A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe.
NBC undertook the examination of Williams statement after he apologized in early February for saying on NBC Nightly News that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six months without pay and to investigate other statements hes made.
The Iraq claim was one of the 11 suspect statements that a team of NBC News journalists has identified during the inquiry, said the individual, who asked not to be identified because he isnt authorized to talk about an internal matter.

that reminds me, did George Zimmerman ever sue NBC for their altered 911 tapes?
Going to make it a lot harder to rehabilitate Mr. Williams.
Guess they’ll have to keep paying to not be on the air for quite a while longer.
What’s the point of this massive (and I suppose, expensive) investigation? You embellish - lie - once, and you’re gone. It’s really that easy.
opps ... sense 12 times or more. No media tells the truth ... They all lie!
Protecting themselves against a lawsuit.
Reading off the teleprompter like a dork on the Jimmy Fallon show while Fallon does his "slow jam" routine. He let Fallon use him like a tool because he wanted to appear to be "hip" on a late night talk show.
What an untalented bozo.
Anyone with government clearance can and does ... I vote for you to have government clearance ... to lie. Now (we) need congressional approval ...
He has the most crooked face I’ve ever seen. Goes in three different directions.
He did, but the suit was tossed by the judge.
I don’t understand how this is breaking news or even news at all.
Most every word that comes out of every liberal news anchor’s mouth on every liberal news station is a LIE. Why single out this idiot’s lies? Eleven times? You could find that in five minutes on MSNBC!
Heck, Walter Cronkite flat out lied ton the American people about the Tet offensive — and to this day is still a hero of the Left.

Hmmm- almost as many times as a certain first lady who is now running for president has- one gets investigated, the other gets wealthy on speaking fees and shady deals while holding office-, and now gets to run for president of the most powerful nation on earth
[[Why single out this idiots lies? Eleven times?]]
Well it was a whopper lie- akin to rather’s ‘fake but accurate’ story which damaged President Bush but was later found ot be a lie and exposed as such
He is just part of the NBC team. There is nothing to see here because they all do it everyday. Williams should be proud he has only been caught 11 or 12 times. Every night on msnbc it is lie after lie. I guess that is just opinionated news and reporting. :)
Is BW over yet?
Of course reporters embellish. How else could they make the silly stuff they report on, celebs, entertainment, sports, seem important?
your clue is something ain’t right but I think your clue is right.
