Media Research Center Pres. Brent Bozell notes the irony of Tom Brokaw and NBC denouncing Mitt Romney’s ad using Brokaw's Nightly News broadcast from 1997.
"Come on, Tell The Truth, Tom! What really irks you is not that you're part of a presidential ad; it's that you're part of a Republican candidate's ad.”
In his denouncement, Brokaw actually has the audacity to claim, “I do no want my role as a journalist compromised for political gain by any campaign."
Responding to Brokaw’s professed concern for his journalistic integrity, Bozell recalls Brokaw’s legacy of shilling for Democrats:
“You used NBC and your anchor chair as a platform to promote Democratic agendas and delight in Republican setbacks for more than 20 years. And, you stood behind that reporting as a fair exercise in journalistic ethics, even when it was far from the truth.”
"If Tom Brokaw really cared about this kind of bias, he would do something about his own network and especially its sister network MSNBC given their outrageous pro-Obama nightly commentary disguised as news."See more "Right Views, Right Now"
