NBC legend Tom Brokaw accused of sexual harassment

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Following the revelations of past sexual misconduct against anchor Matt Lauer and reporter Mark Halperin, NBC News has been in some trouble with the #MeToo movement.

That trouble just grew exponentially as one of the network’s biggest stars of all time, long-time news anchor Tom Brokaw, was just accused of his own sexual misconduct by a former co-worker, according to Variety.

That would be former NBC correspondent turned Fox News host Linda Vester, who has alleged in multiple interviews with Variety that Brokaw twice attempted to kiss her against her will.

She also alleged that he had once grabbed her inappropriately in a conference room and had showed up uninvited at her hotel room to attempt to coerce her into a sexual affair.

One another occasion, he had showed up at a restaurant where she was with friends and invited himself back to her apartment.

There were also countless messages Brokaw sent to her of a flirtatious nature that she tried to ignore but occasionally felt compelled to reply to.

Those allegations were corroborated by two friends who were informed of what had happened at the time, as well as Vester’s own contemporaneous journal entries documenting the incidents.

For his part, Brokaw denied ever making any sort of “romantic overtures” toward Vester, according to a statement from NBC.

Furthermore, it was noted that no similar allegations of sexual misconduct have ever been lodged against Brokaw in the past.

But Vester revealed that she had refrained from complaining about Brokaw’s actions at the time due to fear that her career would be ruined.

She is also hopeful that her coming forward now will help change the culture at NBC that prevents other women from coming forward with similar allegations against popular and protected stars.

Hopefully, Vester’s bravery in coming forward will indeed spur more women to come forward to expose the mistreatment they have received at the hands of hypocritical liberal media figures who like to chastise others for the sins they themselves have committed.
