    I was being disingenuous. Mea Culpa.

    Still, an anchor should be up enough on the main issues of the day to know whether or not what he is saying is true. If he or she is only a pretty face with good pipes merely reiterating what is being fed, don't call yourself a journalist. Call yourself a celebrity, a pop icon, whatever... but not a journalist.

    You were right and I was wrong. Brian Williams is probably not a liar. He's just not a very good journalist.

    Intent is important. It speaks to character.

    I was struggling with a friend who claims to be a moderate while everything he espouses is the hard rightwing line. I came back in here with a chip on my shoulder and made a statement that my heart and better judgment would shun. I was wrong to do that, no matter what my mood.

    I apologize to all involved.
