Tom Brokaw Discusses Olbermann Exit


“Where it got sticky is when our commentators were anchoring political coverage. Those are, in some ways, incompatible roles. We worked our way through that,” long-time NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw told the Chicago Tribune, in his first comments about the departure from MSNBC of hyper-partisan Keith Olbermann.

Asked if MSNBC is better off or worse without the controversial commentator-anchor, Brokaw replied “You’re not going to get me to go there.”

Not actually answering questions is, I guess, why they call Brokaw “NBC’s senior statesman.”
