    Poll choice 3 is to long so the whole choice is below.

    I agree he will be back, against my wishes. I guy that slips up and swears or something by accident, a second chance is ok. This clown - no.

    So he exaggerates and embellishes stories as time passes. So I have a hard time believing his accounts of things. So his credibility as a reporter is suspect.

    I voted career over but can he still read a teleprompter and work for TV? Yeah, just don't care to see him interview important people or be the lead reporter on news stories. He doesn't deserve the big bucks, fame, and prestige of head anchor. But then again not many of them do.

    I don't like the TV News anyway.

    I think he is done. Too many other people to fill his shoes. You don't get many chances to maintain your credibility and keep peoples trust. I think he will fade off into the sunset. If his ratings drop, no TV station will want him. One should definitely not lie about being shot down when you weren"t. It was disrespectful to all of our Veterans who were there serving our Country.

    He's an asshole. He was such an established reporter, he didn't need to lie about anything to build up his reputation.

    Fire the cork soaker - permanent job loss. You know damn well h'd get a golden parachute so no sweat for him. But no credibility for him ever again.
