Brian Williams Complains About Fake News After Losing Job for Fake News

“There’s been a lot of coverage in the real news about the growing and booming business of creating fake news”

MSNBC’s Brian Williams bemoaned the prevalence of “fake news” Wednesday evening despite losing his job with NBC’s Nightly News last year for spreading fake news.

Williams, who lost his position as NBC anchor in 2015 after lying about being under RPG fire while in a helicopter during the Iraq war, warned viewers of the “growing and booming” business of fabricated content.

“And lately there’s been a lot of coverage in the real news about the growing and booming business of creating fake news,” Williams said.

The disgraced anchor also lamented the Trump transition team for spreading “fake news” post-election.

“Fake news played a role in this election and continues to find a wide audience,” Williams added.

Social media was quick to criticize Williams following the report for what they saw as both hypocrisy and irony.

While the term “fake news” initially refered to websites that knowingly published fictional stories, the establishment press, whose approval rating among the public is at an all-time low, has now aimed the term at the increasingly popular independent media.

As argued by Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson, the mainstream media’s fake news is the only fake news that has resulted in actual damage.

“The entire ‘fake news’ narrative being pushed by the mainstream media has nothing whatsoever to do with concerns over people being misled,” Watson says. “If that were the case, the mainstream media itself would stop habitually lying to the American people and its trustworthiness wouldn’t be in the toilet.”

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

Michael Ellner

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
