NBC Has a Very Hard Time Coming Up With David Gregory’s Greatest Hits
David Gregory’s first day off the job as host of NBC’s Meet the Press was today. He has reportedly been paid $4 million in hush money and to go quietly into the night.
On the show today Andrea Mitchell highlighted some of the ahem, so-called “highlights” of Gregory’s seven year stint at MTP but it was painful because really, there weren’t any highlights:
As you may be aware, David Gregory’s final show as moderator of Meet the Press was last Sunday. Meet the Press makes a lot of history. And a great deal of it was with David at the helm since he started in December 2008.
Vice President Joe Biden made front-page news when he got ahead of the president in 2012 and embraced gay marriage.
And an important moment of the 2012 presidential primary, when David moderated a GOP debate live on a Sunday morning just two days before the New Hampshire primary. Then there was David’s landmark interview in Afghanistan, 2010 with General David Petraeus, after he took command of U.S. and NATO forces.
Seven years and that’s all they could come up with to summarize Gregory’s tenure.
SMDH. What a waste of everyone’s time except Gregory’s. He’s the big winner here…to the tune of that $4 million.
