Is Brian Williams‘ time at NBC over?
Smart money says that the anchor is done at NBC Nightly News after being caught embellishing multiple stories, but according to inside sources he won’t give up his job quietly!
One source says:
“Brian is saying he’s not going down without a fight and [is] threatening to make it really ugly — worse than Ann Curry.”
Brian IS represented by the same lawyer as Ann Curry, and NBC did not come out looking good in that case.
But in this case, it’s his reputation that’s been tainted. And since it’s his integrity in question, will anyone even believe his claims about the network?
In fact, some are wondering why NBC hasn’t fired the controversial newsman already! According to one source:
“They want Brian to resign. If they have to fire him, they can’t control him.”
Can he ever expect to come back?
On the one hand, the loss of Brian Williams seems to have meant a loss of ratings as well, with ABC taking the lead for the first time in years.
But will bringing him back now help? Or has he lost the trust forever?
