New Yorker Journalist Suffers Amnesia Defending Brian Williams

“Are Brian Williams’ fellow left leaning journalists circling the wagons around him? Well at least The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza is trying,” as spotted by Twitchy:


Ahh, the old “I can’t understand why…” trope, which is an oft-spoken left wing euphemism for “I know perfectly well why, but I’m afraid to admit, either to myself or to you, or both.” Gee, according to Ryan Lizza’s Wikipedia profile, “Since joining The New Yorker in 2007, he has written profiles of Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Barack Obama, Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Joe Biden, Rahm Emanuel, Peter Orszag, Darrell Issa, Michele Bachmann, Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, and Rand Paul.” And he’s only 41 years old; awfully young for Alzheimer’s to be developing, which makes his inability to understand Williams’ repeated fabulisms all the more peculiar. Whatever could be causing his amnesia? (Apologies for the salty language in this tweet):

Or as Ricochet.com contributor Rick Wilson tweets, “Here come the Brian Williams Truthers.”

They’ve got their work cut out for them; here’s yet another example of Williams hearing “Flight of the Valkyries” in his head while appearing on a talk show:

Here’s how it all went down back then, right Brian?
