Newsday’s Verne Gay has some suggestions for Meet the Press anchor David Gregory:
Gregory is terrifically polished, well-informed, a good listener and has the talking points of both sides down cold. But he also seems more intent on covering the waterfront than digging for news, or in pushing the talking heads off their talking points…Gregory has been handed perhaps the most important program in television journalism. It’s time to start acting like the king who rules wisely yet ruthlessly. Otherwise, his legacy will match that of Garrick Utley or Bill Monroe — moderators who were highly respected but not highly feared. In this job, it’s vital to be both.
