Brian Williams Lied In Story In Iraq

No wonder we have such a dim view of the media and press
When a number one anchor lies and the truth tries to suppress
Brian Williams' embellishments of being in a helicopter in Iraq
And being hit by an RPG should lead to his sack
NBC’s credibility has been stained
Time to act before it further goes down the drain
The ghosts of Huntley and Brinkley must be in full mode groans
Over the blatant falsehood Williams has shown
Uncle Walter whose statements and reports one could believe
Must be shaking his head and as a journalist be in a major grieve
Unlike Rather who failed to check his source on the AWOL of Bush from the Texas National Guard
Williams was the false source lowering big time for NBC the viewers’ regard
It is time for NBC to quickly act and his anchor position now strip
Send him to MSNBC where objectivity in the likes of Sharpton has really slipped
