https://thehill.com/homenews/media/427197-nbcs-brokaw-apologizes-for-saying-hispanics-should-work-harder-at-assimilation

After a long and accomplished career, Tom Brokaw either seems to be struggling for a new self-identity, or has morphed into an enfeebled, cantankerous uncle who can't keep himself from blurting out his absurd opinions.
