Brian Williams may be caught in a lie — again.
The 'NBC Nightly News' anchor's coverage of Hurricane Katrina is now under review after online bloggers began speculating some of the compelling narratives he told of the conditions in New Orleans during the 2005 natural disaster may have been embellished.
“When you look out of your hotel room window in the French Quarter and watch a man float by face down, when you see bodies that you last saw in Banda Aceh in Indonesia and swore to yourself that you would never see in your country,” Brian, 55, said of his Katrina experience in a 2006 interview.

That particular account is now being scrutinized because several news outlets previously noted the French Quarter saw little flooding during the storm, according to 'The New Orleans Advocate.'

This newest update comes just days after Brian admitted to fabricating portions of a story he allegedly told about his reporting experience during the Iraq war in 2003.
“I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago,” the father-of-two said during the national news broadcast on Wednesday, Feb. 4.

“I want to apologize. I said I was traveling in an aircraft that was hit by (rocket propelled grenade) fire. Instead, I was in the following aircraft,” the anchor said.
Following his apology, former 'NBC Nightly News' anchor Tom Brokaw, 75, reportedly stated he wants Brian fired over the exaggerated reports.
According to 'Page Six,' Tom has been "making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report."
Brian took over the 'NBC Nightly News' broadcast from Tom in 2004.
