Oh Bri-Wi, say it ain't such B.S.

The downfall of Brian Williams reached a crescendo this weekend with the voluntary "temporary" departure of the NBC Nightly News anchor. While Comcast and NBC use this break to decide the final fate of the newscaster, the NYTimes has taken the opportunity to gather the damning footage of Mr. Williams digging himself a hole in the shifting Iraqi sands of his memory. What follows is a time-lapse of a man sealing his own fate over the course of more than a decade.

There is still the question of whether it was acceptable to say "the helicopter in front of us" in 2003, when apparently it was an hour ahead of Williams, but that kind of exaggeration is peanuts compared to claiming to have been in a Chinook that actually received RPG fire.
