Ever since NBC Anchor and Council on Foreign Relations member Brian Williams came forward and claimed he “misremembered” his tale of being in a chopper that was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade in Iraq (Williams was apparently in another chopper that arrived an hour after the one that was fired upon landed), more of Williams’ tall tales have come to light.
Apparently residents in “sleepy Red Bank, NJ” have also debunked Williams’ tale of staring down a mugger’s .38 while he was selling Christmas trees out of the back of a truck to help a local church sometime in the 1970s, a story he told at least four times publicly, including in a 2005 interview with Esquire:
“That wasn’t a bad job, until a guy came up and stuck a .38-caliber pistol in my face and made me hand over all the money. Merry Christmas, right? Of course, I suddenly appreciated the other jobs I thought I hated,” he told New Jersey Monthly in 2008.
But longtime Red Bank residents think it’s a tall tale.
“I would highly doubt he’s telling the truth,” said Danny Murphy, who in the ’70s ran Danny’s restaurant , which was a few blocks from the alleged crime scene. “I find it hard to believe anyone was held up in this area in the ’70s. It was very safe.”
Other residents also scoff at the story.
“It was never dangerous here,” said Yolanda DeMaria, 93. “It was a very peaceful town, a lovely town. It was a small town with a dress shop and a five-and-dime. No one locked their cars.” (source)
The New York Post is also reporting that Williams’ tales of rescuing a puppy from a fire might be false:
Or maybe it was two puppies.
The truth-challenged NBC anchor told dueling versions of his supposed heroics as a teenage volunteer firefighter with the Old Village Fire Company in Middletown, NJ.
In October 2011, Williams waxed rhapsodic about how his dad took him to fires.
“I remember one such house fire . . . conducting a search on my hands and knees, when I felt something warm, squishy and furry on the floor of a closet,” Williams said.
“I instinctively tucked it in my coat. When I got outside, I saw two small eyes staring up at me, and I returned the 3-week-old and very scared puppy to its grateful owners,” he said.
But in July 2005, he told a different story, insisting he had saved not one but two pups from certain death.
It has even come out today that Williams told differing stories about coming under Hezbollah rocket fire in 2006.
So, is Brian Williams a pathological liar?
Let’s see, he works for the mainstream media and he’s a member of the CFR… Does a bear crap in the woods?
The Burning Platform asked a better question, actually: When did “misremember” become a real word?
The man piloting the chopper which was actually hit by the RPG reportedly called up the station a decade ago and told them Williams lied. Now Brian Williams admits he lied. Now people are surprised.
Come on people. This is someone who sells lies for a living.
All these other news outlets and big name anchors are scrambling to point the finger at Williams and distance themselves from him, lest the spotlight get turned around on their half truths and dramatic embellishments.
But all of these people who are paid to read a teleprompter full of propaganda fed into it by our government are essentially paid talking heads for the establishment agenda and nothing more. All of them. Check out any of their closets. Likely all of them are filled with skeletons.
The saddest part is that anyone honestly trusts the mainstream media in the first place. These people are paid to push an agenda. They lie for a living. Why are any of these people given even a teensy modicum of trust?
It’s not at all shocking that Williams lied (and possibly lied and lied some more). What’s shocking is how many people are shocked by that.
