Boston Marathon victim storms off Meet the Press set after interview ambush
The Washington Times ^ | April 11, 2014 | By Douglas Ernst

Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis allegedly walked out of the set of Meet the Press with David Gregory.

A survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing stormed off the set of NBC’s Meet the Press in tears on Friday after being asked to comment on Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev — after she was allegedly promised their names would not be mentioned.

Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a dancer who lost part of one leg during the attack, tweeted after the taping:

I feel so disrespected @meetthepress I asked politely yesterday and you said yes. Now you choose to use the name instead.

David Gregory has neither decency or humanity. With him, anything goes that advances the progressive agenda—regardless of whether his actions hurt innocent people.

Doesn't tweeting pretty much require you have one of those smartphone things?

Simply, these scum are near the bottom of viewership, and hence, in the last desperate throes of gaining viewers.

On the one hand, it was wrong and stupid of Press The Meat to have AGREED not to mention the bombers’ names as a condition of anyone’s appearing on the show.

But on the other hand, a deal is a deal. If the show made such an agreement, Gregory can’t be surprised if the guests become enraged at the bait and switch.

I joined Twitter on my little laptop about 4 years ago,realized it wasn’t for me,and haven’t looked at it since.

If a news reader starts reading Tweets I just change the channel. Mindless drivel.

A promise from today's political class is only a means to get one to agree to something at that moment.

Remember, these are the people who "keep the promises they meant to keep."

Probably because she’d been through a traumatic life changing event and didn’t want to deal with those emotions on national TV.

Just a guess.

“Or you can go back to stone tablets.”

Or lose elections. Many believe that it was Obama’s use of huge amounts of data and electronic media that enabled them to get out the vote and win. Probably used to get out the vote more than once.

#vote4me: “Bus no.8, leaves Deerborn to Detroit at 8am. Free cigs.”

#vote4me: “Vanpools from Detroit to North Heights at 10am, free soda. Don’t forget, no ‘Che Guevara’ t-shirts”.

That is what WE need to be doing - but legally.

#rightvote: “District 16 exit polls are close - who needs a ride?”
