Tom Brokaw Is As Modest As He Is Impartial

October 1st, 2008at 07:54pm Posted by Eli

Now that the right wing is all frothed up about how Gwen Ifill can’t be a neutral moderator for the VP debate because she’s written a book about “emerging young African-American politicians,” Media Matters was kind enough to point out Tom Brokaw and Bob Schieffer’s pro-Republican conflicts of interest, which were somehow never a problem.

Here’s the best part:

Mr. Brokaw said he had been told by a senior McCain aide, whom he did not name, that the campaign had been reluctant to accept an NBC representative as one of the moderators of the three presidential debates — until his name was invoked.

“One of the things I was told by this person was that they were so irritated, they said, ‘If it’s an NBC moderator, for any of these debates, we won’t go,’ ” Mr. Brokaw said. “My name came up, and they said, ‘Oh, hell, we have to do it, because it’s going to be Brokaw.’ “

Everybody loves Brokaw!  I guess it’s because he’s so humble and self-effacing.
