  • Did Brian Williams Lie About Seeing Dead Bodies Floating During Katrina?

    Century-old New Orleans paper The New Orleans Advocate has obliterated several accounts that big fat lying NBC News anchor Brian Williams told while he was reporting live from New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina.

    One humongous lie was Williams’ claim that he saw a dead body floating down the street from his hotel window in the French Quarter. “When you look out of your hotel window in the French Quarter and watch a man float by face down, when you see bodies that you last saw in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, and swore to yourself that you would never see in your country,” Williams said in 2006.

    The truth is the French Quarter is way above sea level and there was no flooding there during Katrina, the Advocate reports.

    “Williams’ accounts of seeing a body float by in the French Quarter—which remained largely dry—and even a claim of catching dysentery from drinking Katrina floodwaters have raised eyebrows,” Advocate writer John Simerman wrote.

    The Katrina lies are all being piled on top of the already huge mountain of lies Williams told about being in a helicopter in Iraq that was struck by RPG fire and forced to land during the 2003 invasion.

    It’s also being reported that Tom Brokaw, the man who Brian Williams replaced at NBC, has called for Williams’ head on a platter.

    Watch the video above of Williams’ 2006 Katrina interview where he said, “when you look out of your hotel window in the French Quarter and watch a man float by face down, when you see bodies that you last saw in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, and swore to yourself that you would never see in your country.”

    And watch Brian Williams exaggerate his Katrina experience even further in this doozy right here:
