Gregory (and NBC) called to task by Laura Ingraham on the Today show this morning...follow up on O'Reilly
Newsbusters covers the smackdown provided by Ingraham in "Laura in the Lions Den":
Like a top point guard, Laura Ingraham tenaciously fought through the Gregory-Carville double-team to make her case. She pointed out that NBC and the Today show expended huge resources to cover the Olympics and even to answer the question "Where in the World is Matt Lauer?" She suggested that they devote some of the same resources to broadcast the Today show directly from Iraq, that they accompany troops, speak with US and Iraqi military personnel and with villagers and see the reality on the ground.Ingraham later appeared on the O'Reilly Factor to talk about the morning's experience with Carville and Gregory.
Instead, pointed out Ingraham, the MSM's approach is to stand on a balcony in the Green Zone, reporting on the latest IEDs, killings and reprisals. A timorous Gregory replied: "And you think Iraq is safe enough [to do what Laura proposed]?" Ingraham: "Yes. I was not on the hotel balcony. I was out with the U.S. military. It can be done in any part of the country." Laura attempted to continue, but Gregory cut her off: "I get the anti-network point."
When Carville launched into an extended guffaw at Laura's expense, Ingraham riposted, off camera: "It's not funny." Things got testy and contentiousness, as Carville, any pretense of Southern chivalry gone, used the hackneyed line on Laura: "excuse me for speaking while you're interrupting." When Gregory asked Carville what his advice to President Bush would be, Carville 'helpfully' suggested: "Talk about the consequences of failure." That's the American spirit: DNC/MSM-style.

David Gregory is a clown and should really consider drinking more.
On that silly topic from Newsbusters: Juan Williams criticized Gregory and his recent stunts on the O'Reilly Factor:
"This guy is trying to advance his career by being a clown," Fox News commentator Juan Williams said on the "O'Reilly Factor," adding: "He's laughing and pretending. We don't know if he was drunk, but it sure came across that way."-Home-
