NBC's David Gregory said on Friday that the Washington media doesn't like President Obama very much.

Speaking on "Today," the "Meet the Press" host said there has long been tension between the two sides. That tension has found its most recent outlet in the kerfuffle over Bob Woodward's emails with White House economic adviser Gene Sperling. Gregory said that the intensity of the debate emanated in part from the mutual disdain both sides felt for each other.

"The President does not particularly like the Washington press corps," Gregory said. "And I think that feeling is mutual in a lot of respects. And so there's not a great relationship between that Washington establishment and the President." He added that the situation was not "unprecedented."
