NBC supports David Gregory for 'Meet the Press'

NBC’s news chief says she supports embattled Meet the Press moderator David Gregory “now and into the future” as the Sunday morning public affairs program tries to turn around sinking ratings.

The network has been concerned by the reaction to a story published Sunday in The Washington Post that said that NBC commissioned a “psychological consultant” to interview Gregory’s wife and friends.

During Sunday’s Meet the Press, David Gregory held up what he described as a 30-round magazine of ammunition as part of an interview with the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre. The Washington Metropolitan Police Department is investigating whether Gregory and NBC violated D.C. gun laws during the segment.
