Mainstream media arrogance continues in full force.
One of the most notorious gossipmongers of false information is now decrying the spread of fake news and its supposed influence.
The irony of someone punished for spreading false information and then openly criticizing fake news proves the leftist media just doesn’t have any connection with reality.
Brian Williams, who was removed from the “NBC Nightly News” anchor slot for reporting fake news – now relegated to an late night MSNBC position – slammed fake news Thursday.
“Fake news played a role in this election and continues to find a wide audience,” Williams said, before attacking retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn – President-elect Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser – and Breitbart News Network.
It’s curious Williams is becoming the face of the legacy and establishment media charge against “fake news.” This is the matter that such media luminaries are rallying around to blame their widely inaccurate reporting of the 2016 presidential election.
Watch it here:
Williams lost his slot as anchor of the “NBC Nightly News” after he made up scores of accounts, passing off completely fabricated stories as journalism.
In fact, back in early 2015, Breitbart News presented a list of at least 32 times that NBC News let Williams present such fake news to the American people – lies and disputed stories – including his false claims about being in a helicopter that was hit by an RPG.
Williams also made up stories about Seal Team 6, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the pope, Hurricane Katrina, quitting college, rescuing a puppy from a house fire, and more.
Williams was suspended, handing the NBC Nightly News to its current anchor Lester Holt, and then, after a great deal of time, was reinstated over at MSNBC – the openly partisan progressive cable news network.
Williams is the poster boy of fake news and mainstream media’s use of fake news to promote its leftist agenda. Anything he reports or offers an opinion on should always be distrusted and fact-checked immediately.
He’s nothing more than a sock puppet dancing to the tune of the progressive bias in mainstream media.
