Tim Russert spent decades building NBC News’ “Meet the Press” into the benchmark of Sunday morning appointment television. But his replacement, David Gregory, has fallen into the same pit of partisanship that has turned the rest of NBC’s news apparatus into a weird little carnival of mealymouthed mendacity.
