There is some big catch here somewhere.  If the network released actual information that Gregory is getting psychological testing, they would open themselves to a monstrous lawsuit for releasing such medical/psychological/personal information.  If Gregory signed a release allowing them to say it, then it is a ploy to gain "sympathetic" viewership, people coming to the rescue of the underdog newsperson.  Or it is a ploy by NBC to try and ascertain what the actual viewership interest is by checking responses at certain websites. :pondering:

The MSNBC side of the operation probably is in greater need of psychological help.

The Washington Post online scrubbed the article....so it's only available in print.

Threats of a lawsuit will do that to you.

I once sent David Gregory a tube of Desitin to help him with his diaper rash.....

I still smile when I think about it.  ^-^
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Obviously, it didn't work.
