David Gregory teased Sunday Meet the Press by highlighting a clip of himself pushing Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to upset conservatives in getting a budget deal, presumably by agreeing to raise taxes. “We go behind the scenes and on the record with Governor Romney less than two months before the election to press him on how he will turn around the economy and solve the nation’s debt crisis.”

NBC then showed Gregory pressing Romney: “Are you prepared to cut a deal with Democrats that would cause conservatives to revolt? Is it that important to get a deal to get us away from this fiscal cliff?”

In the subsequent interview, Gregory pursued his agenda by cutting off Romney when the ex-Massachusetts Governor didn’t agree to with Gregory’s premise: “But are you going to, will you cut a deal to compromise even if it risks a conservative revolt?”
