Reacting to the news on Tuesday that NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams had been suspended for six months indefinitely without pay, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell joined Sean Hannity on his Fox News Channel (FNC) show and described the decision as “very strange” considering how the lies Williams told are “not going to go away.”

Appearing with Hot Air’s Noah Rothman and investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, Bozell led off the segment by observing how “the statements made by the NBC executives” only reference the false statements Williams had made about being shot down over Iraq in 2003 and not questions about his reporting during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 or the 2006 Lebanon War.
