grenade attack while covering the Iraq war. However, he also surely lied in a number of other cases, such as his report of seeing a dead body float by his hotel window in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. A real analysis of his many exaggerations and lies would cover multiple incidents over the span of many years. 

Obviously, this habitual liar has zero credibility with viewers, which is why the move to MSNBC makes sense. No viewer who watches hosts such as Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow or Chris Matthews expects honest journalism. All viewers see on MSNBC is hard core liberal activism disguised as journalism. 

Through his years of lies, Williams showed a callous disregard for the viewers who entrusted him to truthfully report the news. As an anchor with a propensity to lie and exaggerate, Williams has now found a perfect home at MSNBC.

One good thing resulting from this episode is that viewers looking for a good laugh now have an alternative to Comedy Central. They can watch the laughable liberals on MSNBC, the new home of lying Brian Williams, a man who chose lies over the facts, popularity over credibility and, despite a suspension and nationwide humiliation, has still not admitted the truth.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
