Brian Williams’ Katrina reporting under scrutiny

In a 2006 interview, Williams recalled watching a dead body float past his French Quarter hotel during post-Katrina flooding and described the hotel as “gang-ridden.” He was rescued from thugs in a stairwell by a New Orleans policeman, he said in 2007.

But as the Louisiana newspaper The Advocate reports today, the French Quarter remained dry during Katrina. It is the historic high ground for the city along the Mississippi River. Nor was it gang-ridden following the storm.

The paper further questions whether Williams could have contracted dysentery from accidentally drinking floodwater, as he has claimed.

Does Brian Williams have a 'Ted Baxter' problem? - CSMonitor.com

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Re: Brian Williams’ Katrina reporting under scrutiny

... The general public may not care so much. They already have a low opinion of journalists, who routinely rate below used-car salesmen and politicians in terms of public approval ...
Hehehe ... 'Ted Baxter' ... now that was a funny show, . This guy insults so many people in so many ways, IMO. It's one thing to be wrong when you're reporting a story, whole 'nother thing to make stuff up, .
