Analysis of both statements is found here.
The conclusion is that Linda is telling the truth about what happened. This is consistent with the accused refusing to deny it, instead, denying only a "romantic" motive. People who sexually assault others do not have an emotional motive of romance; they exploit.
Brokaw has now responded with a statement. We should expect him to say or write, "I did not assault Linda" and/or, "I did not sexually harass Linda."
A small portion of psycho-lingisitc profiling analysis of Linda shows:
1. She is likely a victim of childhood sexual abuse.
2. She suffers from some self loathing and from low self esteem, and anxiety, likely from childhood.
3. The impact, in spite of likely professional intervention, continues.
4. The context of the threat to her career increased the suffering she felt.
Some do not understand the nature of "intrusion" especially upon an adult victim of childhood sexual abuse. It is, as evident in her language, far more than putting his hands on her without her consent. It is to bring up unprocessed pain and create a deep sense of vulnerability and one being most unsafe. This is where depression and anxiety erode at a highly successful professional.
I think most men reading her statement would consider a "punch in the nose" if Tom Brokaw had done this to their wives, daughters, sisters, etc.
As both statements are read and analyzed, "Linguistic Human Empathy" is a Principe in analysis in which we:
a. believe the subject
b. seek to enter into the subject's verbalized perception of reality
c. allow the statement to guide us, even if outside information conflicts.
d. accept out of sequence information knowing that once the analysis is complete, it will no longer be out of sequence; it will make sense.
e. force the subject to talk us out of our position.
For example, in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, the analyst must enter the statement with the following presupposition:
Madeleine is kidnapped, held by unknown parties, and that Gerry and Kate are attempting to recover her. They are presupposed to be loving parents left bereft of their daughter; not sociopaths.
The analyst's presupposition is this and the result was that the McCanns literally talked the way out of this position.
Will Tom Brokaw issue a reliable denial?
Is Tom Brokaw a predator?
Let this answer come from his own words; not of his alleged accuser. Let him guide you.
The first thing noticed is the length. It is 1,043 words. This is significant because the psychological wall of truth needs a single sentence to stand upon its own merit. "I did not sexually assault Linda" would suffice.
It is also significant to analysts who wish to know four things about him:
1. His Background
2. His Experiences
3. His Motive and Priorities in writing
4. His dominant Personality Traits
Length of specific sentences speaks to emotion. Length of the entire statement speaks to its need to persuade.
