Brokaw opens up about `1968'

Veteran journalist delves into the tumultuous year in new special

December 08, 2007|By Verne Gay | Verne Gay,Newsday

Like any good journalist, which he indisputably is, Tom Brokaw has a tough time with the word "I."

Using "I" means talking about yourself, and saying what you think and feel and believe. It's a great word for a talk-show host. It's a terrible word for a veteran TV journalist who's spent the past 40 years keeping onlookers out of the sanctum sanctorum inside his head.

On TV 1968 With Tom Brokaw airs at 9 p.m. Sunday on the History Channel.
