Brian Williams may have harmed NBC News when he told Jon Stewart that all of his work is fact checked.
Brian Williams spoke to Jon Stewart in July 2003 about all the “checks and balances” at NBC News.
Williams: “Every word I write before it goes on air goes through all kinds of traps and filters and it is read by all kinds of different people who point out biases.”
Stewart: People check what you guys do?
Williams: It is hard to believe. Yup.
Stewart: We gotta get one of them.
Williams: We have a whole slew of people.
