King of Fake News

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Liberal left Democrats lie. . . constantly.  Barack Obama lied when he said you could keep your doctor/Health Care Plan.  Hillary Clinton lied when she said she arrived in Bosnia under sniper fire.  They both lied about Benghazi.  Dan Rather lied when he erroneously reported on Bush's military service using falsified documents.  Katie Couric lied with misleading editing of an interview regarding guns.  Nancy Pelosi lied when she said she had never heard of Jonathan Gruber.  Senator Harry Reid has admitted to lying constantly on the Senate floor.

The King of liberal left liars, however, is the grandmaster of B.S. reporting himself, Brian Williams.

Brian Williams has lied so many times that Breitbart has actually created a list of 32 lies and disputed stories.

One of his lies was about being in a helicopter that was hit by ground fire, when in reality he was in a different chopper.  Then, the memes about Williams being in places he couldn't possibly be began to emerge. (Note: Story Continues After All of the Memes)  -------------------------------->

With all of that background about how much Brian Williams lies, or should I say "delivers fake news," then after his demotion to MSNBC from NBC for, well, lying and delivering fake news, it was a hoot when we found out that Brian Williams has been delivering reports warning about "Fake News":

"As we talked about here last night, fake news played a role in this election and continues to find a wide audience."

Yes, Williams actually said that, and while managing to keep a straight face.

Liars who have been liars long enough become impervious to the idea of having any guilt about their lies.

And remember what Robert Heinlein said about "reform politicians"... They "sincerely regret the necessity" to be dishonest, "and will tell you so."  But, they believe they must be dishonest due to their "unswerving devotion to [their] ideal. All it takes to get him to break his word is for someone to get his ear and convince him that it is necessary for the greater good of all peepul [sic]... After he gets hardened to this, he's capable of cheating at solitaire. Fortunately he rarely stays in office long - except during the decay and fall of a culture."

By Brian Williams decrying "fake news," is he not suggesting that he's never been guilty of such, and that MSNBC itself is no place for this sort of thing?

Think about it.  Williams and MSNBC are asking you to trust them, with their history of reporting fake news, that their opposition is guilty of fake news.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Perhaps, as NewsBusters suggests, MSNBC, especially when Brian Williams is on the air, should run a disclaimer across the bottom of the screen reading: "Warning: MSNBC anchor condemning fake news has repeatedly engaged in the practice."

When it comes to Brian Williams, and pretty much all of the leftwing media, I call B.S.
