In the midst of his botched memories in Iraq, NBC Nightly News weeknight anchor and managing editor Brian Williams has taken himself off the broadcast for the “next several days.”
Williams, according to NBC News:
“In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions.”
This announcement comes a day after his employer launched an investigation into the incident, in which Williams claimed that he was inside a helicopter struck by enemy fire.
Nightly News weekend anchor Lester Holt will take the anchor chair to “allow us to adequately deal with the issue.”
