Why Should We Believe Anything Brian Williams Calls ‘Fake News’?

“Fake news for me, not for thee,” is the battle cry of the liberal media. The king of spinning bar tales as true life harrowing heroics, Brian Williams, has gone after retired Gen. Mike Flynn because of his son’s tweet.

Williams weighed in:

Flynn’s son was fired by the Trump transition today for passing on fake news story via Twitter. But his dad, the retired Army three-star general has passed on some gems himself.

There is absolutely no reason to believe anything Williams says. The man is totally devoid of any authority on making up stories, since he himself, for years, peddled all kinds of lies about Chinook helicopters and Iraq in 2003.

“While on Nightly News on Friday, January 30, 2015, Brian misrepresented events which occurred while he was covering the Iraq War in 2003. It then became clear that on other occasions Brian had done the same while telling that story in other venues. This was wrong and completely inappropriate for someone in Brian’s position,” [NBC president Deborah] Turness said.

Then there was Williams’ lies about reporting on Hurricane Katrina. Basically, nothing this man says can be taken seriously. He’s become the butt of every exaggerated story and bar tale lie joke in the past two years.

For the liberal press, it’s totally okay for someone who was suspended–but not fired–to criticize the incoming Trump administration for actually firing someone who arguably committed a much less serious infraction of “fake news.” Journalists spewing falsehoods for years is far worse than a presidential transition aide’s single tweet.

But the left has a mission to make “fake news” the reason Trump won–having failed at making rigged elections and blatant racism the reason. So they’ll continue to forgive their own sins while magnifying every misstep of anyone ever so slightly connected with Trump. I guess Matthew 7:5 only applies when liberal use it against Christians.
