    MSNBC's Brian Williams Encourages Viewers to Share Storm Photos, ‘Pretend’ They’re Their Own

    MSNBC's The 11th Hour host Brian Williams is probably regretting a flippant comment he made during the network’s live coverage of Hurricane Irma on Sunday afternoon, after it earned him mockery online. While discussing a photo reporters in Tampa, Florida had taken of the intense winds, Williams instructed Florida viewers to not take similar photos of their own. Instead, he suggested they steal this photo, share it, and “pretend you shot it.”

    “We’ll look the other way,” he helpfully added.

    His comment probably wouldn’t have received much attention if it had been made by any other person, but Williams’ own background of lying in his reporting, made him the last person who should make such a joke.

    The disgraced NBC Nightly News anchor was fired in 2015, after repeatedly recounting a made up story where he came under enemy fire while reporting overseas during the Iraq War. He was reinstated later in the same year, but lost his position as anchor at NBC, and didn’t get his own show again until the fall of 2016 on MSNBC at 11pm.
