Tom Brokaw has been accused of sexual harassment by a former female colleague. Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell and other liberals in media who have insisted that the victim must always be believed, are siding with Brokaw and have even signed a letter in his defense.
Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, and More Female Colleagues Co-Sign Letter Supporting Tom Brokaw
A group of female journalists has penned a letter in support of embattled former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw.
On Thursday, reports surfaced that Brokaw sexually harassed war correspondent Linda Vester in the 1990’s. Another unnamed woman also came forward with a claim of sexual misconduct.
In response, Brokaw adamantly denied the accusations, railing against Vester and insisting his accuser has unleashed “a torrent of unsubstantiated criticism and attacks on me more than twenty years after I opened the door for her.”
He also appears Brokaw has the support of a number of high profile NBC journalists including Rachel Maddow and Andrea Mitchell.
In a letter obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, both past and current colleagues of Brokaw write that the seasoned journalist “has treated each of us with fairness and respect. He has given each of us opportunities for advancement and championed our successes throughout our careers.”
They would do the same thing if Sean Hannity was accused, right?
