‘Put Down Your Noose’: Michael Moore Defends Brian Williams, Hits ‘Real Liars’

Filmmaker and liberal activist Michael Moore came to the defense of Brian Williams on Sunday night, wondering why the media cares more about Williams’ misstatements than lies from people who made actual decisions about the Iraq War.

Moore’s comments, echoed by Jon Stewart last night, mostly centered around how “an entire country was demolished, trillions were wasted, thousands of our troops were killed & wounded, tens/hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians were killed, and now, FINALLY, someone is paying for Iraq war lies… and it’s Brian fucking Williams?????”

He makes fun of Williams a bit for some of the fluff that makes it onto NBC Nightly News but Moore also recalls him as “a man with integrity” in the news who actually wanted to hear from anti-war voices.
