From the New York Times:
Brian Williams, the embattled NBC news anchor whose credibility plummeted after he acknowledged exaggerating his role in a helicopter incident in Iraq, was suspended for six months without pay, the network said Tuesday night.
Lester Holt will continue to substitute for Mr. Williams now, but finding a permanent successor will be a major problem for the network, which was not anticipating having to replace the anchor of its “Nightly News’’ broadcast for some time. In December, Mr. Williams signed a new five-year contract reported to be worth $10 million a year.
That’s a slap on the wrist if I’ve ever seen one. So Williams will lose $5 million for lying, but he gets to keep his job. Well, NBC Nightly News, I know you’re reading this, and I think there’s only one option to regain your credibility:
