David Zurawik: Brian Williams Lied and Stole ‘Honor for Himself’ from Iraq War Vets

‘This is a terrible thing that Williams did. I don’t know why he did it’

Baltimore Sun’s Zurawik on CNN: Brian Williams Lied and Stole ‘Honor for Himself’ from Iraq War Veterans (NewsBusters)

Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik appeared on Thursday’s CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin and continued to hold little back in criticizing NBC News managing editor and NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams for having falsely claimed his helicopter was shot down in March 2003 over Iraq.

While also speaking with CNN’s Brian Stelter, Zurawik minced no words in describing what Williams did as lying and something that is grounds for his dismissal from his positions at NBC after having insulted the “millions of military families in this country who suffer everyday diminished lives by the injuries and the wounds that people who fought honorably in those wars suffered.”
