Brokaw on Imus: ”Let’s Hear What He Has To Say”


Tom Brokaw appeared on Howard Kurtz’s Reliable Sources this weekend to promote his new book. The subjects covered were the 2008 Presidential election, the state of broadcast news, Vietnam and the cultural wars of the 1960s. Brokaw also touches on Don Imus in the book, and Kurtz asked him about it:

KURTZ: Do you think that Imus can make a successful comeback and would you go back on the show?

BROKAW: You know, what I have said is that let’s hear what he has to say. I think we owe him that. I believe in redemption. I think Don is a very smart guy. I know that that meeting that he had with the students from Rutgers, with the basketball players was one of the most important moments in his life, a deeply emotional and moving time I think for both parties. So let’s hear what he has to say.”
