MSNBC’s Brian Williams came under fire Friday for coming up with another broadcast “beauty” during his coverage of the US strike on Syria.
Williams – who was famously bounced from his NBC gig for fabricating stories – was apparently mesmerized by the sight of cruise missiles blazing through the night sky.
“We see these beautiful pictures at night from the decks of these two UN Navy vessels in the eastern Mediterranean,” Williams told his viewers on “The 11th Hour.”
“I am tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen: ‘I am guided by the beauty of our weapons,’” he added. “They are beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments making what is for them what is a brief flight over to this airfield.”
He then asked his guest, “What did they hit?”
