Dear Mr. Gregory,

If you are wondering why Meet the Press has recently been struggling in the ratings, I would like to offer a few suggestions.

First, your obsession with Hillary Clinton is unbecoming. To be honest, it's a little embarrassing. I recommend focusing on real 2014 races that are happening in the present, instead of spending half of your show dripping with speculation on a presidential election that is more than two years away.

I'm not sure if you got the memo, but Clinton hasn't even announced that she's running yet. Some of us in states like Florida have more important things to think about, like the upcoming 2014 gubernatorial election. Regardless of where you live, 2014 elections will undoubtedly affect all Americans profoundly, and they're right in front of our noses, like a stray bullet fired as a warning shot from a concealed weapon.

Second, please consider dropping "As a father" and "As a man of faith" to qualify your opinions. For many viewers, this does nothing to increase your credibility as a journalist. In fact, for some of us, it diminishes it.

One interesting observation is that you identify yourself as Jewish, but I seem to hear something about the Pope every other Sunday on your show. If you want to talk about Catholicism, I suggest having an afternoon cocktail with Dan Brown, or better yet, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Finally, go out and get yourself a nice Tim Russert mask.  Sorry man, we just really miss that guy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
