NBC News Says It's Taking Tom Brokaw Harassment Claim Seriously

Tom Brokaw

In an email, Brokaw fired back at the alleged sexual harassment accusations with harsh words. "In the context of that conversation, we would like to share our perspectives on working with Tom Brokaw", the letter began, according to Deadline.

The reports also suggest that legendary newsman Tom Brokaw benefited from this culture, revealing for the first time allegations from two women who say the longtime "NBC Nightly News" anchor sexually harassed them in the 1990s. Hard to believe it wasn't much more Look At Me than Me:Too.I am proud of who I am as a husband, father, grandfather, journalist and citizen.

Tom Brokaw vigorously denied an allegation of sexual harassment made by former NBC reporter Linda Vester, calling her an "angry" ex-colleague with a grudge against NBC News who is out to destroy his family and career.

Ms. Vester, in a video interview on Variety's website, said Mr. Brokaw "grabbed me behind my neck and tried to force me to kiss him". In it, he said, "I was ambushed and then perp walked across the pages of The Washington Post and Variety ... taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half century of journalism and citizenship".

"This is one of the problems when we talk about corporations with an HR department being under leadership of someone who might or might not be accused", she told the Post.

He says that he did go to her room but should not have and did not verbally or physically attack her in any way. Brokaw sent a disparaging email to his peers at NBC.

Ford to discontinue all except two cars from the United States market
Lincoln now sells the mid-size MKZ and full-size Continental, and they share the same sedan platforms as their Ford counterparts. First quarter adjusted earnings rose to 43 cents a share, topping analysts' average estimate of 41 cents.

NBC News said late past year that it was launching a probe into Mr. Lauer's behavior during his long tenure at the network.

The news of Brokaw's alleged indecent behavior comes less than a year after NBC News employee Matt Lauer was sacked for inappropriate sexual behavior. She also said she was not surprised about the allegations against Lauer.

Vester's attorney on Friday reiterated this point in a statement written in response to Brokaw's letter, saying her client "observed that the company's response does not appear to be aimed at producing a safer and more equitable workplace for women".

Vester was a correspondent and anchor at NBC until 1999, when she moved to Fox News. And I felt trapped because he was undeterred by anything I had said before. "Not in high school, college or thereafter". She told the Post Brokaw put her hands against his chest, pulled her closer and then invited her to later come to his office.

Lack said the post-Lauer review is "nearing its conclusion", and said that "findings and further steps" will be shared with staff as soon as next week.
