Twitter mocks Brian Williams’ coverage of the Pope #HNNMedia


As Brian Williams returned to TV Tuesday with coverage of Pope Francis’ first U.S. visit, Twitter poked fun of the lying anchor’s history of “misremembering” stories.

With the hashtag #BrianWilliamsPopeStories, users shared exaggerated stories of the news anchor and the pontiff. Meanwhile, Williams kept his real coverage on MSNBC strictly focused on the Pope’s visit, failing to mention the lies that kept him off the air for six months. He nearly fired after an internal investigation found at least 11 instances in which Williams embellished details of stories involving himself — but was instead punished with a suspension.

Pope Francis landed in Washington D.C. Tuesday and will head to New York Thursday. He’ll make a stop in Philadelphia before heading home to Rome on Sunday.
