Tom Brokaw on Comcast/NBC Deal: "Would be a good thing"

Tom Brokaw, in one of his first comments on the just announced Comcast/NBC merger, says the prospective merger would be "a good thing."

His comment comes in at 2 minutes into this interview with Liz Glover of washingtontimes.com.  She spoke with the NBC News special correspondent earlier today.

Andy Plesser, Senior Producer

Video Transcript [starting at 1:40 min into video]

Liz Glover: 
Last question sir. What do you think about the prospective merger of NBC with Comcast?

Tom Brokaw:
  Well I...you know, let's wait and see what happens before I comment on it. But I know the people at Comcast. I think they're really responsible and serious. They've got an enormous amount of integrity.

I think Brian Roberts, his father, and Steve Burke have built a really impressive company, so if we end up together, I wouldn't have any fears about that. In fact, it would be a good thing. I've loved being a part of GE, but GE is making a corporate decision and we'll see how it plays out.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
