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.

I see she lost a 500K contract too Red Cloud. That's ok, I'm sure she'll raise her rates with her Turban clients to make up the difference. Typical you to bash Brokaw. Seems everyone in the news biz thinks she's trash. You know long time family friend Barbara Walters as well as Matt Lauer does as well.

Lohan didn't even want to attend this event right off the bat. The D.C. weekend was going to cut into her getting blitzed time. It's amazing she made it, and really she was in better shape a year ago if that is possible. She missed her flight b/c she was "working" and had the red eye (her usual departure) out to D.C.

1. Brokaw didn't say that Lohan ruined the event but rather that her invitation was indicative of what he perceives to be the ruination of the dinner.

2. When, yes when, Lindsay violates I assume that a bench warrant would be issued. The real question is extradition. More than likely California would not send some officers to another state to pick up John Doe for a misdemeanor violation. I had an issue in a DV case as to whether Long Beach PD would go to Bakersfield to get an asshat and this guy had dui and spousal battery warrants.

However, the person in question is Lindsay Lohan not John Doe and that changes the equation and they might go get her. My uneducated guess would be that she'd come here voluntarily--after some sort of negotiation. And a dirty drug test IS a violation. Is that what you were looking for Nicole?

He's right and the same goes for the Kartrashians, also brought by Faux tv. Talk about a table of cheap tricks!
On another note, did anyone see the ROL article on Blohan getting dumped from an endorsement deal for some never heard of company called Odaingerous? LMAO Well, that explains that ugly jacket she wore for her late arrival to Baldwin's play, Maybe the company wasn't impressed with Blo's last "modeling" of clothes, hammered and on a dirty floor under a table.

Brokaw did not say anything about Lindsay, he just mentioned that her attendance cheapened the event. That is common sense. Shawn Holley is the one that came off as a class act. Lindsay=JWOWW
