Media Research Center President Brent Bozell joined the Fox News Channel’s Hannity on Monday night to discuss the growing number of lies made by NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams that Bozell declared has left him with “no credibility” and warned that “neither will NBC if they bring him back” to anchor their evening newscast.
Bozell began by observing that “[t]he news is just getting worse and worse for the man” and compared him to a player on a Super Bowl-winning NFL team who repeatedly lies by changing his story about the role that he played on the team.
Using that analogy, Bozell stated that “[t]his seems to the pathology of Brian Williams” and brought up one of the latest stories to come to light where he claims to have seen a dead body floating in the water and caught dysentery while reporting in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
He then laid out the current situation facing NBC News :
NBC has to face this reality. If they keep their number one prize possession on the air, the wheels come off all credibility on that news format. If they don't keep him on, they have lost their number one star. This is their dilemma.
When asked by host Sean Hannity if “there’s something deeper going on here” with Williams, Bozell concluded the segment with this final point: “How does he come back on the air next week and purport to be a newsman reporting the news? He has no credibility left and neither will NBC if they bring him back. That's the sad reality.”
