    Brian Williams embellished at least 10 times while reporting, NBC probe finds: report

    Brian Williams, above, is on unpaid leave from “NBC Nightly News” after false comments about being shot down in a helicopter in Iraq.
    Suspended NBC News anchor Brian Williams could still have more to answer for.

    An internal probe by at least five journalists has turned up at least 10 instances where Williams lied or exaggerated about his reporting, a source with knowledge of the NBC investigation told CNN.

    The network hit the 55-year-old Williams with a six-month suspension without pay from “NBC Nightly News” on Feb. 10 after he was caught in a lie about being in a helicopter that took heavy ground fire during the Iraq War.

    The latest look at the benched anchor’s work has turned up previously unreported statements Williams made about events from Cairo’s Tahrir Square during Egypt’s Arab Spring that appear to be inconsistent with his time there in February 2011, according to The New York Times.

    In an interview that same year with Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” Williams said he “actually made eye contact with the man on the lead horse” during violent protests in the square.

    Stewart asked about pro-government forces using whips.

    “Yeah,” Williams said. “He went around the corner after I saw him, they pulled out whips and started beating human beings on the way.”

    Those statements don’t quite jibe with the facts since it appears Williams stood on a balcony overlooking the square and did not set foot among the protests, The Times reported.

    NBC’s investigation is still ongoing, according to sources.

    Insiders have pointed to Williams’ need to live up to legendary predecessor Tom Brokow and his body of work as a factor in the fibs.

    Williams had been the network’s anchor for a decade.

    Some people have absolutely no problem lying. They have no conscious and seriously don't give a flying fuck.

    not sure why people expect entertainers to tell the truth.

    He is never coming back to NBC news so whatever they find on him makes no matter.

    he may be a guy who viewed the tv news as a mix of information and entertainment
    if he is that guy he may be correct
    he does seem nice however

    For the sheeple amongst us, Google "charles Jaco cnn fake scud attack Iraq"

    Cnn and fake reporter charles Jaco pretended they were getting a scud attack in Iraq when in realty it was a cnn studio in the us with a blue screen.

    Think about that, what else the fuck are they lying about ? It's on youtube and you can watch that shit right now.
