Tom Brokaw Receives Support From Women In Television Industry

Tom Brokaw has been accused by Linda Vester of sexual harassment.

Brokaw has pushed back against the sexual misconduct allegations. The letter was first reported in the Hollywood Reporter and confirmed by The Associated Press.

Vester, who worked as a war correspondent for NBC News, told the publications that that Brokaw groped her and tried to forcibly kiss her in the 1990s. And the third was from Tom Brokaw. He said no incident with the production assistant ever occurred, and he denied making "romantic overtures" toward Vester.

"I received three calls that night". The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my own troubling flaws.

"I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women", Curry said. Brokaw wrote that Vester sought him out for the meeting in the NY hotel room, a characterization she rejects.

What was in the email?

"[I was] taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half century of journalism and citizenship", Brokaw explained, noting that the allegations made him feel "angry, hurt, and unmoored from what I thought would be the final passage of my life and career".

Vester was a correspondent and anchor at NBC until 1999, when she moved to Fox News.

And on the ad feminam attack front, Brokaw wrote prolifically.

Brokaw's email noted that his recollection of any encounters with Vester were entirely different from the pictures she painted in the Post and in Variety. Vester told the Post and Variety that Brokaw, in both London and NY, grabbed the back of her neck and pulled her in forcefully in an attempt to kiss her.

As I remember, she was at one end of a sofa, I was at the other. "I have issues from those two meetings 20 years ago?"

He concluded that he is proud of who he is - as a husband, a father, a grandfather, a journalist, and a citizen.

Ms. Vester told the Washington Post and Variety that she was compelled to come forward all these years later because NBC hasn't hired outside counsel to investigate sexual misconduct in the news division-which in her view meant it wasn't taking it seriously enough.

One woman told the Post that Lauer exposed himself in his office and asked her to touch him, a second said he had sex with her in the middle of the day in his office, and third said Lauer gave her a sex toy.
