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.

WE need more news people like Tom, Chris, Matthews, and Piers Morgan. They make the media believable, and they are great rich people who love America.
The news people like Greta, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Glenn Beck have ruined this country with there views, and beliefs.

Tom tells Politico that the White House Correspondents' Dinner used to be fun and interesting and over the years it has turned into a steaming trash pile of drunken messiness and fame whores. Tom doesn't show his face there anymore, but he watches on CSPAN and says that the dinner really jumped ten sharks in a row when Lindsay Lohan was invited by Greta Van Susteren.

"There was more dignity at my daughter's junior prom than there is what I'm seeing on CSPAN here. Then we got to the point where everybody had to bring in whatever Page 6 celebrity happened to be around. For me the breaking point was Lindsay Lohan. She became the big star at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Give me a break."

Tom Brokaw is probably going to get a call really early in the morning and it'll be from a drunken, grunting mess who sounds like her throat is lined in sand paper and she'll slur out a tossed salad of incoherent sentences. It'll just be White Oprah calling to threaten him with a lawsuit for ruining the pristine image of her daughter. Tom should just hang up and go back to bed, because White Oprah will forget she called him when she wakes up in the afternoon with her head hanging over the toilet. -Dlisted

I do not need to think for myself because I let people like Tom and the MSM think for me. Lindsay is a piece of trash, and people love, respect, and worship there newsmen like Tom. Tom is like a GOD because he reads a script in front of a camera for television. Lindsay is a coke whore that is going to rehab. We need our news, we need Tom!!!

The other news guy that is close to Tom in Godliness is Bill O'Reiley. That guy knows what he is talking about, and if you do not agree with him then you are probably a pinhead.

I also really respect newsmen like Wolf Blitzer for never sleeping, and reporting 24/7. If we did not have guys like that changing the details of the Boston Bombing story every day what would we do?

Geraldo Rivera is also a great newsman, if not the greatest of all time.
