Recently, The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Fox News’ Chairman Roger Ailes, and near the end of the interview, the Hollywood Reporter asked him about the return of NBC News chairman Andy Lack, and that led to talk about NBC News anchor Brian Williams.
Ailes spoke of Andy Lack and then commented on anchor Brian Williams, who was put on a hiatus by NBC due to falsifying accounts of his time in the Iraq war and New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
“Andy is a smart guy,” said Ailes. “He’s going to work on several problems at the same time. That in and of itself will make a difference. He’s got to make the right call on Brian Williams. I’d put Brian back.”
This makes total sense, because – as Mother Jones, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, Media Matters, and CNN have shown – Fox News’ own Bill O’Reilly has been caught numerous times in his own lies / fabrications / exaggerations, and O’Reilly never suffered any consequences.
