Tom Brokaw anchored NBC’s “Nightly News” for 22 years. He was, while on the air, a mostly fair and balanced journalist (but since his retirement he’s shown a decidedly liberal bent).

Still, in his heyday, Brokaw appeared to seek out both sides of the story. He was a fan of Ronald Reagan and delivered one of the eulogies at the funeral of former First Lady Nancy Reagan.

The article goes on to state the following:

But he doesn’t think today’s media is doing the job at all nowadays – and that it might even be “destructive.”

Speaking to Artful Living, Brokaw said: “I think the most extraordinarily powerful tool and the most destructive development in modern life is the current media.”

“Everybody has a voice – and I think it’s great for people to have a voice – but there’s no way to verify what’s true and what’s not. It has no context; it’s just a 24/7 rage about what’s pissing people off across the board from the Left to the Right,” he continued. “It could be a unifying factor, but it’s a dividing factor, frankly. And that really troubles me as much as anything. I don’t know how we get beyond that. I don’t know what leader can come along and say, ‘Look, we’re all in this together. We’ve got to find a way to work together.’”
