As the scandal surrounding Brian Williams’ lies continues to grow, NBC is holding a summit to discuss the future of the news anchor. Williams was revealed to have fabricated a story about being in a helicopter that was shot down in 2003 in Iraq and since then, a pattern has emerged of him consistently exaggerating stories from his past.
Katie Couric was linked with his job if he is indeed fired, but she already tweeted so say she wasn’t interested. Williams announced Saturday that he is taking a leave of absence, and it is unknown if he will ever return to his show. After the scandal, ABC’s News World Tonight easily beat NBC in the ratings.
