Roger Ailes Lets David Gregory Know

baron

He would neeeever be treated so crassly over at Fox.

Of course, that's not what the headline says:
NBC Facing Harsh Criticism For Its Handling Of David Gregory Drama
...
Surprisingly, the most vocal criticism of NBC's actions came from rival Fox News. Host Greta Van Susteren wrote on her blog that the network was treating Gregory in a "painful" and "wicked" way by not resolving the situation swiftly.

"They are letting one of their longest running employees get smacked around in the media. This is not about whether you like Gregory or not — it is how management deals with an employee," she added.

Gregory's Sunday counterpart Chris Wallace, who used to moderate "Meet The Press," also attacked NBC.
...
Because there will always be plenty of room for new meat with Gregory's pedigree in the Roger Ailes stable:

It's almost as if the honchos at Fox liked the job Gregory was doing or something.

It's funny that when it comes to media personalities, conservatives give a shit if management treats its employees like shit.

For every other profession, management's role is supposed to be to treat their employees like shit. Otherwise something something socialism, and then something something tyranny.

There. Is. A. Club.

Maybe those folks at FOX really did get a boner from Gregory. Getting bothered over the Treatment of Gregory.
when you get free on another network in which you would have to pay for it otherwise, well you get it.

---Most likely, FOX folks are actually concerned who MSNBc places in Gregory's place and how a new face will compete with the FOXy competitor.
They are probably NOT so sure how "we all do it" Chuck might effect there ratings.

I've been telling them for two years that they should go back to the original format of a revolving panel of journalists and reporters.

They never listen to me.

David Gregory can stop the smacking around of David Gregory by asking tough questions on Sunday morning; that is to say, when Newt/John/Lindsay/Whomever comes on the show and pisses on David's foot, David should stop reporting that it's raining and say that someone is pissing on his foot.

As for how management treatsw him: For F**ks sake, they wildly overpay him. Greta doesn't bat an eye at how badly Wal-mart treats its employees, but then I have long observed that companies tend to treat lowly-paid employees badly in all matters. David continuing to cash big checks for shoddy work is the sort of treatment all of us hope to suffer through

```Surprisingly?'' ``Surprisingly'' the most vocal critic is Greta? Shit, Fox ''News'' clearly sees Gregory as a colleague and an ally in the disinformation project they've been running for two decades.
