So +NBC News
suspends Brian Williams without pay for 6 months for lies that he told. To me, this seems more like +NBC
is trying to get rid of the problem and less like they are trying to actually solve it. When Brian Williams comes back in 6 months, all the trustworthiness problems are still going to be there.
A better solution would have been to dock Williams' pay in order to hire a dedicated fact-checker for +NBC Nightly News
. In this solution, Williams is sufficiently reprimanded, and viewers can keep on watching NBC News knowing that NBC has stepped up efforts to present only the best news.
