Yesterday, NBC announced that David Gregory would replace Tim Russert as the new host of their venerable Sunday AM talk show MEET THE PRESS.
A couple of years ago, while serving as guest host during one of Mr. Russert’s vacations, Mr. Gregory facilitated one of the most infuriating exchanges in recent memory. Reuel Marc Gerecht of the American Enterprise Institute actually said on air: “…women’s social rights are not critical to the evolution of democracy…”
And what was Mr. Gregory’s response to this incredibly insensitive comment? Nothing! He let this despicable remark stand without even asking a single follow-up question!
Message to David Gregory: I was NOT “thrilled” & we’ll be watching!!!
