<p>On Monday, the White House announced that President Obama would <a href="http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/tom-brokaw-to-receive-nations-highe…; target="_blank">award the Presidential Medal of Freedom</a> to former <em>NBC Nightly News</em> anchor and current special correspondent Tom Brokaw &ndash; among other 2014 recipients. <em>Today</em> news anchor Natalie Morales touted the announcement on Monday, noting: &quot;Obama said in a statement, these citizens have made extraordinary contributions to our country and the world.&quot;</p>

<p>Brokaw has repeatedly taken the opportunity to boost or defend Barack Obama throughout his presidency. That made it no surprise that the commander-in-chief would want to reward such a loyal media supporter.</p>
