Wow. A source from NBC has told the Los Angeles Times that Brian Williams “will face no disciplinary action “for lying about getting shot at in a helicopter while reporting from Iraq in 2003:
NBC News is standing by Brian Williams after the anchor’s admission that he embellished his role in a military incident during the Iraq war.
The network has not commented publicly, but an executive familiar with the matter says Williams will face no disciplinary action. His apology, delivered during the Wednesday edition of “NBC Nightly News,” was accepted internally.
The anchor claimed during a recent broadcast that, while working as a wartime journalist in 2003, his U.S. military helicopter was hit and forced down by enemy fire. He had been telling a similar version of this story for several years.
