Brian Williams blames ‘fake news’ for Hillary Clinton’s loss
This week has been full of what I like to call deliciously ironic stories and tonight I bring you another one:
The Democrats are having a tough time coping with the election loss and are looking for excuses for it. They just cannot come to grips with the fact that Hillary Clinton was a horrible candidate and a very unlikable person so they have rallied around this idea that “fake news” is to blame for her loss. (This denial is fine with me because until they admit what the problem was they are going to continue in a downward spiral.)
But here is where the irony kicks in: today Brian Williams decided to slam “fake news” and blamed it for Hillary Clinton’s loss, here is more:
“Fake news played a role in this election and continues to find a wide audience,” Williams said on MSNBC Wednesday night.
Williams targeted retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser, for promoting links to fake news stories on his Twitter account.
Of course the ironic part of this whole story is the fact that Brian Williams was fired for creating “fake news” back in 2015:
MSNBC anchor Brian Williams, who lost his job with NBC’s nightly news for exaggerating details of his time reporting in Iraq
In 2015, Williams was suspended without pay and eventually removed as NBC’s anchor when he admitted he exaggerated a story he often told about coming under enemy fire while riding a helicopter in Iraq.
But that is not the only time Brian Williams reported “fake news:”
In fact, back in early 2015, Breitbart News presented a list of at least 32 times that NBC News let Williams present such fake news to the American people—lies and disputed stories—including his false claims about being in a helicopter that was hit by an RPG.
I guess we should believe his testimony on “fake news” because he is an expert, you just cannot make this stuff up!
