By saying he was in a helicopter that was hit by enemy fire–when in fact nothing of the sort actually happened–Brian Williams lied. His subsequent statements calling his lies a “mistake” is another lie. Williams clearly tried to steal some of the valor of those who have actually been under fire; and now that he has been exposed as a fraud, he is pleading with us to accept his actions as a “mistake.”
A “mistake” is what has happened when you wear one black shoe and one brown shoe; it is what has happened when you leave your door unlocked. Trying to label his lies as a “mistake” is an insult to the very word mistake.
The revelation that Brain Williams has been lying to us all along may come as a shock to only a few bitter clinging liberals who prefer their news be supportive of their politics regardless of the truth.
Moreover, the Williams lie is a very special lie. Anyone who has seen the NBC “On Demand” promo featuring Williams talking to us in his studied theatrical pace knows that even as he was telling us how we need not bother with the news during the day because NBC would “go where we have to, to get it for you and it will be waiting for you whenever you are ready,” now understands he was really saying , “Don’t listen to the truth, wait for us to craft the news to make you feel better about being who you are.”
The magnitude of the lie and how easily it could have been debunked is very disturbing. It is chilling to know we have not only been actively lied to by Williams (he is what he is – a media parrot for the Democrats) but worst still, passively lied to by the many supporting characters who have sold their integrity to keep their job.
Williams’ lie has forever stained the Command Sergeant Major he befriended while in Iraq “reporting” how “George Bush’s” war on terror was failing. He has cast a shadow over the other military personnel and NBC crewmembers who watched the lie grow and be nurtured into William’s own kneejerk claim for credibility, yet never stepped up to tell the truth.
Given the universality of lies in so called news reports maybe we have become numb to the antics of these people – after all fewer and fewer people actually watch Barack Obama’s media parrots anyway – so do we care if Brain Williams is kept on or not?
