Is Brokaw planning to run for Hitlery's Senate seat in 2006? Thought I heard that somewhere or other awhile back...

So the position's open? How about one of us? We'll do the NBC Nightly News, and just read right from the breaking news column.

The good news continues.

What a great final big election show for this lying Progressive DemonicRat happened on election nite.

Adios Tom, may the doors of life keep slamming on your lying/biased rat butt.

How is this an exclusive? It has been reported for over a year that Brokaw would be leaving after the election.

Can you say BRIAN WILLIAMS?

I did notice that Brokenjaw was rather (no pun intended) irritated election night...that they wouldn't call certain states for Bush when it was obvious that he had won them, while calling states like NJ with only 1% of the precinct in. Maybe he was feeling....nah.

Having minored in Speech in college, I am "deeply saddened" to see Mr. Brokaw leave. Perhaps he can teach "The Moral Responsiblity of Yellow Journalism in America and How It Is Vital to Shape Public Opionion and Corrupt Minds."

One down, two to go.

IMO their best pick would be Lester Holt.

"Ah, the dynasty of the MSM begins to crumble. Rather will be next."

I LOVE IT!!

I was channel surfing after watching Newt on "This Week", and just happened to land on CNN as the host was interviewing Blowkaw about his planned departure and saying, well, I guess we have some sort of "exclusive" here.

I hit record and have a lot of it videotaped. Would have to rewind the tape to get exact quotes, but before I waste my time doing that, I think I'll wait until I see Fox's coverage of that announcement to get the details.

Network executives have decided that it is "more efficient" to simply air reruns of older broadcasts for the next 4 years.

Nobody will ever notice the difference.

Stepping down from what??? The man is a talking head on TV. Nothing more. He is retiring or quitting or whatever. Take a bucket of water from the ocean, see where the hole is, same with this idiot.

Some "Exclusive". Everyone in the world, besides Chicken Noodle News, has known about this since last April.

Brokaw to say goodbye to 'Nightly News' Dec. 1

To be replaced no doubt by another arrogant elitist leftist com-symp.

It doesn't matter who is sitting in the chair, the MSM must die, in the interests of national secutity.

I never watch the man, EVER. But Rush played a clip of him yesterday and I swear, he was either very drunk or had had a stroke! He was slurring his words and was out of it.

I heard it. He didn't look or sound too swift when he was being interviewed on CNN today, either. Maybe he'll be heading down to Broward County, Florida after the interview for that "post-election-dejection syndrome" treatment. LOL

Tom Brokaw got pretty far in the news-reading business -- for a guy who never learned how to pronounce any word containing the letter 'L'.
