The owner of the hotel next to Brian Williams’s hotel during Katrina confirmed on Facebook that Williams was lying about massive flooding in the French Quarter.
Mark Wyant, owner of the Saint Hotel in New Orleans’ French quarter, said in the comment section of The Advocate that there was minimal flooding.
We confirmed that Wyant owned the hotel next door.
Updated: Another general manager confirmed that there was no flooding.
Gotnews.com was first to debunk Brian Williams’s claim of seeing a body floating by his French Quarter hotel room. The story has circulated widely.
Now the left-wing outlets like Little Green Footballs and Talking Points Memo are trying to debunk the debunking.

The disgraceful John Simerman of The Louisiana-based Advocate also weighed in, stealing yet another story.
Gotnews.com reached out to Josh Marshall but he insulted our work.
Looks like a retraction is needed, guys.
