Media Research Center Founder and President Brent Bozell said that NBC anchor Brian Williams should resign after revelations that he had erroneously reported that a helicopter he was in was hit by an RPG and shot down on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
“It just doesn’t pass the smell test, Sean. If he bungled it, then he also bungled it on the Letterman show two years ago, how do you bungle it twice? And how do you bungle being hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, how is that misremembered? How do you misremember [being] hit by a rocket-propelled grenade? You either were or you weren’t…he clearly lied. it wasn’t bungled. it wasn’t misremembered. He lied” he stated. And “they have a curious standard here. They will call out people, but now they need to be called out because they’re involved with it.”
Bozell also accused Williams of using the military as “props” to make himself look better, blasted NBC for its “culture of dishonesty,” and concluded “I think the honorable thing is for him to resign”
