NBC announced Tuesday that it is suspending Brian Williams as ‘Nightly News’ anchor and managing editor for six months without pay for misrepresenting and misleading public about his experience covering the Iraq War. Steve Burke, NBC chief executive said Williams’ actions were inexcusable and jeopardized the trust he has built with viewer during his decade as the network’s lead anchor. But he said Williams deserved a second chance. He was call out when said he was in a helicopter that was under firer and was hit by a grenade while covering the Iraq War in 2003. He was in a group of helicopters and another was hit and some veteran involved in the mission recounted the true story.
