NBC Calls President Washington a Terrorist

The NBC News broadcast Thursday evening presented a story about the new president of Iran, who may have been involved in taking American embassy personnel hostage in Tehran in 1979. During the story, Anchor Brian Williams said, "[S]everal U.S. presidents were at minimum revolutionaries, and probably were considered terrorists of their time by the Crown in England." The reporter responded, "Indeed".

Excuse me. George Washington and other early U.S. presidents did not kill civilians in the colonies or abroad as part of the Revolutionary War plan to gain independence from Britain. The NBC News anchor's comment and the reporter's agreement display their ignorance of history and the absurd world view of the media.
