Now You've Done It Brian Williams

I know you have all heard it by now, the "big lie" of Brian Williams helicopter being shot down in Iraq.

This story and awesome picture from the super SooperMexican blog

"Apparently NBC’s Brian Williams has been pitching an admittedly inspiring story about being under attack in Iraq and being saved by our military. He’s been telling the story for twelve years, but there’s a problem – it never happened." 

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.
Williams repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters, a game to which Williams accompanied him. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry."
"The admission came after crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook that was hit by two rockets and small arms fire told Stars and Stripes that the NBC anchor was nowhere near that aircraft or two other Chinooks flying in the formation that took fire"...

My post is entitled "Now You've Done It Brian Williams", so what has he done that I meant?  Has he been caught in a lie that he can't get out of?  True, but that's not it.   Has he hurt not only his reputation but that of his NBC News Network [and confirmed for many the dubious honesty of the main stream media?]  True, but that's not it. 

What Brian Williams has done is bring focus to an almost exact same lie by one of the presidential candidates for 2016.  And what makes it bad news for the liberal Brian Williams of the liberal NBC News Network is that the candidate who also lied like Brian Williams, is the one and only darling of the mainstream media, Hillary "Grandmas Know Best" Clinton.  Horrors Brian.  Now you've done it.

Liar, liar, grandma's pant suit's on fire!
Yes, in 2008 with Hillary, I guess trying to build her resume up as she was running for president, she [a kind way to put it] told a "whopper" of her experiencing dodging bullets in a Bosnian trip as first lady in 1996.  Check this out:  

Hillary would explain later that she didn't know why, but that she "misspoke".

Hmm, I wonder if Hillary might have to reconsider changing her hashtag that she uses from #GrandmasKnowBest to ...
