Tom Brokaw Blasts Lindsay

YOU RUINED

White House Correspondents' Dinner

4/26/2013 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Lindsay Lohan
DESTROYED any shred of dignity the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner had left ... and now it's nothing more than a joke ... this according to Tom Brokaw.

The legendary newsman blasted the dinner during an interview with Politico -- saying the standards for the once-respected event have fallen so low, his daughter's junior prom has more dignity.

FYI -- Lohan was a guest of Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren at last year's event ... where booze flows freely and Beltway nerds routinely bring show-offy stars as plus-ones.

Brokaw says he's so pissed at the downfall of the event, he won't ever attend again.

However, there was one wild and crazy celebrity appearance that he actually enjoyed -- wait'll ya hear who it is.

That may be because the press members of today take themselves wayyyyy to seriously. I agree Lilo has her problems, but you can't blame lack of respect for the press on her. That was years in coming. & their own doing. If you go out of your way to praise one person in politics (or one "side" of politics) & slam the other, you get no respect from viewers. In fact most of these "news" shows have lost alot of viewers over the years & that started before the connection with Lilo. So.....Wat'zat tell ya?

Putting "dignity" and journalists/correspondents/reporters in the same sentence is CRAZY!!! Greta was trying to help rehabilitate Lohan - give her another chance (that she didn't deserve). The media is nothing but self-serving, mostly leftist b@stards. Boo-hoo Brokaw!

I get it when a celebrity like George Clooney is invited to the White House because that guy actually spends a lot of his time & money trying to fix a lot of things he sees wrong in the world. He puts his money where his mouth is, basically.

Why Lindsay Lohan is ever invited to an event like this is beyond me. The girl is the definition of shallow.

Love Tom Brokaw since the early eighties. Completely agree. Greta Van Susteren is a Scientologist C***T who is anti-obama. and brought Lindsay Lohan only to embarrass the current government. Lindsay, however was too stupid to realize that she was invited as a joke, to be the Joke. Lindsay might be bad, but greta's a cu*** nt

First of all, LiLo ruined more than the WH Correspondent Din-Din -- that hoe ruined her life! And second, it's not like the WH Correspondent Din-Din is this high-class ish.
