Page Six Reports David Gregory to Leave MTP Soon After Midterms
NewsBusters ^ | July 23, 2014 | P.J. Gladnick

"We regret to report that David Gregory will be leaving Meet The Press in order to spend more time with his family." Or perhaps it will be, "David Gregory is leaving Meet The Press in order to pursue other projects."

Those are a couple of  polite corporate ways to announce the firing of the Meet The Press host with the terrible ratings. According to the New York Post's Page Six, the replacement of David Gregory could be happening right after the midterm elections. No surprise there given the fact that under Gregory, Meet The Press has fallen to last place in the broadcast television Sunday interview shows. Also not surprising is that NBC is planning on replacing liberal Gregory with equally liberal Chuck Todd or Savannah Guthrie according to the Page Six report:

One sure way to make the MTP ratings SOAR would be to hire Laura Ingraham as host of Meet The Press but the chances of NBC doing that is somewhere between nil and none.

...to be replaced by that objective guy, Chuck Todd.

Hilariously, that non-stop, stab-in-the-back careerist, Joe Scarborough is dying for the job.

For a program such as Meet The Press, the removal of the likes of Gregory is colloquially known as rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic.

The squirrels over at DU complain about David Gregory being a right winger. No, seriously - they do. They will be happy about this as well.

To them a “Right Winger” is someone who is actually somewhat cordial to a Republican.

He'll be a regular panel member on Morning Joe.

"We regret to report that David Gregory will be leaving Meet The Press in order to spend more time with his family." Or perhaps it will be, "David Gregory is leaving Meet The Press in order to pursue other projects."

Well, both those do sound a bit better than the truth, e.g.:

We regret to report that David Gregory will be leaving Meet The Press due to his abject incompetence and his startling inability to attract and hold any kind of audience.

or

We regret to report that David Gregory will be leaving Meet The Press in order to undergo a badly-needed personality transplant.

Is he leaving because he’s crazy, or because his ratings are low?

I don’t think David Gregory has too much to worry about. After all, he’s already bee made immortal by having his picture next to “smirk” and “smarmy” in every online dictionary on the Internet.
