I watched Brian Williams' interview with Matt Lauer hoping to hear, once and for all, a contrite admission that Williams lied to us all. Repeatedly. And that he was deeply sorry for losing our trust. Expectations were high to say the least.
Honesty and integrity are all you have in the news business. I lost respect for Brian Williams, but not because he lied. I lost it because he refused to honorably resign.
A sincere apology by Mr. Williams confessing the litany of deceptions with full responsibility is a sin qua none for forgiveness. It is a far cry from being enough to give him any job back.

American guitarist Les Paul would have turned 100 years old this week. Born in Waukesha, Wisconsin on June 9, 1915, Paul became one of the most important figures in popular music during the middle decades of the twentieth century.
I love an underdog. In fact, I love everything about an underdog. From the wonderful journey of how they got here to how happy they are to just be in the room/arena/stadium with their highly-favored competition.
What does Brian do? Does he keep all of the money, or does he rescue the poor family from a life on the street? It's a good premise for a show. But that's just the start!
If you look at the Secret timeline, it's demise started last August, 2014. This inverted hockey stick trajectory came just days after it raised $25m in July. An investor's nightmare, no doubt.
Catchphrases were created and run into the ground for fun. I don't recall a single sentence of any foreign language I ever studied. But I do remember "too much lotion!" and "they pelted us with rocks and garbage!"
