NBC stands firmly behind Meet the Press moderator David Gregory, subject of speculation after media reports said that the network enlisted a “psychological consultant” to interview Gregory’s wife and friends. The consultant was commissioned to assist with a marketing campaign, clarified NBC. In a memo to staff last week, NBC News chief Deborah Turness said, “There has been a great deal written about Meet the Press in the past few days, much of it quite ludicrous. I wanted to reach out to reiterate my support for the show and for David, now and into the future as we work together to evolve the format.”
