For the first time on the "Today" show Friday, ousted NBC News anchor Brian Williams gave an interview about the inaccuracies in stories he told about covering the Iraq War.
"I said things that weren't true. ... I am sorry for what happened here, and I am different because of it, and I expect to be held to a different standard," said Williams.
Before this, Williams had said that he misremembered or exaggerated what happened while he was reporting on the Iraq war.
