Famous NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams takes time off from hosting the show amidst a scandal.

Brian Williams is one of the most beloved news anchors in the United States. It is surprising in what kind of scandal he is involved that requires him to take the step to leave the anchor post of the NBC Nightly News for "a number of days."

The scandal is about a story Brian Williams liked to tell about having been in a helicopter in Iraq that was hit and went down. The story dating back to 2008 has new been debunked. Brian Williams admitted that he was in a helicopter behind the one that went down. Why would he claim that in the first place? Vanity is a bitch.

Brian Williams issued this statement: "In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions. As managing editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue. Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us."

Good thing Brian Williams has a second career as rapper.
