Featured Audio

Tell the truth now, have you ever been known to embellish a good story to make it even better? Did you know you were doing it? Or is it possible you were just unaware that you weren't telling the truth? NBC News anchor Brian Williams says he just got confused about taking fire while in a wartime helicopter. His story was untrue. How often does that happen and when does a little embellishment become a big problem? Program originally aired Feb. 17, 2015.
