An NBC investigation into the reporting of suspended anchor Brian Williams has found at least 10 instances of exaggerations and embellishments, CNN and The Washington Post reported Saturday.
CNN quoted an unnamed person with knowledge of the internal investigation, which is not yet complete. The Post also quoted an unnamed person familiar with details of the probe, saying it turned up at least 11 instances of embellishing. NBC had no comment.
Williams was suspended from his position as NBC News’ chief anchor in February after he retracted a story about coming under enemy fire in Iraq while on a reporting tour in 2003.
NBC has launched an internal investigation, reportedly led by the head of the network’s investigative unit, into Williams’ reporting. After veterans criticized Williams’ account of the helicopter incident, news outlets challenged his reporting during Hurricane Katrina.
