The fallout from Brian Williams’ disputed war story has been marked by “difficult days” for NBC News, according to a staff memo from NBC News President Deborah Turness Friday.
According to the memo, NBC News has convened a team dedicated to “gathering the facts to help us make sense of all that has transpired,” around the incident. Williams and Turnes both addressed the Nightly News team Thursday, and the wider NBC News staff Friday. At that meeting, Williams reiterated his apology for the “impact this has had” on NBC News.
Here’s the memo:
This has been a difficult few days for all of us at NBC News.
Yesterday, Brian and I spoke to the Nightly News team. And this morning at the Editorial Exchange, we both addressed the wider group. Brian apologized once again, and specifically expressed how sorry he is for the impact this has had on all of you and on this proud organization.
