After being put on a six-month suspension from NBC News for literally making up news stories that never happened, shamed media anchor Brian Williams is now jumping ship to a different network that, conveniently for him, was built from the ground up on the concept of reporting fabricated stories: MSNBC.

Williams was recently given a key reporting position at the most “opinionated” cable news network in existence, according to a recent Pew Study, as part of a massive MSNBC rebranding initiative that aims to gain back viewers who fled for greener, more honest, pastures. But why MSNBC chose Williams as its poster boy is somewhat curious, as this former Nightly News anchor seems to embody the type of journalistic fraud that MSNBC is supposedly trying to expunge from its record.

It’s difficult to say, at this point, whether MSNBC is serious about actually trying to upgrade its reputation by bringing on Williams, or if the network is just “trolling” the American public by hiring one of the most tarnished names in mainstream media to steer the ship. Regardless, MSNBC appears to be going the way of The Onion by essentially rebranding itself as some kind of parody news outlet.

MSNBC lost an incredible number of viewers ever since it was revealed that, among all the major cable news networks, MSNBC focuses the least on reporting actual facts. One report on the Pew Study called MSNBC’s approach to reporting news nothing but a “bunch of ranting” – not exactly the most flattering description for this flailing network.

And yet, with all this in mind, it actually kind of makes sense that MSNBC would choose Brian Williams as the face of its network overhaul. The types of viewers that still watch MSNBC will probably welcome Williams with open arms, as he fits the image for a “breaking news” network that perpetuates conjecture and imaginary world events.
