Brokaw To Broker “Meet The Press”

Tom Brokaw, NBC News stalwart and probably the last remaining real “newsman” from a generation that has struggled to maintain a distinctive presence in the midst of cable news mayhem, will be moderating “Meet The Press” through the General Elections this year.

I respect Tom, although I find his editorial positions and influence in some of the news programming that he produces to be sharply left (and off the cliff sometimes), but I think that he has the knowledge, relationship savvy and ability to listen to those he disagrees with that will help maintain the integrity of the program.

I think everyone would agree that Tom is not Tim, and should not be critiqued as such.  However, I expect a level of thoroughness in presenting all sides that I’ve grown accustomed to with Tim, and hope that Brokaw maintains that tradition.
