In today's "How Fitting" segment, former NBC Nightly News Tom anchor appeared on Chinese Communist television Saturday evening.
As reported by The Weekly Standard:
Former network television host Tom Brokaw will be appearing on the Chinese Communist channel later tonight, according to a press release from China Central Television. The Communist channel bears the ironic acronym CCTV, which in other contexts usually stands for “closed-circuit television.”
“CCTV America’s talk and debate public affairs show The Heat announces Mike Walter will talk with iconic journalist, television news anchor and author Tom Brokaw,” the press release reads. “Mr. Brokaw shares his insights on the major changes in China over the past four decades, the challenges that lie ahead for the country and how the United States should deal with China’s role as an emerging global power.”
TWS reported in January, "Apparently, the Chinese believe that their country doesn’t get favorable coverage in the world’s press because the world’s press is, of course, largely non-Chinese.
As such, Brokaw on Saturday participated in some Communist propaganda.
Must have seemed like old times.
