If you recall, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams was fired for lying about what he saw in Iraq in 2003. However, MSNBC picked him up as an anchor anyway demonstrating that integrity is not a strong point with the network. Yet, Williams had the audacity to hypocritically attack President-elect Donald Trump’s national security adviser about fake news thinking that people would forget about his own fake news. They didn’t.
On Wednesday evening, Williams targeted Republicans and Trump for pushing “fake news.”
In doing so, Williams brought up Trump’s national security adviser pick, Lt. General Michael Flynn.
“Flynn’s son was fired by the Trump transition today for passing out fake news stories via Twitter. But his dad, the retired three star general has passed on some gems himself.
Here are a few, Clinton is involved with child sex trafficking and has secretly waged war on the Catholic Church. As well as charges that the president is a jihadi who laundered money for Muslim terrorists.
As we talked about here last night, fake news played a role in this election and continues to find a wide audience.”
He then targeted other outlets that provide an alternative perspective than the state-controlled narrative.
Well, Williams had his behind handed to him in the form of several comments, one of which came from NewsBusters.
We previously reported on Williams’ lies about his time in Iraq.
