    Fire his A$$

    We have become so “BURN THEM AT THE STAKE!!!” as if we all don’t live in glass houses. Yeah, he’s got some serious consequences to bear coming his way because in the profession he’s in, if the public can’t trust what you’re reporting, than what good are you BUT, this salivating by the public for his head to be on a platter is sad to me. Ye without sin………… know the rest.

    Agree to an extent however… in his chosen profession dishonesty is and should be a career ending consequence.

    No one is without sin but he should step down.

    Yeah, I think he IS done as an on air reporter but I don’t believe his career is. He’ll probably become a consultant on cable not unlike a politician who finds another way to contribute their expertise after scandal. I don’t expect we’ll see him on NBC much longer. There’s new accusations of exaggerations re: KATRINA but I missed not a moment of anyone’s reporting even to sleep from the first moment the levee broke and I can’t say with a straight face what he DIDN’T see because the things before more eyes were unbelievable and I wasn’t even there.

    someone explain it… he knowingly lied about the story to make himself look amazing?? but if it happened such a long time ago why is it only coming out now?

  • suzybel

    Yeah ok, go ahead and gather facts to make sense of this, idiots.
