Legendary NBC Newser Tom Brokaw doesn’t tweet very often. But when he does, the news media takes notice.
Brokaw criticized comments Pres. Trump made about journalists at his Phoenix rally earlier this week.
“It’s time to expose the crooked media deceptions, and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions,” Trump proclaimed. “And yes, by the way… and yes, by the way, they are trying to take away our history and our heritage. You see that.”
Brokaw’s criticism of Trump’s sentiments was succinct, yet forceful.
i’ve been a journalist 50 yrs. Never met one who didn’t love USA.
Many risk their lives reporting on US values.
