Boston Marathon Victim Leaves Taping of ‘Meet the Press’ in Tears
TV Newser ^ | April 11,2014 | Merrill Knox

A survivor of the Boston Marathon bombings — Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who was also the subject of a CNN profile earlier this week — left a taping “Meet the Press” in tears today.

In a series of tweets, Haslet-Davis said she “politely” asked the show not to use the bomber’s name in the pre-taped interview.

AdrianneHD @AdrianneHaslet

Cannot believe @meetthepress chose to use the bombers name instead of respect their guest. Had to walk off set crying. 1:23 PM - 11 Apr 2014 Boston, MA, United States

They would take the bombers side if they thought they could get away with it

NBC...the network whose Miami affiliate sponsors the “Gay Pride” parade in Miami Beach....won’t respect the wishes of a victim of a terrorist attack.

Stay classy, NBC.

I misread and took an improperly received “clue” from ...that the subject was..” also the subject of a CNN profile earlier this week”!

From the link: Meet the Press host, David Gregory, tweeted "I’m so sorry @AdrianneHaslet was upset tdy + had a bad experience w MTP. As I told her, her comfort level is far more imp than any show."

What a bunch of bs. If he was so concerned about her comfort level why didn't they respect her wishes?

The media are in it solely and completely for their own interest. Nothing else.

Libs like Gregory look up to terrorist scum like Tzarnaev, they consider him some kind of “Hero.”

CNN was taped earlier in the week, apparently without a problem. Meet the Press on NBC had no regard for the victim. Twerp David Whatzisname.

As Ms Haslet-Davis left the set in tears a NBC employee put a microphone in her face and asked, "How to you feeeel?"

(Probably happened. It's what employees of the MSM do.)

Meet the Press are the scum of the earth. I can remember years ago when they were pro-American.

David Gregory posted that. On this thread people are directly quoting him to illustrate what he is.
