Dan Rather Comes to BriWi's Defense

When NBC's Brian Williams got caught in a lie and had to fess up, many in the broadcast industry quickly turned their back on Williams.

But one former network anchor that has had problems with telling the truth in the past, came to BriLie's....errrrrr BriWi's defense.

Former CBS Anchor Dan Rather said that he supports Williams and is a good guy.

“I don’t know the particulars about that day in Iraq,” Rather told Politico. “I do know Brian. He’s a longtime friend and we have been in a number of war zones and on the same battlefields, competing but together. Brian is an honest decent man, an excellent reporter and anchor–and a brave one. I can attest that — like his predecessor Tom Brokaw — he is a superb pro, and a gutsy one.”

Not sure how much having Dan Rather in his corner is going to help Brian Williams, but hey, at least Rather did have Brian's 6.
