Diary is a bit on the brief side but I didn't see anyone else mention this yet. Also this comes via the New York Post's Page Six so as Rachael Maddow says, consider the source.

David Gregory's tie on Meet The Press is almost up

Granted the article states that he could be replaced after the November midterms. I would think it rather stunning that a show that had it ratings plummet 43% since taking over on 2008 would continue to keep him on. Names being thrown about have included Savannah Guthrie and Chuck Todd, who in my opinion would be almost the same corporate right leaning schill as Gregory and would make him an preferable replacement in the eyes of the bosses at Comcast.

This of course would also change not a damn thing. It's astounding that people choose to ignore the words of wisdom that those who don't learn history are condemned to repeat it. Have these people not realized the difference between now and then was Tim Russert? He was a rare breed of journalist. Hard hitting with a great understanding of the facts and only rarely would spin a story. You couldn't get that from Todd on a good day. As for Guthrie, I hope she would prove me wrong but I don't see any evidence that she could run MTP any better. All I've seen of her has been on the Today show, hardly a high mark for journalism. If she's done other work for NBC, I haven't seen it.

All I know is Gregory's a goner and good for us.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
