Another Woman Comes Out Against NBC Legend

Another Woman Comes Out Against NBC Legend

A third woman has accused legendary NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw of unwanted sexual advances, long before the newsman had become a household name.

Mary Reinholz wrote a first-person account of her experience with Brokaw in The Villager, a weekly newspaper serving several New York City neighborhoods, alleging the news legend forcibly kissed her during a visit to her home in Laurel Canyon in 1968. She said the two were both journalists in California at the time, and that he had just helped her on a story when the encounter happened.

“We talked and then, abruptly, he was embracing me and giving me a French kiss. I pulled away, reminding him that he was married and a tryst was out of the question. He said, ‘Yes, it would be unfair to Meredith,’ meaning his wife,” she wrote.

Reinholz’s claim comes after a bombshell set of reports revealed Thursday that two women accused 78-year-old Brokaw of similar behavior in the 1990s.
