  • HuffPo, Gregory and “Meet”

    >UPDATE: Politico’s Mike Allen hears what Danny Shea is hearing, adding another layer of credibility to the Gregory story. (“Enjoying a gravitas boost from his prematurely salt-and-pepper mane and friendships with Tom Brokaw and other of the legendary figures of NBC News, Gregory quickly became one of the biggest network stars of his generation. … Betsy Fischer, one of Washington’s most respected behind-the-scenes network forces, will remain as executive producer, the executives said. The executives provided elliptical information that did not either raise or preclude the possibility that a supporting cast could be named along with Gregory.”)

    david_gregory-mtp-752133.jpgLast night, the Huffington Post’s Danny Shea reported: “David Gregory will take the reins as moderator of NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’ the Huffington Post has learned.”

    We’re hearing that nothing’s final (trial balloon?!?), but Shea may very well be proven right. (Gregory’s agent wouldn’t confirm or deny anything when asked by the Observer and the New York Times wrote: “NBC executives said Monday night that no announcement of the replacement for the late Tim Russert is planned for Tuesday, though the executives did not deny that Mr. Gregory may be named to the position at some point.”)

    (We expect the official announcement to be made on this Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”)

    What do you think?

    David Gregory as “Meet” host…?
    ( surveys)

    Still, there are 1,800 comments to Shea’s article on Huffington Post. You’ll notice that most of the reaction to the notion of Gregory as “Meet” host is negative (see our own Pete Sampras theory about Gregory) and lots wanted Rachel Maddow. (Don’t worry, David: Jessi Klein has a crush on you). This is notable because, while some Internet commenters can certainly be harsh and crude at times, Huffington Post is a liberal site and Gregory became a hero of the left during his sharp questioning of George W. Bush‘s press secretaries.

    Some of the more notable, after the jump…

    “Race To The White House” Changes Its Name

    TVNewser’s Chris Ariens reports that David Gregory‘s “Race to the White House” will now be called “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”

    Which is probably good, since this Reagan National Airport store might sue MSNBC (or vice versa?) for Name Stealing:

    “I’m In Love With David Gergen”

    img-david-gergen-_142308819606.jpg

    You have not misread this headline. Over at The Daily Beast, Jessi Klein says:

      How do I love David Gergen? Let me count the ways.

      I love his low, quiet voice. That unmodulated buttery whisper that sounds like it’s elbowing its way past a cough drop that’s permanently lodged at the back of his throat. You know how Bed Bath & Beyond sells those white noise machines that help you sleep? And they usually make ocean noises? I want one that’s just David Gergen gently muttering about the economy.
