While ratings for Sunday's number one news program have continued to grow under Tom Brokaw's conservatorship, media reports are circulating that David Gregory is in final talks to host Meet the Press. He's about the worst possible choice out of the circle of contenders. I was strongly rooting for Chuck Todd, who was Tim Russert's protege, to take over. But there were a few other strong choices like Ted Koppel that I would have been happy to watch as well. If this story pans out, I'm switching to Face the Nation, hosted by a man I respect. Despite poor ratings for his MSNBC show and zero ability to attract newsmakers to appear, Gregory is getting the nod -- apparently to hold him until Matt Lauer decides to retire. Because every decision Jeff Zucker makes is about what's best for Today. Without getting into politics, is any one else bummed about this decision?
