image for Brian Williams Fondly Recalls Winning Olympic Gold Medal, Winning Oscar & Landing On The Moon
Utter Shit

"NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams could face new questions this week over differing versions of a story he repeatedly told about winning an Olympic Gold Medal in 1976.

The Washington Post reported late Sunday that Williams has given differing accounts of how he ran the 100 meters at the Montreal Olympics in under 10 seconds. However Hasely Crawford of Trinidad and Tobago claims that he in fact won the race. Williams is now claiming that he actually misspoke, and he actually won the 200 meters.

A month later, Williams made an appearance on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show", and told host Jon Stewart about "the day I landed on the moon with Buzz Lightyear and Louis Armstrong, phew, that was a blast."

Williams, who has anchored NBC's flagship newscast since 2004, announced late Saturday that he was stepping away from "Nightly News" for "the next several days" following revelations that he is a total and utter bullshitter.

Questions have also been raised about his claim that he won an Oscar in 2005.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
