NBC has suspended anchor Brian Williams without pay for six months in response to his difficulty telling the truth. NBC Universal CEO Steve Burke says that they are “rooting for him.”
“This has been a painful period for all concerned and we appreciate your patience while we gathered the available facts. By his actions, Brian has jeopardized the trust millions of Americans place in NBC News. His actions are inexcusable and this suspension is severe and appropriate. Brian’s life’s work is delivering the news. I know Brian loves his country, NBC News and his colleagues. He deserves a second chance and we are rooting for him. Brian has shared his deep remorse with me and he is committed to winning back everyone’s trust.”
Tell the truth?
There should be a Washington DC branch. Nobody would attend though.
