  • Tom Brokaw Declares “We’re At War” After Donald Trump Tweets Another ‘Fox & Friends’ Love Letter

    Donald Trump this morning tweeted another love letter to Fox News Channel’s morning show Fox and Friends, faux-asking “Was @foxandfriends just named the most influential show in news?” On Wednesday, web site Mediaite had named the FNC morning show the Most Influential In News Media for 2017, topping a list that also included, in reverse order, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Matt Drudge, FNC star Sean Hannity, and CNN chief Jeff Zucker. Mistaking Mediaite’s “most influential” for “best,” Trump crowed that the Trump News Network morning show hosts “deserve it” and that “the many Fake News Hate Shows should study your formula...

  • Brokaw Slams Brazile for ‘Beyond Counter-Productive’ Clinton Exposure

    The portion of former interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile’s book exposing ethically questionable behavior by the Clinton campaign surprisingly got a lot of play on the network Sunday morning shows. But during NBC’s Meet the Press, former anchor Tom Brokaw was not pleased with Brazile for shedding light on how the Clinton campaign bought the DNC and added it to their campaign arsenal. And towards the end of the program, he criticized her for doing so. As the program was coming back from a commercial, Todd looked to veteran reporter Eugene Robinson and jokingly wondered, “What did the...

    In an interview with Arizona Senator John McCain for Thursday’s NBC Today, Senior Correspondent Tom Brokaw invited the Republican lawmaker to attack President Trump and painted the liberal media as the victim: “In the course of your political career, especially as a presidential candidate – as I learned first hand – you had some mixed relations with the press. The President has no use for the press, he has turned the country against us, in many ways.”McCain was quick to agree with Brokaw’s whining: “Yeah, I think the role of the press is more important than ever before. I hate...
  • I’m a pro-gun hunter. Vegas proves gun rights need limits.

    It is time for civility to reign — and madness to be snuffed out. That is why I am for conditional access to military grade firearms. More complete background checks, for example, including medical records. Limits on stockpiling ammunition. Mandatory courses in safe usage. And more broadly, we need to have a dialogue about the place of guns in our society. I am not for banning guns. I do support the right to bear arms. But when a right becomes an acute threat to the general welfare it is time for re-evaluation.

    FULL TITLE - Brokaw: Gun Conversations Become ‘Emotional’ Between Gun Owners and People Saying There’s ‘Reasonable Middle Ground’ On Monday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” Tom Brokaw argued that it’s impossible to have a conversation on what kind of firearms can be purchased because it becomes emotionally-charged between gun owners “who are protected by the NRA, and other people who are saying, ‘There ought to be a more reasonable middle ground.'” Brokaw stated there should be a national conversation on the amount of mass shootings in the US. He added, “You listen to those weapons, they’re on full auto at that...

    Endorsement, appointment included in billionaire's connections Ebay founder Pierre Omidyar's politics have become the subject of blog commentary because the web auction site over the last week repeatedly scrubbed an offering of an allegedly genuine copy of President Barack Obama's birth certificate – from Mombasa, Kenya. But the company said it wouldn't get involved in any discussion of Omidyar's activities or political statements. Spokeswoman Evonne Gomez said, "We certainly wouldn't comment on our founder's political concessions or beliefs. He is not involved in the day-to-day operations of the company." She said if a question was submitted in writing, she would...

    Veteran reporter Tom Brokaw said in an interview with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC that he has not seen anybody who thinks former FBI Director James Comey was doing a good job. Brokaw, who covered the Watergate scandal in the 1970s, suggested that much of the media response to Comey's Tuesday firing and Russia's possible connection to President Donald Trump's campaign team was "speculation." "One of the things that I learned during Watergate … is that we dealt with it every day on a factual basis. There was not a lot of speculation. Now, of course, the media landscape has changed...

Another judge has stepped in.” He then urged the foreign leader to lecture the President

    A tribute by Tom Brokaw and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to Colonel Gail Halverson, "The Candy Bomber". Colonel Halverson acquired the name for his efforts during the Berlin airlift to provide the German children with candy. He called this candy parachute supply effort "Operation Little Vittles" and it was greatly appreciated by the children. To learn more about Colonel Halverson watch The Candy Bomber Interview. For some reason I cannot repost the url for this site. Just go to the link to watch the whole thing. You won't be sorry.

    Former NBC newsman Tom Brokaw is apparently not a big fan of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. According to a Mediaite report, the legendary NBC newsman was at the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C., on Saturday to discuss his book, "A Lucky Life Interrupted," when he told the crowd that the idea of covering Trump was not exactly his cup of tea. "If I was at ‪NBC News right now leading with‪ Donald Trump every night, I'd call in sick," said Brokaw.

    You know you’re in trouble when Tom Brokaw is out for your blood. NBC’s most revered journalist is furious that Brian Williams is still in the anchor chair after he sheepishly admitted he hadn’t traveled on a helicopter hit by enemy fire. “Brokaw wants Williams’ head on a platter,” an NBC source said. “He is making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report.” On Wednesday, Williams, 55, acknowledged that he had repeatedly said he was aboard a chopper that had been hit by a...

    Town Hall ^ | June 3, 2013 | Guy Benson
    Brokaw believes Team Obama may be executing a Beltway "two-step," where named administration officials stand by their man on the record, while deputies telegraph the White House's true sentiments on background. In this case, the Times reports that West Wing insiders are trying to nudge Holder toward the door, his central crime being political maladriotness. Their "apoplexy" over the Attorney General isn't on the merits of his terrible decisions and obvious dishonesty, mind you. They're cool with his behavior -- from pressing for Bush-era recriminations, to backing New York City trials for Al Qaeda leaders, to presiding over and misleading...
  • Brokaw Rips White House Correspondents Dinner:We're Versailles [ 2nd Star party since closure ]

    For those of you who might not know or care, the White House Correspondents Dinner is an annual orgy of narcissistic self-indulgence where the biggest stars in media, Hollywood, and politics gather to become even more corrupt and insulated than they already are. It is also a decidedly left-wing affair where the media hoot, holler, and applaud as Barack Obama attacks his political opponents, and do the same when Stephen Colbert rips George W. Bush. In a word, the dinner is a grotesque display of "journalists" yukking it up and slapping the backs of those in power whom they are...

    “This is a reality show that we’re going to be living with for a long time,” Tom Brokaw said on Meet the Press this morning, during David Gregory‘s panel on the attack in Boston. Discussing the need to find the motivation behind such events, the panelists further debated the pros and cons of the extra-vigilant era we’re entering. “You can’t get intel on the lone operators,” Brokaw elaborated, noting details about the suspect, adding, “He’s also a Muslim. The fact is, that Islamic rage is still out there.” He then turned toward the security aspect, mentioning the

    Former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw strongly suggested Sunday that America is partly to blame for the gruesome terrorists attacks in Boston, because the young, Muslim men involved may have felt “alienated” and angry over U.S. drone strikes on “innocent civilians” in Muslim countries abroad. Brokaw, who has been playing the role of media elder statesman since retiring, went on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with host David Gregory to discuss last week’s Boston bombings, which killed three and injured 183. “There are a couple of things to remember here, David, I think for all of us,” Brokaw intoned. “With the...
