David Gregory has violated journalistic ethics by being the "keynote speaker" at a conference for a major Republican Advocacy group, the NFIB, on May 15, 2012. NBC claims he did not violate their rules. However, the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics states:
— Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived.
— Remain free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility.
— Refuse gifts, favors, fees, free travel and special treatment, and shun secondary employment, political involvement, public office and service in community organizations if they compromise journalistic integrity.
In addition, as moderator of Meet the Press, he shows his bias in favor of Republican politicians.
