I just finished watching President Obama’s press conference. He was great, as always. I was watching NBC’s coverage and Brian Williams went to David Gregory for his thoughts. The first thing out of D. Greg’s mouth was something to the effect of, “he opened this conference with a prepared statement, which he used a teleprompter.”
I just watched the President answer questions for 50 minutes with piercing eye contact and this man, this man who has turned Meet the Press into the Softball Show, has the nerve to propel this absurd, Fox News fueled, line of attack, like Obama is the only President who’s ever used one, like it’s some sort of crime.
To hell with David Gregory. We need to organize and boycott NBC.* I'm sick of their shit. From the Today Show to the Nightly News, their professionalism is sorely lacking. There's no objectivity or quality reporting, just schilling for whatever is best for GE/Universal. I want to hear any and all ideas. Who’s with me?
*That said, I am going to continue to watch Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann.
