Larry Wilmore Compares Brian Williams to Stewart: 'Fake News Happens In Both Chairs' (NewsBusters)

During an appearance on ABC’s The View Thursday morning, Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore hilariously mocked NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams following his suspension surrounding lies he made about his reporting in Iraq.

When asked by co-host Rosie Perez if he would rather replace Jon Stewart or Brian Williams, Wilmore responded that while he would rather replace Stewart “apparently fake news happens in both chairs nowadays.”
