[Ed. – Who would’ve thought the MSM could sink even lower?]
A survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing stormed off the set of NBC’s Meet the Press in tears on Friday after being asked to comment on Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev — after she was allegedly promised their names would not be mentioned.
Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a dancer who lost part of one leg during the attack, tweeted after the taping:
• I feel so disrespected @meetthepress I asked politely yesterday and you said yes. Now you choose to use the name instead.
• Cannot believe @meetthepress chose to use the bombers name instead of respect their guest. Had to walk off set crying.
• Let’s change the dialect to honor the survivors and not focus on the criminals. Shame on you @meetthepress.
Supporters came out in droves, and Ms. Halet-Davis tweeted many of the well-wishes.
Twitter user Holly Leone said Meet the Press had set a bad precedent with its “Disrespectful and deceitful” tactics.
Another said “never trust @davidgregory! Rock on, Adrianne!”
