The New York Post had a field day with its cover Friday after longtime NBC anchor Brian Williams was forced to recant a story he’d been telling for years: that a military helicopter he flew in was forced down by rocket fire in Iraq in 2003.
The tabloid’s cover depicted Williams as Pinocchio with a “nose for news” and gave the top news anchor the new moniker “Lyin’ Brian.”
