The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“I know of no more pa­tri­otic group than tele­vi­sion jour­nal­ists,” then-NBC an­chor­man Tom Brokaw stated in a na­tional news­pa­per print ad for NBC, on March 30, 1985. A ri­val net­work also reached out that year.

Us­ing black-and-white stills of in­di­vid­u­als, the voiceover on the spot said: ‘Amer­i­cans, we know who we are. And when it comes to news, we know who we trust. Dan Rather, CBS News’,” noted an anal­y­sis in “The Demo­cratic Fa­cade,” a 1991 book by Daniel Hellinger and Den­nis R. Judd.
