Making stuff up always catches you out eventually

Brian Williams is already suspended without pay for 6 months after being busted telling lies about his past.

But now his entire life and public comments are being unpacked…and it is being discovered that he is a real life Walter Mitty, who has spent his entire career fabricating his attendance at more events than even Kris Faafoi.

Now he is busted?making up watching the Berlin Wall come down.

Yet another dubious firsthand claim by Brian Williams has come to light, this one involving one of the most significant moments in the 20th century: the demolition of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

During a forum discussion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in 2008, Williams was asked by an audience?member to tell about his biggest ?wow? journalistic moment.

?What was my wow ? I?ve been so fortunate,? he said. ?I was at the Brandenburg Gate the night the wall came down.?

The only problem, as CBS Los Angeles notes, is that Williams was assuredly not there the ?night the wall came down.? The only American anchorman there to report the historic moment live was Tom Brokaw. Williams arrived the next day.

Kris Fa'afoi – Memories are Fake but Accurate

With Kris Fa’afoi’s constant mis-speaking it reminded me of the Dan Rather/CBS stich up of George W. Bush, an apalling piece of journalism that ultimately cost Dan Rather his job. The New York Time famously ran the headline:

Memos on Bush Are Fake but Accurate, Typist Says

It got me thinking. Since we know that Kris Fa’afoi met Richard Nixon we know he appeared in the 50’s and 60’s when he also met Elvis Presley. But did he meet that other liar of the era Dan Rather?

Perhaps like the Killian Documents, Kris Fa’afoi’s memories are fake but accurate?

I scoured Google images, and it turns out that he did meet Dan Rather, and with Richard Nixon no less as well. Three liars in the same room. I’m starting to believe that maybe Kris Fa’afoi doesn’t have a Tardis but is an immortal like in Highlander, never dying but popping up in history unable to be killed.

“And here we are,?We’re the princes of the universe,?Here we belong, fighting for survival,?We’ve come to be the rulers of you all”
