Responding to sexual misconduct charges, NBC'sTom Brokaw complains of being "ambushed and then perp walked across the pages of The Washington Post and Variety as an avatar of male misogyny, taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half century of journalism and citizenship". Once inside the room, Vester saidBrokaw beckoned her to the sofa and touched her without her consent.
"It is 4 a.m. on the first day of my new life as an accused predator in the universe of American journalism".
Former war reporter Linda Vester accused veteran NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw of sexual misconduct in incidents taking place when the two worked together in the early 1990s.
In a statement to The Post, Vester's lawyer said that "my client stands by the allegations which speak for themselves". He is now a special correspondent for NBC News.
The report also detailed the claims of an anonymous woman who told the Post that Brokaw acted inappropriately toward her during her time as a production assistant in the 1990s.
"She has unleashed a torrent of unsubstantiated criticism and attacks on me more than twenty years after I opened the door for her and a new job at Fox News", Brokaw said in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by CNNMoney.
The Post reported Thursday that NBC planned a "culture assessment", but "did not hire an outside firm to conduct the investigation".

Brokaw wrote that his accuser, Linda Vester, failed in her pursuit of stardom and was given the run of the Post and Variety to vent her grievances. That move she so vividly describes is NOT WHO I AM. Brokaw sent a disparaging email to his peers at NBC.
Vester said that "no one did a thing", and "there was nothing I could really do or say because I was so low on the totem pole". "Not in high school, college or thereafter".
Vester left Fox in the mid-2000s to look after her children full-time.
Some of her relatives by marriage are very close friends. He also added that an internal review launched by NBC Universal in the wake of Matt Lauer's firing was nearing its conclusion and that he could share findings with employees "as soon as next week".
