Since Brian Williams admitted to lying about being on a helicopter that took fire in Iraq, many have wondered if he's lied about anything else.
Currently in question is Williams' depiction of seeing a dead body float by in New Orleans' French Quarter during Hurricane Katrina — an area that did not actually experience flooding.

Williams' claim that he got dysentery from accidentally ingesting floodwater during his Peabody Award-winning coverage of the storm is also under review.
The Iraq lie alone has led many to ask how long he'll remain as the anchor on NBC Nightly News.
According to NBC sources, one of the people looking for Williams to resign is his predecessor Tom Brokaw! A source said:
"Brokaw wants Williams' head on a platter. He is making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report."
According to other sources inside the network, Brokaw — who was the anchor when Williams was in Iraq — and NBC News President Steve Capus knew that Williams was lying.
Apparently Williams had even been told to stop telling the story.
Of course, if it does turn out Williams has lied about other news stories, this will only add more fuel to the fire.
