David Gregory, Unplugged (Gregory afraid to be interviewed about his tantrums)
Hugh Hewitt ^ | 2/18/06 | Hugh Hewitt

Posted on 02/18/2006 10:35:53 AM PST by frankjr

" [T]he debate playing out in the blogosphere, cable airwaves and on talk radio pits the Vice President against an allegedly left-wing, overly cynical, prissy White House press corps in a tizzy because it wasn't the first to know and angry because it hates the President and Vice President anyway. "

That's exactly right. And it comes from NBC's David Gregory.

Gregory goes on to announce that this description is "nonsense," but of course Gregory has not allowed himself to be questioned outside of his network. He doesn't return calls and he won't make himself available for questions about what appears to be his deep seated hostility for the vice president and the Administration.

A professional would have calmly assenbled the facts and asked specific questions from McClellan. Gregory's overheated demands to know the president's "feelings" about the incident revealed a great deal about Gregory's bias and his talents. Soxblog suggested in his 2/15 post that those who know Gregory say he is wrongly judged on his meltdown this week, but unless and until Gregory is as willing to answer questions as he is to pose them, we can assume that what we saw is what he is.

Gregory is now caught up in controversy and he's both stonewalling and trying to change the subject.

Poor little Davey refuses to face the media himself. What a tough guy.

Feel free to leave a comment for Gregory on his blog.

I have e-mailed NBC three times this week to fire him.
He is obviously thinks he is more important than the Administration. His lack of respect for the Office of the President is over the top. I would revoke his Press Pass in a microsecond.

He will never again be taken seriously and that is GOOD.

Drama queen and a nasty one at that.

I read the "I was just doing my job" article by that whiner Gregory, followed by readers' comments, most of which were fawning over him: "Oh, you're the greatest journalist EVER!" "Oh, you just have to keep asking these hard questions or we'll never know ANYTHING!" "Oh, you're just wonderful!" Clearly, a case of Stupid and his fans, Stupider.

He's been hiding for more than 48 hours.

It's not the tantrum, it's the cover up.

This is hilarious. We won't see him interviewed by anyone on the matter either.

I was taken aback by his arrogance, and I find it illuminating that Mr. Gregory has no sense of himself or is peer group. MSM's fate seems intertwined with that of the Democratic Party, and that is to say it is in a tailspin. My only hope is that they both do some soulsearching whether by critical reflective aknowledgement of thier tepid state or merely a market response to become relevant again.

If NBC ever did fire him, he'd be hired quickly at CNN...
