Liar Liar Pants On Fire

Remember the outrage regarding Benghazi and "Hillary lied - People died?"

Well, before that lie hillary lied about being shot at during the Bosnia war.
During an introduction to a foreign policy speech on Iraq on March 17, 2008, Sen. Hillary Clinton reminisced about her days as first lady and a trip to Tuzla, Bosnia, she made in March 1996.

"I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

But that's not what happened, as demonstrated by CBS News video that shows Clinton arriving on the tarmac under no visible duress, and greeting a child who offers her a copy of a poem. The Washington Post Factchecker also turned a skeptical eye on Clinton's comments, reporting that a review of more than 100 news stories from the time documented no security threats to the First Lady.
Now comes the news that clinton sycophant and NBC News anchor Brian Williams can tell just as big a whopper as either one of the clintons.
It's an unmitigated disaster for Brian Williams and NBC News.

The revelation that the NBC anchor had lied on air about being in a helicopter that was forced down after it was hit by enemy fire during the Iraq War is devastating.

It's hard to see how Williams gets past this, and how he survives as the face of NBC News.

An anchor's No. 1 requirement is that he or she has credibility. If we don't believe what an anchor tells us, what's the point?
I don't know about you, but I haven't believed a word that a mainstream news anchor said since Walter Cronkite lied about the Tet offensive.

Help yourself.

Back in November, Brian Williams reported "...the Ferguson jury failed to come up with charges..." as if they were suppose to charge Darren Wilson no matter the evidence. Failed! How was that a failure? Brian Williams should be fired.

He should be ... but probably won't be.
