Folks, sometimes the fish jumps right into the boat.
Six weeks ago NBC News anchor Brian Williams was “Fool of the Week” for ignoring Jonathan Gruber calling Americans “stupid.” And for an outrageously biased question to General Michael Hayden: Williams asked Hayden if he’d be OK with his family members being waterboarded.
That earned Brian Williams a “Fool of the Week” designation.
For lying about valor, for lying about seeing combat, for possibly lying about Hurricane Katrina
you can be excused.
But for violating all journalistic ethics and for destroying your credibility – in a way not seen since Dan Rather fabricated the story of George W. Bush’s military experience -- Brian Williams, you, sir, have the distinct honor of once again being the “Fool of the Week.”
