Brian Williams should resign for 'conflating'

When a well-paid anchor has consistently lied about his experience in Iraq until soldiers finally call him on it, will his network dare publicize the story, let alone force his resignation?  They should, of course.

WASHINGTON — NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.

Williams repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters, a game to which Williams accompanied him. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.

Says he just "conflated" his experience with that of a helicopter that landed about an hour before his.  Actually, it's a lie.  Just like Hillary's fairy tale about dodging sniper fire in Bosnia.

Lots of "conflating" going on in our media and political circles.
