The on-camera talent of America’s highest-rated network evening news broadcast and “the 23rd-most-trusted person in the country” is now the face of viral internet memes.
Brian Williams, who has anchored “NBC Nightly News” for more than a decade, was forced to take a temporary leave of absence over “the next several days” amid the growing scandal of false claims he made regarding his reporting in Iraq.
Williams, who earns $13 million annually (making him America’s fourth-highest-paid news broadcaster), admitted to confusing parts of a story he shared on air about riding in a helicopter shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade in 2003. On Wednesday, after multiple military members questioned Williams’ personal account, which he had repeated on numerous occasions, he apologized on camera to his audience.
Since then, Williams’ coverage of Hurricane Katrina and other notable accounts are under internal investigation.
