NBC News finds Brian Williams embellished at least 11 times

A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe.

NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statement after he apologized in early February for saying on “NBC Nightly News” that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six months without pay and to investigate other statements he’s made.

    The highly-esteemed Hilary Clinton has also embellished her history, when it comes to being shot at by the enemy — yet our pro-Clinton, pro-Obama media are not holding her to account. And the media will ignore the dealings of the Clinton Foundation. Probably not.
