NEW YORK – Following revelations that NBC’s Brian Williams Iraq story was mis-remembered, the veracity of other reports by the veteran reporter including his award winning Narnia coverage have been called into question.
Xampard Brunt media watcher and expert spoke to the Studio Exec about the scandal which is already being called Narnia-gate:
Brian Williams’ coverage of Narnia and specifically his war coverage that saw the defeat of the Ice Queen by Aslan and his assembled armies was both award-winning and compelling television in the finest tradition of Edward Murrow, but it is now becoming evident that not only was Brian Williams not involved in the centaur fire fight with Mr. Tumnus as his first hand account suggested, but that he might not even have been in Narnia during the war.
But surely Narnia is a fictional realm full of magical creatures and written by the Christian fabulist C.S. Lewis.
And your point is?
That it doesn’t really… well… exist.
That would explain many of the holes in Mr. Williams’ story and the reason ABC have been unable to get a reporter there. Fox News however has Oliver North stationed in Narnia permanently. It all begins to make sense.
