NBC News Says It's Taking Tom Brokaw Harassment Claim Seriously

Adjust Comment Print

Linda Vester told Variety and the Washington Post that the misbehavior from the longtime news anchor at the network took place in NBC offices in Denver and NY in the 1990s, when she was in her 20s.

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. Mr. Brokaw told the Post that no such incident happened.

Both Variety and The Washington Post interviewed Vester for stories that were published on Thursday.

"I was groped and assaulted by Tom Brokaw, then the anchor of 'NBC Nightly News, '" Vester said in a video interview with Variety.

That, of course, flies in the face of the two very vocal former coworkers of Brokaw who have accused him of maxing unwanted sexual advances at different points during the 1990s.

Rachel Maddow and Andrea Mitchell were among the current and former colleagues of Tom Brokaw that signed a letter defending him against recent allegations of sexual harassment.

"I should not have gone but I emphatically did not verbally and physically attack her and suggest an affair in language right out of pulp fiction", he wrote. He wonders why Vester did not pick up the phone to talk to him about her accusations from over two decades ago. As that discussion advanced she often reminded me she was a Catholic and that she was uncomfortable with my presence. She told the Post Brokaw put her hands against his chest, pulled her closer and then invited her to later come to his office.

Brokaw wrote that his accuser, Linda Vester, failed in her pursuit of stardom and was given the run of the Post and Variety to vent her grievances. That move she so vividly describes is NOT WHO I AM. "But as I write this at dawn on the morning after a drive-by shooting by Vester, the Washington Post and Variety I am stunned by the free ride given a woman with a grudge against NBC News, no distinctive credentials or issue passions while at Fox", Brokaw wrote. "Instead she became a character assassin".
