The peacock was my choice for network news growing up!
15 June 2007 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Growing up as a kid when watching the news my family always for some reason had the choice of the peacock. Yes "NBC Nightly News" it was and I feel maybe one of the reasons was anchor Tom Brokaw, he was so professional and his voice just caught your attention. And Tom just had the look of your average newsman. The reporting and stories were always good both domestic and international no matter what was covered if it was politics, war, social issues the stories and interviews, and reports were entertaining and educational. I remember John Chancellor as a educated political voice that gave his thoughts and opinions and Brian Williams now the head was always good in his sub duty. Though now NBC news has leaned to the liberal left and I've turned to FOX News certainly in it's yesterday NBC News ruled the ranks of the big network three, at least in the opinion of me and my family.
