I don't watch TV anymore. I especially don't watch any news programs. Brian Williams "CONflation" conflagration is one of the reasons why. Shocking! Just shocking that he lied about his courageous war "story." Guess what? They are all liars. These people are hacks. They tow the line and report what their corporate masters tell them to. Brian Williams is a liar and he's probably lying about his "leave of absence" too. These people are part of the reason we got into the Iraq War in the first place. The fact is we are being lied to all the time by "journalists" by politicians, the church, the NSA, Bill Cosby (a rapist and a liar) and when Brian Williams leaves NBC for good, they'll probably get another liar to take his place.

But, no biggie right? Only 2% where does he get that figure?
We are being lied to and bullshitted at every level. So Brian Williams lies are really no surprise, decency has been left behind long ago, it's at the point now where if someone's not lying, it's a big surprise. That's the reality. The reality is that we are given no other choice but to seek alternate methods of seeking the truth. TV is not one of them. Cable TV is a joke too. Just wait until cable becomes even more expensive after the Comcast acquisition of Time-Warner, there's nothing like paying top dollar for lies.The craziest part of the whole Brian Williams war story lie is that viewership only went down 17%, the amazing part is that anyone would watch him at all, but maybe that's a lie too? That's the problem when you are constantly bombarded by falsehoods, bullshit and half truths, distracting you and keeping you confused. You look at the world with fresh eyes and you realize there is very little substance and almost no context, leaving you unable to discern any truth at all. I question everyone and everything now. Thanks to Brian Williams word salad of
"Conflation occurs when the identities of two or more individuals, concepts, or places, sharing some characteristics of one another, seem to be a single identity — the differences appear to become lost. In logic, it is the practice of treating two distinct concepts as if they were one, which produces errors or misunderstandings as a fusion of distinct subjects tends to obscure analysis of relationships which are emphasized by contrasts. However, if the distinctions between the two concepts appear to be superficial, intentional conflation may be desirable for the sake of conciseness and recall." Wikipedia
"Producing errors" and misunderstandings, that's the whole intention of lying. So now I have another description for someone who is telling lies, he's "conflating" this should come in handy in my daily life when confronted by someone 'misremembering" I'll just say oh yeah, he was "conflating" again, and get on with my day. The reality is, it happens all the time.
