EVERYTHING is about money, not truth.
actually the lie resurfaced recently because Brian Williams couldn't keep his story straight - happens when tell lies - you forget what you said from one lie to another. If you can't trust the anchor for a toprated news show to tell the truth, who can you trust?

President Lyndon B Johnson was awarded a silver star for being on an inspection trip during WWII and the plane was attacked. He was riding in the back. The pilots and crew got nothing.

At least he did not brag about it.

Are you kidding me?

You need to go back and read about his HISTORY of lying that I and other posters touched on. You think "focusing on" Williams after that is silly? That tells us a lot about you. Brian Williams has been dancing too long.

Give me a break.

I'm one of the other two network news anchors and I don't see what the big deal is

as we like to say during the commercials; "the american public wouldn't know a fact from a hole in the ground"

sometimes I'm giving you the finger from beneath the desk

Yet despite what you say, NBC was forced to essentially fire Williams, the #1 news reader on TV. They don't think it is silly at all.
