David Gregory: “It’s Wrong To Mistake Aggressive Reporting For Political Bias”

Howard Kurtz reveals: “The person behind FireDavidGregory.com is Ian Schwartz, an 18-year-old college student in Baltimore.”

(This site was pretty sure it was Schwartz almost three weeks ago.)

Schwartz says he “generally have a distaste for the mainstream media.” NBC’s David Gregory said he didn’t take the site very seriously. He says:

“What concerns me is that it’s increasingly true that people are viewing the news and political coverage through their own ideological lens. It’s wrong to mistake aggressive reporting for political bias. It’s a mistake to ascribe motives to people who cover the White House day in and day out. People watch me in a briefing and draw a conclusion based on that. They won’t even wait to see what I report.”
