Earlier this month, NBC News suspended anchor Brian Williams for making false claims about his experience reporting on the Iraq war. Now, in the wake of a Mother Jones story, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly is under fire for statements he made about covering the Falklands war. O'Reilly stands by his account and flatly denies the allegations. We discuss the Williams and O'Reilly cases and what they tell us about the state of the news media.
