The dishonored ex-journalist of the NBC TV-network, Brian Williams, who was fired for his mendacious report about the Iraq war, has launched a campaign against ‘fake news’.
Brian Williams, the dishonored ex-journalist of the NBC TV-network, who was literally fired after his fake report, according to which he was in a helicopter during the Iraq war that came under combatant fire, has launched a campaign against ‘fake news’.
Last night, during his MSNBC show, Williams decided to accuse US President-elect Donald Trump and retired General Michael Flynn of spreading ‘fake news’ via their twitter accounts.
“The retired Army 3-star general has passed on some gems himself. Here are a few… Flynn retweeted accusations that Clinton is involved with child sex trafficking and has “secretly waged war” on the Catholic Church, as well as charges that Obama is a “jihadi” who “laundered” money for Muslim terrorists.
As we talked about here last night, fake news played a role in this election and continues to find a wide audience. A BuzzFeed news study of Donald Trump’s own tweets, where they followed back news stories to their root source, found more of them came from Breitbart originally than any other single source,” Williams said.
“I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another,” Williams said commented his falsehood at that time.
