Well, someone in head office actually found their cajones & made a decent start.

NBC News: Brian Williams suspended for 6 months without pay

Quote:
NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams has been suspended for six months without pay following his false claims about an experience he had during the Iraq war, NBC News president Deborah Turness announced Tuesday night.
Don't know about this, though...

Quote:
Steve Burke, the CEO of NBC Universal, said Williams' actions "are inexcusable and this suspension is severe and appropriate." However, Burke also said Williams "deserves a second chance and we are rooting for him."
M'bold.

Hmmm. Severe would have been firing his sorry butt along with a statement declaring that he'd never announce news again, anywhere. And, after all the BS he's spewed over the years, how can he possibly deserve a second chance?

Actually it was Israel that called for it incessantly, but Bush II was the one who obliged and last I heard he still a Republirat.

That said, Obushma stayed the course nicely but then he too is a Republirat in disguise.

Yep, but a host of Democrats, including His Billship weighed in on the necessity of the endeavour--and on those weapons of mass destruction.

As I have consistently stated: They are all the same. Does not matter whether they are red-white or blue they all answer to the same overlords.

The masters wanted war and their demands were met. Met without the slightest whimper of protest from any of the Congressional rats. More importantly without the slightest pretense of scrutiny from the lame stream media, which is a bit closer to the topic of the thread.

My point was that they would have been more vigorous, had there not been prior Democrat blessing.

Seems much more likely that the same overlords who rule Congress, also call the shots for the lame stream media.

I doubt it, or the Republicans would not have such a tough time while in power.

3 young Muslims killed by gunman in US



Quote:
Three young Muslims were killed by a gunman in the US state of North Carolina on Tuesday.

A statement from police in the town of Chapel Hill confirmed they were questioning a suspect over the murder of three people at 5 pm local time.

Local media reported that the victims were 23-year old Deah Shaddy Barakat, his wife Yusor Mohammad, 21, and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19.

An American football and basketball fan, Deah was believed to be a dental student at the University of North Carolina and volunteered with a charity providing emergency dental care to children in Palestine.

UNC officials said Deah and Yusor got married less than two months ago, in late December. She had been planning to begin her own dental studies in Chapel Hill this autumn.

WRAL news reported that a 46-year old man, Craig Stephen Hicks, turned himself in to the Chatham County Sheriff's Office in Pittsboro after the attack.

Craig Stephen Hicks read paralegal studies at Durham county's Technical Community College. Hicks described himself as an atheist on Facebook and posted regular images and text condemning all religions.

Activists on social media shared pictures of the victims and criticised US media for its lack of coverage of the murder.
