“Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory is getting some flack for speaking to a gathering of the National Federation of Independent Business. The group, while bi-partisan, lobbies on behalf of Republican causes. ThinkProgress reports, the NFIB “spent over $1 million on outside ads in the 2010 campaign — all of it backing Republican House and Senate candidates.”
An NBC News spokeswoman tells TVNewser, “David finds it constructive to speak to and take questions from a variety of audiences. He was not compensated.”
