After a week spent writing post after post about "House of Cards" and its troubles in Maryland, I had a chance Sunday on Howie Kurtz's "Media Buzz" to finally weigh in on the troubles of "Meet the Press" and its host, David Gregory. It's been a bad three years for the show as it went from first to third place in the Sunday morning wars. And Gregory's failure as a host was brought ijnto sharp focus last week with a report that NBC News hired a "psychological consultant" to interview Gregory's wife, friends and others about him. NBC claims it was a "brand consultant' -- not a shrink -- as if that is so much better.

Believe me, I didn't go looking in my Sunday morning TV viewing for more evidence of what a journalistically bankrupt operation NBC News had become. It's fish in a barrel these days. Turn to NBC News for almost any given broadcast, and you'll find more proof than you can use of how politicized and lost it has become. But when I heard David Gregory promoting an interview that Cynthia McFadden did with senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett I had to watch. And then, I had to try not to gag as Gregory introduced it by saying, "Our Cynthia McFadden was granted unique access and spent a day behind the scenes with Valerie Jarrett at the White House.

Hollywood is populated by more than a few thin-skinned actors who protect their privacy more than they do their money.Nobody talks to Tom Cruise without first signing a release promising that you won't ask touchy questions. Ask Jodie Foster a toughie and she'll cut out your heart. Other actresses have been known to walk out on interviews when they didn't like the line of questioning.So publicists from Warner Bros. understandably were queasy when Ted Danson and Whoopi Goldberg were about to meet the press to publicize their movie, "Made in America," which opens Friday.

Baltimore Archbishop-designate William Lori said that the U.S. is witnessing "an erosion of religious liberty" and that a sign of it is the Obama administration's attempt to ensure Catholic schools, hospitals and charities provide birth control coverage as part of their employees' health insurance package. Lori, appearing as part of an Easter-morning round-table discussion on NBC's "Meet the Press," said he would not characterize the current atmosphere as a "war" on religion. But he termed the proposed federal mandate, which has been altered to make it more palatable to Catholics, "one of the most important of these underminings of religious liberty.

WASHINGTON -- Meet the Press moderator Tim Russert testified yesterday that he never gave former vice presidential aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby information about the wife of a Bush administration war critic, contradicting the premise of Libby's defense of perjury charges. Russert became the third journalist in the federal court trial to offer testimony that counters statements that Libby told investigators and a grand jury probing the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame. The conversations - and alleged lies that Libby offered about them - form the crux of his perjury and obstruction indictment.

In the highly competitive news business in this ultra-political town, a constant battle goes on among reporters to obtain interviews with the most knowledgeable governmental insiders from the White House to Congress. This is particularly so among television anchors vying to bag superstars for their shows. The acquisition of such targets is called a "get," as the word clearly conveys. The high-powered networks employ aggressive off-air staffers to identify, locate, cajole and besiege the brightest lights in the political firmament to appear on their "air" in the never-ending quest for the highest viewer ratings.

Reporting on its attempts to improve the HealthCare.gov portal, officials said that web pages on the site now load in less than a second, down from eight seconds in late October. The system now operates more than 90 percent of the time, up from 40 percent during some weeks in October.

For us aging Vietnam War protesters, the secret domestic surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden, a young former CIA contractor, is like a bad flashback. In 1968, Lyndon Johnson demanded that something be done to curb the demonstrations that were erupting on college campuses. They had begun as anti-war protests but had broadened to include social issues, especially civil rights. The president believed the demonstrations were part of an organized effort to destabilize the government, and the gloves came off. It wasn't until 1974 that Seymour Hersh, reporting for The New York Times, revealed that the CIA had been conducting a massive, illegal domestic intelligence operation against the anti-war movement and other dissident groups.
