Former NBC News Correspondent Accuses Tom Brokaw of Sexual Harassment
It's time for a national conversation about the systematic rape culture going on at NBC News. First it was Matt Lauer (see Matt Lauer Fired, Allegedly Sexually Assaulted Staffer During Olympics and Matt Lauer Sexually Assaulted Staffer So Hard, She Needed a Nurse). Now, allegedly Tom Brokaw can't keep his grubby paws to himself. So says a former NBC News correspondent.
[Linda Vester] alleged Brokaw tickled her in an NBC conference room in Denver in 1993 while they were covering a papal visit.
A papal visit?
“I’m standing there, and Tom Brokaw enters through the door and grabs me from behind and proceeds to tickle me up and down my waist,” she says in a video interview.
“I jumped a foot and I looked at a guy who was the senior editor of ‘Nightly [News],’ and his jaw was hanging open. Nobody acted like anything wrong was happening, but I was humiliated.”
Vester also claimed Brokaw tried to kiss her in her hotel room in 1993, then again at a London restaurant the next year.
A second woman told The Washington Post that he acted inappropriately toward her in the ’90s, when she was a young production assistant.
Yet another case of a douchey TV personality putting his mitts where they don't belong. At the same time, leftist celeb types want to lecture us on right and wrong. Which makes about as much sense as Michael Moore pulling nutritional tips from his gelatinous ass. In one fell swoop, the celebs hands go from to disseminating self-righteous tweets on morality to fondling females without consent. Pathetic.
Jokes aside, we should probably be careful here. Because again, this is all alleged. You know, due process and whatnot. Brokaw denies it. Vester says she decided to come clean because "she was unhappy with how the network was handling sex-harassment allegations against former “Today” host Matt Lauer." Which was last November.
NBC News fired Matty and left him wandering around the Hamptons in disgrace. I'm not sure what more the peacock people are supposed to do. Or why she would come out six months later with claims against another anchor.
For now, I'm sure we can all agree to revel in the misery of yet anotherliberal icon turning out to be a PINO. Progressive In Name Only. Again allegedly.
