Brian Williams, the ex-NBC news anchor who lost his job for lying about a story where he said he was in a helicopter that was hit by ground fire in Iraq in 2003, went on MSNBC Wednesday night to slam “fake news,” claiming it influenced the U.S. election.
“Another former general in the Trump circle is receiving new attention,” Williams began. “His National Security Adviser-designate, Mike Flynn. Flynn’s son was fired by the Trump transition today for passing on fake news story via Twitter. But his dad, the retired Army three-star general has passed on some gems himself.”
“Here are a few: “Clinton is involved in child sex trafficking and has secretly waged war on the Catholic Church.” As well as charges that the president is a “jihadi” who “laundered” money for Muslim terrorists,” the anchor added. “As we talked about here last night, fake news played a role in the election and continues to find a wide audience. A BuzzFeed news study of Donald Trump’s own tweets where they followed back news stories to their root source found more of them came from Breitbart originally than any other single source.”
