Brian Williams, the former anchor of NBC Nightly News who was demoted for lying during his reports, recently spent an entire show segment on ‘Trump’s lies.’
The segment raised some eyebrows because Williams was once suspended from NBC for six months after reports surfaced that he had fabricated multiple stories during his career.
He was suspended without pay at that time and was later reassigned as “breaking news reporter” for MSNBC.
Williams now anchors the 11 p.m. hour on MSNBC, where he recently had a segment on his show titled, “Why Nobody Cares About Trump’s Lying.”
Wisconsin radio host, Charlie Sykes was his guest during the segment.
“The cumulative effect of the attacks [on the mainstream media] was to delegitimize those outlets and essentially destroy much of the Right’s immunity to false information,” said Sykes. “We thought we were creating a savvier, more skeptical audience. Instead, we opened the door for President Trump who found an audience that could be easily misled.”
