Brian Williams, the face of NBC News, is publically apologizing for ‘misremembering’ an incident from the Iraq War. For several years the Nightly News anchor has repeatedly told a story on-air in which he claims he was flying in a military helicopter that was forced to the ground after being struck by enemy fire, but the veteran anchor is now retracting the entire narrative. RT’s Ben Swann and Tyrel Ventura take a look.
There is now even speculation regarding his reporting during Hurricane Katrina. While Williams has yet to comment on the accusations related to Hurricane Katrina, he did issue a public apology on Wednesday for claiming he was on a helicopter that was shot down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
