MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell was sharing her latest theory on President Trump like it was news and asked for Tom Brokaw’s opinion. He completely shut her down and taught her what a journalist is supposed to do. She was comparing President Trump firing James Comey to Nixon’s scandal.
“One of the things that I learned during Watergate … is that we dealt with it every day on a factual basis. There was not a lot of speculation. Now, of course, the media landscape has changed a lot, and we have that going on 24/7,” said Brokaw. Wow!
“I do think, however, that all of us as reporters, have to take a deep breath and say let’s deal with the facts as we know them at this point,” said Brokaw.
“Having said that, there are a lot of elements here that desperately need more explanation, more investigation. I haven’t run into anybody yet who thinks that Jim Comey was doing a good job as the FBI director, beginning last summer,” said Brokaw.
