Tom Brokaw pens vicious attack on accuser

Tom Brokaw

In keeping with The Washington Put up, Brokaw, now 78, allegedly made undesirable strikes on Linda Vester, a former NBC correspondent and former Fox Information anchor, twice through the 1990s, together with an alleged transfer to forcibly kiss Vester, who was in her 20s on the time. "I don't want to do that with you.'" The Post corroborated Vester's statements with her diary from the time, as well as with a fellow former NBC coworker of Vester's who she confided in that night.

Lack acknowledged the accusations against Brokaw, which were published on Thursday afternoon, as well as new claims lodged against Lauer.

Vester, who was a war correspondent for NBC News during the 90's, came forward with her story in a video interview with Variety.

She told Variety that despite not being at fault, she "suffered years of humiliation and isolation" from the incidents.

He says that he did go to her room but should not have and did not verbally or physically attack her in any way. "I have issues from those two meetings 20 years ago?"

Brokaw addressed the NY hotel incident, saying that Vester "often sought me out for informal meetings, including the one she describes in her NY hotel room".

Ms. Vester's attorney, Ari Wilkenfeld, said, "My client stands by the allegations, which speak for themselves".

"I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women", she said.




NBC had no comment on Brokaw's letter.

Signers of a letter in support of Brokaw include some of the network's biggest names, including Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, Mika Brzezinski and Maria Shriver, according to reports.

The Washington Post also revealed new allegations against former NBC "Today" show host Matt Lauer. He also added that an internal review launched by NBC Universal in the wake of Matt Lauer's firing was nearing its conclusion and that he could share findings with employees "as soon as next week".

"Once again, our highest priority is to ensure we have a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected".

The letter supporting Mr. Brokaw was organized by a former producer, Elizabeth Bowyer, and signed by more than 60 of Mr. Brokaw's former and current female colleagues.

"NBC is a sophisticated company", Drobac said, "and yet its response is a bit backward".

NBC has said it will make the results of Harris' investigation public.
