“Our traveling NBC News team was rescued, surrounded, and kept alive by an armor mechanized platoon from the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry.”
-Brian Williams- NBC News-
If the truth had been told, He hadn’t been captured, he wasn’t shot at, he wasn’t even in the area till an hour later. So why do they do this? Probably like the politicians, lies are more sensational than the truth, so lies should be told.
I guess the reasoning is: Why tell the truth, when a good sensational sounding lie will get the job done.
The problem is, especially in this day of everyone having the ability to get news by just having their smart phones with them is, that the lie will come out sooner or later, usually sooner, making the teller sound stupid. Well, Brian Williams now sounds stupid.
Heard on the Tony Katz show this morning on WIBC was the clip of Brian Williams telling everyone in his broadcast that he was shot at in a helicopter by an RPG. Here is the problem. It never happened.
He said he was in a trailing helicopter, but he was really in a helicopter coming through the area an hour later after the damaged aircraft had already landed safely.
There are things you forget. There are things you will never forget. Lying is something that will always give you a story that you made up; that you will forget the details of because it never happened. Telling the truth will always get you through because the events really happened and you are not making anything up.
Getting shot at is something you would never forget. Especially if you were in a helicopter flying through the air. Especially it you were being shot at with an RPG.
So, Brian Williams of NBC lied here.
He lied to make something truthful and mundane for him, sensational, with an attempt at making him a hero cause he survived it. Like I said, the truth be told, he wasn’t even there.
So the question asked before here, will be asked again. Why do they do that? I will tell you.
They get to report on some of the most telling things in history. They get to report on things that people more important than they will ever be, do all the time. I think that Brian Williams wanted to be a part of this breaking story, and wanted to be hero worshipped for being in the middle of it. I don’t think there is anything more to this except that the truth, especially after Obama, has become irrelevant to them. The truth doesn’t matter to them unless, they get caught in a lie.
Then they will apologize without any explanation of why they lied in the first place…..because that isn’t important. What is important is them, is ‘saving face’ in the face of the lie that they told.
So they apologize and then feel that it will go away and they can go on with their lieves. This is one of the many reasons that this society is coming down around our ears and becoming a mess at our feet. The truth doesn’t matter anymore, when a good lie will suffice. Sadly, even our president thinks this way. God Help us all.
