Photo Removed From Podcast–NBC’s Lying News Anchor Brian Williams One Step Closer to Being Fired

Serial embellisher Brian Williams, the past NBC “Nightly News” anchor who is currently on suspension, is one step closer to being fired from the network. His photo has quietly been removed from the NBC News podcast webpage.

Already Williams’ name was removed from the “Nightly News” web portal and his name and face have also taken off the Facebook and Twitter feeds. But now the network has eliminated him from the podcast page, too.

Fueling further speculation that newsman Brian Williams won’t be returning to the NBC Nightly News after his suspension, the network has reportedly removed the anchor from an image that accompanies the program’s podcast on iTunes.

Before the change, Williams’ picture was attached to the podcast along with the title, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. But that has been replaced by a more generic image that simply advertises NBC Nightly News on Apple’s iTunes.

The branding change is the latest sign that the longtime network newsman may not return to the anchor’s chair once his six-month suspension is up in August. Williams received the suspension in February after an inaccurate report from 2003 on the Iraq War was brought to NBC’s attention.

Williams was put on suspension after he was finally called out for years of telling the lie that he was in a helicopter that was fired on over Iraq and forced to the ground. He was never, ever fired on.

Since that story–one he has for years been telling to everyone who will listen–dozens of other incidents where he lied about what he has done in his news career have turned up.

It seems more likely than ever that he won’t be back.
