This morning, NBC eminence grise Tom Brokaw was sent to the hospital after feeling "light-headed" on the set of Morning Joe. A NBC spokesperson told Politico, "On the set of 'Morning Joe' this morning, Tom Brokaw felt light-headed. Out of an abundance of caution, he was taken to a hospital. He is being evaluated and is in good spirits."
Brokaw, who has been in Charlotte, NC covering the Democratic National Convention (hell, he was chatting with Sean Hannity!), was released and blamed Ambien, Tweeting:
All is wellEarly AM I mistakenly took a half dose of Ambien and made less sense than usual. Made a better comeback than Giants...

At least he wasn't behind the wheel of a car at the time!
