David Gregory To Be Fired? NBC News Responds To Rumors

Earlier this week, iPad-exclusive publication The Daily reported that Meet the Press David Gregory could soon be on his way out at NBC, adding that his program has been losing out in total viewers this year “nearly half the time” to rival news program Face the Nation on CBS.

The New York Daily News, however, is reporting that NBC News has denied “the rumors recklessly reported by The Daily” as being “categorically untrue,” also slamming CBS for engaging in what the statement refers to as “ratings gimmickry.”

A CBS News spokesperson, meanwhile, responded that they are pleased that host Bob Schieffer‘s “insightful approach is resonating with so many viewers and newsmakers.”
