Tom Brokaw returned to the airwaves Thursday after a health scare that sent him to the hospital. It turned out to be, in his words, a “dumb mistake,” as he accidentally took some Ambien and found himself making “less sense than usual” on the air, as we reported yesterday.
Brokaw was on hand Thursday evening for coverage of the Democratic Convention, and commented on the incident. Here’s a video from MSNBC in which Brokaw explains what happens. His comments begin about two and a half minutes into the clip, following some discussion of the convention — including an awkward attempt at a baseball analogy.
