(Not) Saving Private Brian

Of course, no one cares about Brian Williams' lies about helicopters and RPG's. The lies that matter are his lies (of commission and omission) about politics and world affairs for the past couple of decades. Those lies have been uncountable and scandalous--the failure to vet Obama, failure to tell the truth about Islam, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, Gosnell, the list goes on and on.

But libs are calling for his head, surprisingly. Why would a bunch of lefties want a guy who lied like a rug for them for decades fired?

Wa Po Dem water-carrier Ruth Marcus is breath-takingly honest:
Brian Williams needs to go 
... [Hillary] Clinton’s sniper-fire statement is, no doubt, a blot on her record. It is not a disqualifying blot. Journalists come to the job with only their credibility to offer. We expect less from politicians in terms of total truth-telling. Spin is part of the business model...
Either way, the untenable nature of Williams’s position becomes even clearer. Imagine that Clinton’s sniper story becomes a campaign issue. How does Williams, in the anchor chair, comfortably report that news, even after six months away?
How can Brian Williams lie effectively for Hillary Clinton, when Williams is a known liar, and his value to the left is fatally compromised? Lies are ineffective if told by a known liar. It's unknown liars that they need.

There's gonna be a need for a lot of lies for Hillary in 2016, and the MSM can't rely on a known liar to do it.
