Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, Maria Shriver and Kelly ODonnell and more than
60 other women have voiced their support for Tom Brokaw in the wake of sexual
harassment allegations leveled against the NBC News veteran.
The letter signed by current and former NBC News staffers praises Brokaw as a
man of tremendous decency and integrity and as one who treated each of us with
fairness and respect. It comes on the heels of reports in the Washington Post
and Variety that Brokaw made unwanted sexual advances to former NBC News anchor
Linda Vester in the mid-1990s.
Brokaw, the letter reads, has given each of us opportunities for advancement
and championed our successes throughout our careers. As we have advanced across
industries news, publishing, law, business and government Tom has been a
valued source of counsel and support. We know him to be a man of tremendous
decency and integrity.
