Bryan Williams sure screwed himself over with his dumb ass statements. I heard that he was also instrumental, along with Al Gore, in inventing the Internet.

I realise that Bill's Comment was "Tongue In Cheek". It was a question for me as to who really did. So for others who might be wondering the same thing. ........Sorry about the Second Part. It was very large and I did the best I could reducing and cleaning it up.

I don t think kicking an other wise good man after he made a mistake is become of an artist such as yourself. Stick to beautiful box designs.

If he cannot back up what he says and cannot take a little criticism then he should not be a public figure.
I didn't take the photos but I do find them humorous.

The astonishing thing is that as a public figure it never occurred to him or the people he worked for that as this figure many people including the units he ran with wouldn't call him/them on the anomalies.

He didn't make "A" Mistake. His EGO made him Broadcast and tell MANY LIES! See my Post at #3. How does that make him a ""wise good man"?

Well, he embellished his story a little more with each telling, until he probably actually BELIEVED what he was saying. But hell, which of us after a few beers has told a story and made the women prettier, the horses faster, the dog meaner and our work harder. But then again, I don't get paid $10mm to tell that story to millions on NBC network TV. It's matter of scale, balance and audience. I like the guy. Too bad he couldn't just rest on his own true laurels.

Brian Williams job was reporting the truth, he was in a position of trust from the public to inform them of important events. He betrayed that trust, we are not talking about some teenage boy trying to impress a girl or one redneck telling another a story.

I don't follow, Al Gore was instrumental to the creation of the Internet or at least the early Internet, not the Web, the Web rides on the Internet. Its like you are saying he didn't write MS-DOS this guy wrote Word.

He never said he invented it, he said he helped create it. Below is a message from two men that did the tech side of it.
"But a spirited defense of Gore's statement penned by Internet pioneers Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf (the latter often referred to as the "father of the Internet") in 2000 noted that "Al Gore was the first political leader to recognize the importance of the Internet and to promote and support its development" and that "No other elected official, to our knowledge, has made a greater contribution [to the Internet] over a longer period of time"
