Fire Doesn't Melt Steel, But Rosie O'Donnell DESTROYS Brian Williams

When your fables are too much for the world’s most prominent 9/11 truther

Rosie O’Donnell is buying none of NBC News anchor Brian Williams’ explanation for why he falsely claimed to be on a helicopter that was forced down by rocket-propelled grenade fire during the initial invasion of Iraq in 2003.

‘It’s a blatant lie. It’s a Lance Armstrong lie,’ O’Donnell said on Thursday’s edition of ABC’s The View.

Armstrong is the disgraced former Tour de France champion who for years denied using performance enhancing drugs only to later admit he had.

Of Williams O’Donnell also said: ‘I think he fabricated that story, and the apology seemed a little oddly circuitous.’

And if anybody knows “oddly circuitous,” it’s Rosie. Hey, as she warned during her first disastrous go-around as a news employee of the American Broadcasting Corporation back in 2007, don’t trust any of the news employees of the American broadcasting corporations:

I’m saying that in America we are fed propaganda and if you want to know what’s happening in the world go outside of the U.S. media because it’s owned by four corporations one of them is this one. And you know what, go outside of the country to find out what’s going on in our country because it’s frightening. It’s frightening.

Why should Williams be exempt from her “reasoning”? In any case, I can’t wait to hear what Oliver Stone, Jesse Ventura and Richard Belzer’s John Munch character from Law & Order: SVU have to say about Williams’ fabrications as well.

(And yes, I’m having fun with the headline and the rest of this post, but this is the feeding frenzy that NBC built for themselves — as did ABC, by hiring someone who remains a loony 9/11 truther.)

Related: Which is worse? Rosie attacking Williams, or these “14 People Brian Williams Would RATHER Not Have Defending Him.” Nice pun in the headline by the Daily Caller. So far Rather is the only person on their list who actually has defended Williams, but given how much room there is in NBC’s clown car, it’s only a matter of time before some of the others start to weigh in.
