Over the last few days we have witnessed the dethroning of Brian Williams. His unraveling is due to the recklessness of his own tongue, but social media pulled and carried the thread. He told his tall tale on his news show and he was challenged first on his Facebook page by a real soldier who was there. Facing an eyewitness Williams pled guilty to misremembering, but he did it with a wink and a smile. The Twitter brigade took that as their marching orders and their criticism was swift and brutal. The mockery was withering and Williams simply “lost face”. In all likelihood we will not see Williams back in the anchor chair. “Pride goeth before destruction and a fall.” Bye Brian we know he will be back but he will be sitting in a new seat.
Brian Williams lied, but social media killed his career
