Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, whenever a journalist disgraced himself or herself by broadcasting fake news or by lying, plagiarizing, inventing news, distorting it or manufacturing it, they were dishonored and discredited and never heard from again.
But that was then and this is now, and fake news is all the rage.
Fake news reporter Brian Williams is a leading contender for the title, “King of Fake News” because he disgraced himself when he was dismissed by NBC and ended up at MSNBC, which rewards people like Williams for inventing news.
Williams is the guy who remembered the bombing of Japan as ‘the United States bombing it “in anger,”’ conveniently ignoring the FACT that the Japs murdered thousands of Americans at Pearl Harbor and butchered American and Allied troops throughout the war, e.g. the Bataan Death March.
“If people have found the U.S. to be preachy in the years since Hiroshima and Nagasaki about the use of weapons because we are the only nation to have used them in anger,” he said.
Following are several heretofore undiscovered photos of Williams that should be on display in the Smithsonian as pieces of American history.
