David Gregory’s time on ‘Meet the Press’ is almost up
New York Post Page Six ^ | July 23, 2014 | Emily Smith

According to insiders, NBC political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd is the rightful heir to Gregory, but he has not been officially offered the job.

Other names said to be in the frame include “Today” anchor Savannah Guthrie, who comes from a political background but is unlikely to be released from the flagship morning show where she’s hugely popular. Guthrie is also due to give birth to her first child next month and will return to “Today” after maternity leave.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” team of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have also been said to be angling for a Sunday slot, but NBC insiders said there are concerns about putting a partisan host in charge of “Meet the Press,” as Scarborough is a former Republican congressman.

He should be in prison for violation of the DC laws on magazines. However, as a member of the media-government poweratti, he was given a pass. Regardless, he is a criminal under DC law.

Lucky for Gregory they’re apparently set to make at least two more Planet of the Apes movies. So he’ll still have a paying gig.

Chuck Todd? He is so biased to the left if he gets the job it will be like if the head of the DNC were hosting Meet the Press. My choice would be Matt Lauer. He is one of the most unbiased hosts on NBC.

With Leno, we might get to laugh occasionally when he lied about how wonderful liberal policies and politicians are..........

Todd resides in Arlington, Virginia, with his wife, Kristian Denny Todd, daughter Margaret, and son Harrison. Kristian Denny Todd is a communications professional and cofounder of Maverick Strategies and Mail, which provides direct mail and consulting services for Democratic candidates and progressive causes; she was spokesperson for Senator candidate Jim Webb.

Oh, I see, Chuck Todd was the leftist radical Sen. Tom Harkin's (D-Iowa) chief of staff but that doesn't count, huh?

This is emblematic of how liberals parse the world. They are morally superior and in their mind they are the only legitimate ones to participate in any debate. Anyone not preaching their dogma is simply not legitimate, and doesn't count.

Liberals are twisted.

Isn’t it well past time for NBC to offer up a little “diversity” on its flagship news program? They can’t give it to the next available white guy. NBC should pay a hefty price if Al Sharpton isn’t given the position he rightly deserves.

“NBC political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd is the rightful heir to Gregory”

http://www.redstate.com/2013/09/09/spoken-like-a-democrat-married-to-a-democratic-operative/

Let’s use this as a timely reminder that Chuck Todd was once a Democratic staffer to Senator Tom Harkin and is married to Kristian Denny Todd who served as a communications person for the Democratic Party and then helped found Maverick Strategies and Mail, a consulting group for liberal candidates.

That’s a laugh... who is it that has been hosting ABC’s flagship Sunday News program? Clinton’s former official spokesman?
