So, they are calling her a liar. I would have walked off, too, and certainly would accept an apology with a lie in it.

Why would anyone agree to an interview with a-hole David Gregory?

Don't get why mentioning the perp's name causes such angst.   She should never have agreed to the interview in the first place.

Way too fragile.

Guessing you don't know  whole lot of people with PTSD. Weird things can trigger people. She lost a good chunk of leg, thanks to these assholes. While we call that Thursday, she's a dancer. Her legs are kind of important to her.

Saying "the perp" or "the bomber" is neutral. A name goes with a face and that suddenly becomes personal as hell.

True. She knew hearing the name would trigger raw emotion, along with giving him attention. That is why she asked them not to use it. They promised, then reneged on the promise. I would have done the same.

Your decision to back out on that promise you made and the horrific way you brought that decision to my attention just minutes prior to taping was not only a cowardice move but a dishonorable one as well.

It sounds like this isn't a matter of surprising her with no notice but a matter of timing.  From her statement I gather that she knew prior to taping that they were changing the deal.  I sympathize with her having to go through hell for the last year, but if she knew before taping started that they were going to mention the guy's name she could have backed out, too.  She could have walked out as soon as she became aware, rather than waiting until the interview started.  Whatever consequences might have ensued would surely have been better than having to hear his name.

I dunno. They made a verbal agreement with her - then changed it.

I have a lot of sympathy for her - her life is totally different now thanks to a pair of assholes, and she just wanted to tell her tale. Everyone has one, ask any bar tender.
