Boston Marathon victim storms off ‘Meet the Press’ set after interview ambush

[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.

Another said “never trust @davidgregory! Rock on, Adrianne!”
