Brian Williams Needs To Go

Brian Williams is a liar and if a journalist only has their creditability, then Williams is bankrupt.
From Fox News:
Army flight crews said Thursday that NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, in his apology over a false Iraq War story he had told for more than a decade, left out key facts in his admission, the latest development in an embarrassing episode for the face of the news network.
On Wednesday, Williams, 55, admitted that he was not aboard a helicopter that was hit and forced down during the invasion of Iraq on March 24, 2003, instead claiming that he was flying in a Chinook helicopter behind the formation that took fire.
But on Thursday, Stars and Stripes, the armed forces newspaper that first broke Williams' admission, reported that Williams was flying with a different helicopter company altogether, in a different direction, and linked to the attacked unit only by radio.
“I think it is misleading” for Williams to say his aircraft was following behind the Chinook hit by two rocket-propelled grenades and small arms fire, David Luke, a retired soldier from Texas who was a flight engineer with a company of the helicopters under the 159th Aviation Regiment, told the newspaper.
Luke said his formation of three Chinooks was carrying Williams and his NBC crew back toward Kuwait when they passed another company of Chinooks based out of Germany known as Big Windy, which was heading in the opposite direction toward Baghdad, he said.
Luke’s Hercules Chinooks, carrying Williams and the NBC crew, soon heard over the radio that the Big Windy company they had passed came under fire from an Iraqi pickup truck.
Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Miller, who was a flight engineer on the Chinook carrying NBC, told the paper that the TV news crew placed a microphone in one of the helicopter’s headsets and later broadcast clips of the radio reports from the Chinook company that was attacked.
If this were Hannity, O'Reilly or Limbaugh, they would be gone already.
But liberal Williams, he lies like the best liberals- like Hillary Clinton who said she was almost shot down in Bosnia.
