<p>President Barack Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to 18 individuals on Monday afternoon with one of them being former <em>NBC Nightly News</em> anchor and reliably liberal supporter Tom Brokaw.</p>

<p>During Monday&rsquo;s <em>NBC Nightly News</em>, current anchor Brian Williams used two teases and a segment by NBC/MSNBC&rsquo;s Andrea Mitchell to hype the ceremony. In one tease, Williams touted Brokaw&rsquo;s big day at the White House: <strong>&ldquo;When we come back, a near and dear member of the NBC family among those awarded a high honor at the White House today.&rdquo;&nbsp;</strong></p>
