I don't get it.

Am I supposed to be up in arms? I know that David Gregory is a lefty, but this woman is too wimpy for words. Am I supposed to waste my righteous indignation on this triviality, instead of on the practice of the American government welcoming Moslem terrorists into our country, where they then murder Americans?

BOSTON (AP) -- A Boston Marathon bombing survivor says in a tweet that she left a Boston television studio in tears before a taping of NBC's "Meet the Press."

Dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost her left foot in the bombing and said Friday she asked the national news program not to mention the suspect's name but the show used it.

NBC News spokeswoman Erika Masonhall says Haslet-Davis was due to take part in a round-table discussion and asked that the suspects' names not be mentioned. Masonhall says given the nature of the discussion "Meet the Press" could not make that guarantee and regrets any distress caused by the miscommunication.

She says the NBC News president left a voicemail for Haslet-Davis apologizing for the confusion.

A message seeking comment was left with a representative for Haslet-Davis.
