*(Via Newsy) – So, you’ve heard about this by now — Brian Williams apparently fabricated this story. (Video via CBS / “Late Show With David Letterman”)

“Two of our four helicopters were hit by ground-fire, including the one I was in,” he said.

“No kidding!” David Letterman replied.

Williams has said several times over the years that he was in a helicopter shot down by an RPG in the Iraq War — and was forced to apologize for his tale.

“I want to apologize. I said I was traveling in an aircraft that was hit by RPG fire; I was instead in a following aircraft,” he said on NBC.

The revelation has put the once-trusted anchor under immense pressure from both other journalists and the American public.

Cue the cross-examination. Now it seems Wiliams’ entire body of work will be pored over.

And one tale in particular is starting to stick out: When Williams was in New Orleans for Hurricane Katrina, he allegedly saw some pretty shocking stuff. (Video via Columbia Journalism Review)

“When you look out of your hotel room in the French Quarter and watch a man float by facedown,” he said in an interview.

The problem is this: Though the French Quarter was hit by Hurricane Katrina, it didn’t flood — so how did a body float down its streets?
