Glenn Greenwald Disappointed There Won’t be a Sequel Interview With David Gregory

Much to Glenn Greenwald‘s dismay, there won’t be a sequel to last year’s lively exchange between him and David Gregory on this Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”

“That was really disappointing,” Greenwald told HuffPost Live today about Gregory not being the one interviewing him about his new book for Sunday’s “Meet the Press” (Pete Williams interviewed Greenwald instead).

Greenwald added he was looking forward to seeing if Gregory’s views might have changed since their last interview; in that exchange last June, Gregory asked Greenwald why he shouldn’t be charged criminally for aiding and abetting Edward Snowden. Greenwald responded it was extraordinary for Gregory to muse about other journalists’ arrests without evidence.

NBC News sources tell TVNewser Gregory not doing the interview with Greenwald, which was pre-taped today in New York City, was due to logistics, as Fridays are a busy day of show preparation for Gregory in Washington, DC.
