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.

HOLLYWOOD – The mythical land of Narnia – first featured in the C.S. Lewis novels and later film adaptations – has been discovered to actually exist in Wyoming.
The land of Aslan and the Ice Queen was thought to have been merely a work of the imagination, but it was discovered on Thursday just north of Laramie.
Police Chief Harmon Likewise told The Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
I love The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. I took the young uns to see them. Little did I know that it was right here on my doorstep, so to speak. Under my very own nose. Of course I thought there was supposed to be a sea and eternal winter or something, but maybe Mr. Lewis just made that bit up.
Prof. Peter Greensdale – a Levite from Cambridge University – said that the discovery was ‘historic’.
For years we believed that C.S. Lewis had based Narnia on an Italian town called Narni. But on visiting Narnia, Wyoming my doubts vanished. There are talking animals, magic mythical beasts and bewildered English school children wearing pajamas.
Narnia has been bought by Farley Hamptons who has promised that the whole area will be developed commercially.
This is an opportunity like no other. We see a theme park, shopping malls, and Mr. Tumnus’ strip club, for the dads. Of course some of the more disturbing elements are going to have to go. Everything seems to be some kind of Christian allegory and we could shed some of that. After all this Wyoming, not Utah.
Morgan Spurlock’s documentary The Lion, the Witch and Wyoming will be broadcast on the Discovery Channel this evening.
NARNIA – Fans of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe were racked by multiple geekgasms today, when it was announced that James McAvoy would be returning to the pan pipes for Narnia spin off Mr. Tumnus Takes a Packet of Tea.
Many believed they had seen the last of the half naked, tea making and pipe playing fawn, but apparently world-wide demand could not be nay-sayed. On speaking to the Studio Exec earlier today, the Scottish actor who recently excelled in Filth seemed less than whole-heartedly enthusiastic.
Two words. Fer-uck. Have’ney seen enough of that irritating wee shite?
So you’re not looking forward to …
Am i not looking forward to frezing me wee nipples off? Nay I’m not. And for what? A children’s film! I cannae do it, not again.
So why are you doing it?
They pay well and they’ve said I can rewrite the script.
I’m gonna insist in my contract. Page one. Scene One. Mr. Tumnus knits a f*cking jumper. And he’s gonna be edgier too. He’s gonna snort cocaine and hang with some dirty beavers.
You mean the Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, voiced by the wonderful talent Dawn French and Ray Winstone?
No. I mean beavers. And I’m changing the title.
Mr. Tumnus Enters the Void will be released in 2016.
