Is “Meet The Press” on its way out?


It won’t bother me a bit if THIS PROGRAM is scrapped:

As we head into 2014, the fate of the longest-running news program on television is starting to look uncertain. According to a new report from the New York Post’s Claire Atkinson, NBC News chief Deborah Turness is looking to make some major cutbacks at the network’s Washington D.C. bureau, where “Meet The Press” is produced.

Atkinson quotes one unnamed executive as saying, “Instead of getting better, NBC News has been getting worse [since Turness arrived earlier this year.] It’s a mess.” In October, the reporter cited rumors about Morning Joe’s Jpe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski adding “Meet The Press” hosting duties to their already full 15 hours a week on MSNBC.

“Meet The Press,” which used to be the perennial first place finisher on Sunday mornings over ABC’s This Week and CBS’ Face The Nation, fell to a 21-year low over the summer and has been coming in third place behind those two show for much of 2013.

    After many decades of watching Meet the Press, a program which seemed so balanced before, now seems to be a heavily conservative right, bent only on bringing in crazy Republicans to vent their hatred of President Obama. Gregory does interviews attacking an effort to provide healthcare , by bringing on the Ted Cruzes, yet provides little balance of the Act’s benefits for many Americans. It is a shame how David Gregory has ruined such a terrific show with his hard right presentations.
    I remember seeing a skit where David Gregory was dancing and rapping on stage with the likes of Karl Rove. He should be kicked off the show, the show should be rebuilt, and Gregory can freely dance on with Rove and friends like Cruz, Issa, and others in the gangs of negativism and obstructionism.,
    Say goodnight Gregory!
