    How does he not understand that many viewers will boycott his broadcast? Did Howard forget about ratings? :dontknow:

    Harmless lying from a NEWS guy according to Howard.
    Stern also said Williams may be ill....like serial lying is a sickness.
    I hope Howard sent Brian a copy of Sarno's book.


    Stern is on record as saying the best lies must contain some truth. He would know. After all he is the king of all serial lairs.

    Howard is an all in liar.
    I'm listening to early 90's stern shows.....he lied about everything back then too.

    This is classic NBC NYC elite Matt Lauer Hamptons cronyism in full effect! Plus, Plughead jerks off to the HBO show GIRLS which Williams daughter Alison co-stars on.

    ALWAYS an ulterior motive with Wigward, just gotta dig sometimes. Also, who lies more than Gunkard about any and everything?? He and Bri-Bri are kindred spirits in embellishments and histrionic hucksterism.

    I'm glad you brought this up. It was really very odd. And you guys can say whatever you want, but I find it really out of character for him to dismiss something like this as nothing for a NEWS broadcaster to try to pull one over on the viewing public. There's more to this defense than meets the eye. Maybe Williams or the daughter are represented by Buchwald or Howard has some other personal stake in this.

    This whole williams thing would never have come up on NBC had his daughter not had her ass eaten out on that Lena pig dunham show. It just makes NBC look bad so they had to punish him.

    In case you were doodling.....
    Howard is the king of serial liars.
    He was defending himself while defending Brian.

    Too bad Fred doesn't have any balls to use that Pat Cooper sound drop against Plughead during the show.

    just because the wig was defending him it doesnt mean he was guilty. His daughter was the guilty one.

    This was Gunky seeding his perceived "23 million listeners" with the thought that some media personality embellishing a little story is par for the course, and to be expected.

    So, when the hypocrisy spotlight ever gets shone on Gunky, he's hoping he will have lacquered down an extra layer of Teflon.

    I agree...he was very dismissive of the whole debacle saying that Williams is not a "journalist" but just a "news reader"...really? Granted he's no Eric Sevaride or Edward R. Murrow but he's a news anchor who delivers the evening news every night. Shouldn't there be standards for someone in this position? How can anyone believe anything this guy says anymore when he has lied and made stuff up. Sorry Howard, Williams deserves to be shit canned and then he needs to get some therapy and work on his pathological lying. I'm sure in a few years he'll write a book about this and go on a book tour and do interviews...maybe Howard will interview him since he's been so sympathetic and forgiving.

    Howard has devoted his career to fact embellishment & outright lies. Despite the motive -- which i'm sure is based in karmic worries over his tsunami of falsity engulfing him, supporting Brian Williams is a rare moment of non-hypocrisy.

    howard is prolly buddies with the guy.
    however, the lies were meaningless
    ppl act like he lied about important news reports, as opposed to just trying to be interesting on letterman
