When you think of Meet the Press host David Gregory, a lot of things might come to mind, but “tool of the GOP” probably isn’t one of them. Except for some, obviously.
Gregory, who knows a little about brushes with the law, interviewed Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald about his role in reporting the Edward Snowden NSA leaks. Gregory had a question for Greenwald:
Somehow that makes Gregory a “GOP puppet” even though the last time we checked, the administration that has been snooping on reporters’ phone records and pondering charging a member of the press with crimes is fully controlled by Democrats. However, that didn’t stop some from accusing Gregory of being a shill for the Republicans:
Here’s a counter-productive argument if we ever heard one:
.@ggreenwald David Gregory would never have asked that question if there were a Republican president.

Exactly, and that’s why associating Gregory with The Right because of his question to Greenwald is ridiculous.
For other tweeters, it was a different story:
Is there a more self-satisfied, self-righteous, Obama-enabling media figure out there today than David Gregory? http://t.co/XQ1sixvyS3

I was jailed by Mugabe's Zimbabwe for "practicing journalism". Is David Gregory saying Obama's America should do the same to @ggreenwald?

When does David Gregory leave #mtp for his job in Obama Adm? Might as well make it an official job.
