According to the LA Times, “an executive familiar with the matter” says that Williams will not face disciplinary action for embellishing an oft-repeated account — that his helicopter took a hit from an RPG right before the US-led invasion of Baghdad — and that his public apology during his Wednesday night broadcast was “accepted internally.” NBC has so far not publicly released a statement.

That said, Williams’s appearances outside of NBC Nightly News may be curtailed, with the Times predicting that his “Slow Jam the News” segments with Jimmy Fallon may disappear for a while for fear of being “inappropriate.” (No word on what will happen to the Brian Williams raps.)
