As of last week NBC’s world news anchor man Brian Williams has been caught in a lie from his 2003 Iraq Helicopter incident and now more possible lies have come to light. From having rockets fired under his helicopter in Israel, being in the Katrina flood in New Orleans and working in the White House during the Carter administration Williams is now under question whether any of these events truly happened the way they were told.
Proverbs 12:17 An honest witness tells the truth,but a false witness tells lies.
Why does this matter you might think so what if he spun some half truths to make the story a bit more exciting who wants to hear from a hum drum reporter.
Well it does matter, truth matters as the customer we should expect NBC to report the truth, I know that’s a stretch but a free press should be a responsible press
Yes truth matters, if we wanted half truth stories then NBC should disclaimer the nightly news with Brian Williams, “this may or may not be truthful account of today’s news”
Proverbs 12:19 Truthful lips endure forever,but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.
In my opinion NBC News and Williams are walking a fine line of dishonesty and truth. Williams works for NBC and represents the network no matter where he is and what he does, that’s the responsibility you take on when you report the world news every night to potentially everyone in America
Proverbs 19:5 A false witness will not go unpunished,and whoever pours out lies will not go free.
Will NBC and Williams continue to tell tall tells, will NBC allow half truths in the newsroom well that might just be entirely up to you the viewer.
