David Gregory Calls Psychological Consultant Report ‘Utter Fiction’

david gregoryDuring his weekly appearance on WTOP radio this morning, NBC’s David Gregory called a Washington Post report claiming NBC brought in a psychological consultant to work with him, “complete fiction.”

“There was never any psychological consultant hired. That’s utter fiction, that’s gossip reporting gone wild,” he said, adding, “It’s just complete fiction and has been kind of a runaway train.”

On Thursday, Gregory’s boss, NBC News president Deborah Turness sent a memo of support to Gregory’s “Meet the Press” team. Turness said while the show is undergiong changes, Gregory remains “at the helm … and will lead you and the program on the journey ahead.”

“I love doing this program, this is a wonderful program and we have such wonderful support of viewers particularly here in Washington, D.C. and we are just going to continue that and stay on plan,” Gregory said.
