The #Metoo guillotines are out again.

Responding to sexual misconduct charges, NBC’s Tom 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.”

The former NBC “Nightly News” anchor reacted angrily in an email written at 4 a.m. and sent to friends to charges that he made unwanted sexual advances on a former colleague two decades ago. The letter was first reported in the Hollywood Reporter and confirmed by The Associated Press.

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.
