Let's face it: most of us don't like David Gregory. He's the smug brat we always hated in high school. No wonder so many of us are salivating at rumors that NBC may relieve the grey-haired wonder boy from his Meet the Press duties.
If a network wants to, it can destroy a talent. If a network wants to fight for that talent, it can, and not just with wimpy press statements -- no one buys those -- but proving it with what they do with the talent.
Meet the Press is the oldest and most treasured public affairs show on television. This is why the ongoing silence of David Gregory and NBC News -- following his apparent on-air violation of D.C. gun laws -- is so disconcerting.
