Every which way but classy: Tom Brokaw bashes ‘friend’ Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood became huge star as a man of few words As a surprise guest on the Tampa stage he had too many words (I say as a friend)

NBC’s Tom Brokaw has only tweeted 26 times since joining Twitter last year. But after watching Clint Eastwood mockingly dress down an invisible Obama at the GOP convention, the always objective Brokaw dedicated his 26th tweet to telling his “friend” to shut his trap.
@tombrokaw Odd. That doesn't sound very friendly at all.

@tombrokaw Doesn't sound like something "a friend" would say. Having a hard time are "we" with Clint mocking Obama.

Many Twitterers thought using fewer words was great advice … for Brokaw.
@tombrokaw watched your own tapes lately Tommy?

@tombrokaw Coming from a comic icon like yourself… Many think your TWEET contains too many words. He was ad-libbing & funny & endearing.

@tombrokaw You are so full-of-it Brokaw. The way you've been shilling for the GOP & knee-capping Obama, many have lost respect for you too!

@tombrokaw It wasn't about Clint Eastwood as much as it was about your fading agenda. Eastwood interfered with that. You didn't like that.

@tombrokaw Gotta disagree with you there Tom. Every bit of it was funny and damaging, hence the critical reactions of libs like yourself.

@tombrokaw why demean someone who has an opinion that is not yours, I used to think the liberal media was a lie, my eyes are open now.
