Lib journalists add Tom Brokaw exception to Hillary Clinton’s ‘all women should be heard and believed’ directive

So many in the liberal media looked on in fawning adoration during Hillary Clinton’s campaign as she said things like this about sexual assault and harassment:

There are exceptions to that rule though, such as when the person involved is a liberal colleague who maybe helped advance their careers in some way:

Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, Maria Shriver and Kelly O’Donnell and more than 60 other women have voiced their support for Tom Brokaw in the wake of sexual harassment allegations leveled against the NBC News veteran.

The letter signed by current and former NBC News staffers praises Brokaw “as a man of tremendous decency and integrity” and as one who “treated each of us with fairness and respect.” It comes on the heels of reports in the Washington Post and Variety that Brokaw made unwanted sexual advances to former NBC News anchor Linda Vester in the mid-1990s.

Brokaw,” the letter reads, “has given each of us opportunities for advancement and championed our successes throughout our careers. As we have advanced across industries — news, publishing, law, business and government — Tom has been a valued source of counsel and support. We know him to be a man of tremendous decency and integrity.”

And just like that Tom Brokaw is awarded the coveted Bill Clinton exception to the liberal rule on harassment & assault allegations.

Brokaw is now likely to face any number of potentially embarrassing flashbacks.
