I despise lying as much as anyone and although I am glad this is getting so much air time and he was suspended why isn't this much attention given to the politicians when they straight out LIE or, "mis-remember"?

Both sides have lied, is lying and will continue to lie and even when the American People, KNOW THE TRUTH, nothing happens.

Brian is a pawn that will take a hit for the "Team" that will make some of the public think that lying is important to the network and they won't stand for it.

BS.

You mean to tell me that when you watch the "News" you really believe that the story is being told as it happened a majority of the time? Really?

Get real -- it's all BS. Doesn't matter if it's Brian Williams, Barbara Walters, or whoever. If you don't think it's BS just look around you. Look at the politicians. "for the people by the people"... yeah... because y'all are really going to black tie dinner for $5k a plate in a limo all the time. Yeah -- you're the people. LOL.

Sorry... but the Brian Williams thing is just silly.
Ah, lighten up. We agree with you, but you must admit it is fun watching one of these self-important, pompous, talking heads have the tables turned on them. Could you imagine the field day Williams and his colleagues would have IF this were a conservative!

I saw a story a few weeks ago where more than 60% of college students polled think there are times when it is okay to cheat in school. Doesn't say much for some people I guess.
We get the society we vote for......and as they say...."You ain't seen nothing yet"

There is an residential island near me about a half mile wide, and a mile and a half long. One time years ago a news report slipped a digit and said the island was 15 miles long rather than 1.5. Every now and then, years later I'll see a report by someone who is describing what a wonderful island it is, making like they are there and know everything about the place, while making mention that it is 15 miles long.

That tells me all I need to know about the accuracy of news reporting, and the truth when people tell you they were there.
