NBC’s David Gregory to Host Md. Democratic Gubernatorial Debate


David Gregory to moderate primary debate

It has been announced that journalist and embattled host of NBC’s Meet the Press David Gregory will moderate the first debate among Maryland’s top three Democratic candidates for governor on May 7, to be televised in the D.C. and Hagerstown, Md., markets.

Gregory has been taking it from all sides as Meet the Press has seen ratings fall under his stewardship. Less than two weeks ago, the Washington Post reported that NBC hired a “psychological consultant” a year ago “to get perspective and insight” presumably about what makes him less compelling than his predecessor Tim Russert.

Gubernatorial Hopeful Mizeur Supports Legalizing Pot

I bet Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Douglas F. Gansler figured he had the libertine vote all wrapped up after it was revealed that he had not only condoned but helped to fund an at least moderately debauched week-long party for his high school senior son and 11 of his classmates. But opponent Del. Heather Mizeur has upped the party-animal ante by announcing Tuesday that she supports legalizing marijuana for adults 21-and-up in Maryland.

Mizeur says that the regulation and taxation of the drug could generate, like, over $100 million annually in revenue for the state. She figures that’s enough to ensure every Maryland child has access to prekindergarten educational programs or whatever.

Which is, like, so dank of her.
