What’s frightening, Tom? The fact that we are able to GOOGLE a person’s past and play VIDEO clips of their actual words?! Or the fact that we are able to dig up past quotes and signed petitions and officially-held seats on boards of questionable associations?! You cannot operate in the dark any longer, Tom. Does that frighten you?

Well, gee, Tom. Why didn’t you responsible journalists shed the light of truth on the Van Jones matter by debunking all of these ridiculous right-wing claims? And why don’t you ask left-wing politicians which of Van Jones’ statements they agree with, so that they can distance themselves from him?

Hey, Brokaw! It’s pretty simple, really. Pay close attention: If it wasn’t true, he wouldn’t have to resign.
Let me repeat that for ya: If it wasn’t true, he wouldn’t have to resign.

Got it? Didn’t think so...

It’s time to take back the country.

Tom Brokaw: "It's frightening, frankly."

Say what you want about the Internet, Tom, but those of is who get our news here at least knew who Obama was before he was elected.

Whereas you and your colleagues publicly admitted to being completely clueless about him right up until the election.

Of course, you guys only had the research resources of the entire MSM at your disposal, whereas I had my laptop.

What they won't admit is that you can post something on the Internet and people who know something about it will respond on a half-dozen sites independently. Doesn't matter what the subject is.

Can you imagine these guys posting their nightly broadcast at 2 PM and letting everyone take shots at it. They cannot withstand that level of scrutiny. Or worse, they don't want to.

Well, if that isn’t the kettle calling the pot black.

These people don’t vet anything. They cheat; lie and make everything up as they go along while blaming everyone else for doing what they are doing.

They are the ones that are killing the truth.

That’s pretty funny - Brokaw saying “you have to vet information.” Just like the news crews vetted anything that obama has said or done from day one? Or when they picked up rumors about Sarah Palin directly from Kos and Huffington AS FACT? It’s too late. They’ve lost their audience and lost their credibility and it’s kind of fun to watch them try to act like they’re taking the high road now.

Agreed. The sewer of misinformation was the discussion on that panel.

Tom Brokaw is just mad that the internet provided the PROOF of the Trush of what was the avenda of Van Jones. His OWN WORDS THAT HE SPOKE were the sewer that skewered him; nothing on the internet per se.

I make time to watch the Sunday Morning talking heads to see how they will mangle the news. Weekly, they confirm that they are still pathetic. I rely on FOX and internet for true news reporting. That is why this Mark Lloyd “diversity czar” needs to apply to work at the Chavez administration.

On this subject, here's a great quote from Jonah Goldberg re: Brokaw

Van Jones & Obama's "Centrism" (Jonah Goldberg)… The Corner ^ | 6 September 2009 | Jonah Goldberg

“……………Update: Oh and the conversation between Tom Brokaw and Tom Friedman about the lessons of Van Jones was a complete scandal. One of Friedman's key take-aways from this whole affair is that too many people will self-censor themselves so they can get government jobs. What a tragedy that fewer people will support cop-killers and anti-American conspiracy groups because of poor Van Jones chilling effect on the culture.

Oh, and listening to Friedman and Brokaw disparage the internet as a useless news medium, makes them sound like cranky old monks lamenting that flash-in-the-pan printing press.”

It’s absolutely amazing isn’t it. These people have no shame whatsoever, they still think they can lie etc. and no one is going to find out about it, that may have been the case years ago but not anymore, everything is out there for everyone to see, plain and simple and it’s about time we started showing them what we know about them, one commie down, several more to go, who shall be next........czar #1?, czar #16?? We need to keep up the pressure, soooooooooo many commies, soooooo little time............

Brokaw wouldn't know a news story if it bit him on the butt!

Thank God for FR and for the genuine INTERNET REPORTERS who are reporting on the news stories the cowards in the State Run Media refuse to run because they are either affraid of being labled "racists" or because they are afraid to lose their cushy jobs or because they are genuinly affraid for their and their families physical safety (this is the Obamessiah from Kenya, Chicago THUG administration we are talking about.) or lastly because their noses are so far up Obama;s butt they can no longer smell or see a story even if it is right in front of them =

Van Jones, the avowed communist, socialist, Marxist, 9/11 "truther" who hates America and white people and who SAID in print and on video that he wants to destroy the American system and rebuild it into a communist black racist "utopia"! All of this information was available and out there for ANY state run media journalist to see and report on, BUT THEY ALL REFUSED. So we, along with Glenn Beck and others are doing their job for them and they have the unmitigated gaull to call our reporting an "Open Sewer of Disinformation"!

Thank God Brokaw is no longer on TV, the man is a buffoon!

Tom, the truth is frightening to those who have something to lose by it. Jones had a lot to lose...but the truth of who he was caught up with him. It will ultimately catch up with your chosen one as well.

That's because, despite your (and the rest of the MSM' for that matter) unwillingness to report on it, BArack Hussein Obama cannot run from who he is.

Van Jones = Frank Davis = Bill Ayers = Bernardine Dohrn = Jeremiah Wright = Tony Rezko = Rashid Khalidi = Raila Ordinga = Carol Browner = Rahm Emanuel = Henry Gates = John Holdren = Rosa Brooks = Eric Holder = Ezekiel Emanuel = BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

This is who the man is. A cauldron of corruption, greed, marxism and communism...someone who is doing all in hips power to destroy the free market and fundamental republican principle and build a marxist command economy on its ashes.

But the truth is getting out...a little more each day. Here a little, there a little...and sometimes a lot. And the American people are waking up to it.

I watched this, and became angry just taking in the ARROGANCE around that table.

Who was the IDIOT saying “Tell your kids to watch everything they do...it leaves a digital footprint...”

Yeah. That is good advice. But it was the context in which we hear this advice that just burns my ass.

He is making it out like this Van Jones guy is just a fine public servant who left too many digital footprints, and was crucified by a mob for partisan political purposes.

The real reason is that he is a marxist, racist, socialist and downright loon job who thought the government was behind 9/11 and “White” industry was deliberately targeting minority neighborhoods with toxic waste.

He didn’t say this as an 18 year old kid who was operating under the stupidity of youth as all of us did at one time.

He said these as a fully formed and developed political animal.

The REAL problem is that for every one of these Farrakhan-like racist, Marxist and socialist types who rise to the top of the water for us to see, there are dozens and dozens that we don’t see.

And until people accept the fact that Obama is EXACTLY THE SAME PHILOSOPHICALLY as people like Van Jones, Farrakhan, Wright and Ayers, we won’t be able to convince people that we need to remove him from office.

As for dumb asses like Brokaw, he and many of his ilk are just pissed off because they cannot dictate to people how they should form their opinions any more.

To them, independent thinking takes power away from them. And they are right. It does.
