NBC finds Brian Williams embellished at least 11 times

A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe, the Washington Post reports.
NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statements after he apologized in early February for saying on NBC Nightly News that a military helicopter in which he was travelling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire.
His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six months without pay and to investigate other statements he’s made.
