Brian William’s Return Demonstrates NBC’s Politics

By Daniel Morgan, Advertising Manager

Lester Holt has nicely situated into his permanent stay as NBC Nightly News solo anchor. After ‘filling in’ for Brian Williams since February, it is no surprise that Holt got the job. However, it is a surprise that NBC kept Williams after his distorted statements regarding his 2003 helicopter flight in Iraq. Or is it?

After his respected decade of leading the popular half-hour news slot, it is hard for the network to give Williams the boot. Even though he lied about his whereabouts in Iraq, he still managed to make his mark on the news industry and capture the hearts of Americans everywhere. But does a decade of credibility justify a blatant lie.
