Gregory, who left “Meet the Press” in August, will join his former NBC News colleague Katie Couric at the Yahoo News anchor desk for election night coverage. Gregory is not joining the company, but these appearances often can lead to more permanent placements. Matt Bai, who left the New York Times for Yahoo last year, and Politico’s Mike Allen are also a part of Yahoo’s coverage.

Fox News Responds to Obama’s “Freak” Charge

In this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, Matt Bai interviews Sen. Barack Obama about the campaign’s desire to win over working-class voters. At one point, Obama targets Fox News Channel for its characterization of him:

I am convinced that if there were no Fox News, I might be two or three points higher in the polls. If I were watching Fox News, I wouldn’t vote for me, right? Because the way I’m portrayed 24/7 is as a freak! I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?

In reaction to Sen. Obama’s comments, Fox News EVP of News Editorial John Moody tells TVNewser, “Senator Obama’s comments about Fox News are misdirected. If he is uncomfortable with tough questions, it may be because he has faced so few from the news media. The McCain campaign also complains when we make them squirm. We will continue to do hard, honest reporting and let American viewers decide if we’re being fair.”
