NBC's "illustrious" anchorman was outed by soldiers who were actually there and were fed up with hearing Williams repeat his "I was a brave hero reporter" lie over and over again.

It's an unmitigated disaster for Brian Williams and NBC News.
The revelation that the NBC anchor had lied on air about being in a helicopter that was forced down after it was hit by enemy fire during the Iraq War is devastating.
An anchor's No. 1 requirement is that he or she has credibility. If we don't believe what an anchor tells us, what's the point?It's disturbing that Williams has told many different versions of this story over the years.
