It was announced during the second half that Tom Brokaw was in attendance at the University of Oklahoma/Nebraska game at Owen Field in Norman. The minute he was announced, you could hear loud boos from around the stadium.
Have no idea how he had the nerve to return to OU after his debacle of a speech for graduation last May. I think he received louder boos then when Nebraska came out, and even more than the penalty we got for fans throwing oranges onto the field near the end of the game.
Chalk this one up to flyover country that detests the mainstream news media. You probably will never hear this from the media except our local radio but it was hilarious. Everyone around where we sit are Bush fans and after they stopped booing, they started laughing at the reaction of everyone. Then they launched into a discussion about how biased the so-called mainstream media was in the election and how people like Brokaw should stay out of the red states. It made me really proud of the Sooner fans -- this truly is Bush Country.
Heh.......that's too cool!
Good news, the MSM getting their due.
Because, in Brokaw's eyes, the WWII generation fought right-wing Nazis, and the other generations faced more respectable left-wing foes. He hasn't figured out that Nazi = National Socialist.
bingo! Good point
Why are ALL American generations not GREAT??

LOLOLOLOLOL........you made my day........just heading out and stopped to check FR.........LOLOL......I'll be running errands with the biggest smile on my face!!!
Doubt if we get anymore news anchors at our football games. :)
Glad you enjoyed -- having Brokaw boo'd on top of the election results here in OK truly was priceless! :)
I sees how y'all red state folks is getting all uppity with yer betters. AND I LOVES IT!!!
I heard Brokaw on c-span sticking up for gunga dan and his 'report'. Also he said some awful things about us. Just from his tone you could hear his disgust of the Christians.
WHAT THEN ?.... LoL.... Could'nt happen to a more deserving guy.. Nah!... wrong.. there is indeed even more deserving guys.. AND gals.. Brokaw is a good start..
Sorry I missed it!
I recently submitted an obersvation to this event to a local newspaper in response to another. It was published yesterday.
As I might have expected coming from a Democrat family some balked at the observation.
However, as someone who has studied and researched media bias over the last several years to somehow assert that Brokaw was "fair and balanced" is stupid, idiotic and foolish. There was nothing fair or balanced about him and everyone knows full well.
And to those idiots who continue to persist in this mindset that ABC,CBS,NBC,CNN and their kind are infallible and can do no wrong like Dick Pryor from Norman I would highly suggest these idiots get off their fat lazy duffers and read two articles by Brent Bozell, a man who obviously has far more brians and intelligence than these bozos.
The articles I refer to are "Tom Brokaw vs. Conservative 'Jihad'" published January 14, 2004 and "Tom Brokaw's Strange Political Spectrum" Published October 23, 1997. You can find these articles at mediaresearch.org. Then just click "Bozell's column".
These people are not on our side. They're contiuning making it known by their actions that they want a society free of conservatives and they're going to do everything in their power to achieve those means even if it means destroying innocent people's lives and reputations.
These people are not our friends, they're our enemies and to expect us here in the heartland to give approval to the reckless and irresponsible way they choose to do their jobs is stupid, idiotic and foolish. Many people including myself place journalists at the bottom in terms or respectibility along with lawyers, used car dealers, and dooor-to-door salemen.
Where is the MSM story on this? Yea right. Like we would ever see that!
Probation was lifted. But you can still rejoice in the fact that Auburn didn't recieve an Orange Bowl invite.
