True Tom Brokaw Feud With Brian WilliamsTom Brokaw is slamming rumors of a feud between him and Brian Williams. The former NBC Nightly News anchor denied any bad blood with his successor on the show during an interview with Sean Hannity on Monday. The 75-year-old opened about the importance of giving Williams a fair investigation after claims that the anchor was dishonest about some of his reporting. Referring to reports he read about a feud between him and Williams, Brokaw says, "I read things attributed to me or what my state of mind is – completely wrong, almost all of them. I hope that this can get worked out to the advantage of everybody, but we've got to let the process play out." "[Williams] is now at a point where he's, I gather, trying to decide how it is that he's going to respond. And my answer to all of these questions is always the same. We have a process underway in fairness to Brian – and by the way, we've always had cordial relationships. In fairness to him and his family, we need to let the process play out. And there's been way too much speculation." Hannity then asked Brokaw if anyone has it out for Williams. Brokaw responded, "Yes, I don't know. It would be hard for me to assign motivation," he said. "I just think what happens with the profusion of social media is that if you get any kind of a name, and it has nothing to do with philosophy or personality, if it's a name that everyone recognizes, they're going to punch it out there because they think it'll bring in viewers."
