It has been said that no good deed goes unpunished. The converse appears to be true as well, at least if you’re liberal.
Dylan Byers writes at Politico that David Gregory, who was originally reported by NBC to be heading out on vacation instead of hosting his weekly Sunday news program “Meet the Press,” will indeed be at his anchor desk tomorrow. Not only that, but he has been granted an exclusive interview with none other than President Barack Obama.
Gregory has been the subject of a police investigation after he showed an empty gun magazine clip on air while interviewing the president of the National Rifle Association last Sunday. Officials at the Washington Metropolitan Police Department have called the action illegal. NBC News has not commented on the investigation.
The sit-down, Obama’s first with Gregory in three years — his last was Sept. 20, 2009 — comes in the waning hours before the “fiscal cliff” deadline. After yesterday’s White House session, the president asserted that he was “modestly optimistic” that a deal would be reached.
