David Gregory Tells Colbert: Press Will Hold Obama's Feet To The Fire (VIDEO)

David Gregory appeared on "The Colbert Report" Thursday night to discuss George Bush's presidency — his relationship with the media, in particular, and whether the press will treat President Obama the same way they treated President Bush.

After coming out with a display of his French language skills, Gregory defended the press' handling of the Bush administration.

"I actually do think that the right questions were asked," he said. "I think that people view our job through their own ideological prism and they've made some judgments along those lines."

Gregory also said that the press will keep Obama on his toes.

"I think the press will do a good job, I think the press will ask the right questions," he said. "I think you will see this press corps — I certainly will ask the same kinds of questions to this administration that I asked to the last. I think I asked tough questions of the last administration and I will do the same."
